The printing department currently has two types of printing techniques; basic screen printing and digital printing, the combination of which allows them to accommodate any material, size or area. With 120 people on the team they cater to the whole factory using up 650 kgs of ink per month. Looking to the future they are currently experimenting with software for the Big Boat Sail Section and are looking to enhance the digital department and nurture the traditional methods of screen printing to cover the areas digital cannot.
