Hydrographics Custom Film Development

At Hydro Concepts Australia, with the assistance of our special Graphics Designers department we have the capabilities to develop your unique hydrographic film with your specific requirements. We can work with your existing art and modify it based on custom art on your behalf.

Our team will deliver samples of the design prior going to production for your approvals if requested.

We provide two types of printing methods ( Gravure printing or Digital Format ) depending on the volume production and requirements our customers needs.

How does it work?

Contact via email or phone our support line with your request, our team will guide you to with our requirements for the design format requirements we need to start your project. Our team provides a designer for your business to assist with the design or we can do it in house for you

What happens next?

Gravure Printing:  During the production of your design we must determine and check the number of colours included in the pattern. Every colour requires its own special cylinder to be produced with the artwork. Normally 4 colours is what we need to produce a multicolour design.
Once the design has been evaluated, our team will work with you directly with all the important details about duration and estimated cost to develop the film including production timelines.

Our production cylinders are of the highest quality  fabrication and they are capable of printing thousands of meters of film in 50, 100cm or under a special request available in 130cm widths.

Digital Printing

Hydrographics Printing OEM media:  Our Australian production team has developed as world first for small production runs using digital printing directly on hydrographics OEM media  which can accommodate volumes  starting from 1 meter  lengths production in 50cm or 100cm width media.

The inks used during the digital printing are highest quality specially formulated for our process with 100% UV protection and  can retain their colour integrity unsealed for many year.

Our Exclusive hydrographics  digital printing service is available to customers who require small production runs using ours or their own designs  with a faster turnaround time starting from 24 hours to 1 week depending on the design requirements.

Water Transfer Decal Printing  (No length media restrictions  & No Activation required)

Our custom Water Transfer Decal digital printing products allow you to decorate any 3D solid objects on almost any surface. We have developed endless printing lengths capabilities  and up to 1.5 metres wide media that we can produce. Our business can also cut to size if requested. With our exclusive products and service we are able to design or receive your design and print it to your specifications.

Our printing production is capable of 1200 dpi image quality using CMYK colours.

The final product transferred is the thinnest available in the market which means it will leave almost no edge when its applied properly and will be UV resistance using our specialised ink during our production however, we recommend a clear coat sealer to be applied when possible to provide the extra strength for many years of hard wearing items.

We can supply the finish printed product in a unsealed or sealed in matte to glossy finish for Commercial or personal sector

If you would like to print your own images on our decal materials, this is also possible. We offer ‘Do It Yourself’ decal products through our online store, meaning you can print your own images from your very own inkjet or Commercial Printer.
