Quality and reliability, that’s what Grafityp customers say they want. Cheap inferior products are fine if you can use them, but if you start having problems, wasting bits here and there, product not performing as it should, customers rejecting work, then the small savings are quickly eroded.

That may lead you to think that our products are expensive, but in reality that is not the case. A quick phone call or brief e-mail is all it takes to find out; in some cases we have saved companies very large amounts of money on their purchases. “If we can we will, and very often we do”, said Sales Director Neil Stevenson. He went on to say, “Here at Grafityp UK we supply our customers with what we consider to be the best products available at the best prices possible”.

The Siser range offered by Grafityp is comprehensive and includes materials for a whole host of various applications.

Standard Grafiflex is a thicker material and often described as the original flex product, Siser call this product VideoFlex. Grafiflex PU (VideoFlex PU) is a PVC free material for plotter cutting; it features a very thin layer whilst guaranteeing opacity and high covering ability. Grafiflex PU is the ideal material for multi-layering applications. Grafiflex PS (VideoFlex PS) is very similar to the PU film but also benefits from an adhesive backing to give a little stability and less movement of graphics during application. Custom colours can also be ordered in this product subject to the minimum quantity requirement. Grafiflex Extra is a cad cut range specially developed for application onto nylon and other so called “difficult” materials, an ideal choice for sportswear items. Grafiflex fashion is a range of plotter cut materials specially developed for the fashion industry and leisure; they include glitters and special effects and the popular Electric series – ideal for speciality designs with a difference.

Elasticut is a Cad-Cut® highly stretchable material for extremely thin decorations. Specially developed for elastic fabrics (Lycra®, Elastane®, etc), it is also very suitable for normal type fabrics (Cotton, Polyester). The stretchability of this material again makes it an ideal solution for use on sportswear garments.
