[INFO] Materials Used by Red Bubble

  • Cards

Printed on our Durst Theta, bonded to high quality 200 gsm card, creased and packed with an envelope ready to write on, give away or just admire.

  • T-Shirts

We spent months scouring the world for the best quality t-shirts that were strong, stylish and sweat-shop free, we found them in American Apparel. Manufactured in downtown LA, their quality cuts look great on both men and women. We’re starting small, and only offering eight colours to start with (White, Blue, Green, Grey, Lemon, Olive, Pink, Red and Silver), but don’t worry as more colors and styles aren’t far behind.

  • Wall Art
  • Laminating

Printed on a Durst Theta (using Kodak Professional Photo Paper). A two sided hot laminate.

  • Mounted

Printed on a Durst Theta (using Kodak Professional Photo Paper). The print is mounted onto a base material called ‘Gator’ board. It’s by the far the easiest way to put art on your walls – very light, very strong, doesn’t warp and doesn’t ding. Once the print is bonded to the gator, we gloss laminate the front surface, apply a black edging and add a hanger on the back.

  • Posters

They’re printed on durable 180GSM matte stock. These posters are water-proof, which we discovered when James “washed” one in the sink. Although the print survived surprisingly well, we recommend ordering new posters in preference to scrubbing them under a faucet.

  • Framing

Each print is bonded to a foam core base, while the matte is cut on a big digital cutter and then sandwiched into the frame with super clear acrylic ‘glass’. We use conservation grade matte board which is acid free and pH buffered. Frames are crafted from quality timbers in a range of finishes.

A white, off-white or black matte surrounds the print to emphasize the artist’s work and bring the piece to life. Premium ultra-clear perspex in front provides a superior finish and means the piece is lighter and easier for you to move without breaking.

  • Canvas

Printed on Canson Canvas with an invisible UV curing process to protect the finish. Strong, light and they look great. Epson printer and Epson pigment inks ensure a quality product that will look great and last forever.

  • About Gator Board

Much stronger than foamcore, but about the same weight. Rigid polystyrene foam core laminated between two face veneers of resin-impregnated wood fiber for use in displays, photo mounting, and much more. Provides an ideal combination of minimal weight and high load capacity.
