Can polyester be used as the material to cover absorption panels? Does polyester absorb or reflect sound? This printer only prints on polyester, because they mainly print on T-Shirts but can print items/photos as large as 2'X4', but only on polyester.
It doesn't really mean anything "polyester", they have 100s ways to put the fabric together (Performance knit is polyester, so is Satin, Performance Piqué, Chiffon, Fleece...) It can be thick, thin, breathable or no...
Also, you need to know what type of print method they use... Direct Printing, transfer, dying method, ... it's very important, you cannot use a basic transfer, or "sticker" printing method... you need some type of dying process, where the color, molecule will bound with the fiber...
Usually transfer to tshirt method doesn't work for Acoustic fabric, because they cover the fabric with the design, they add a layer.
You need to make sure the color, sharpness or other are "good".
Best advise would be to get some samples.
What is the name of the company you found?
