Duplex Printing


  • Innovative printing two sides with pigment dyes
  • Restrictions involved — ONLY a 1 or 2 color design will work and art must be reviewed by our art department to see if it is “Duplex Printable.”
  • Style # 21DCT
  • 10,000 piece minimum

The process is a lost art on fabrics of today. The fabric is printed on both sides in Duplex Printing. Thus in this method a clear outline is produced on both sides of the fabric. The design is applied so skillfully by the printing cylinders that the result may be mistaken for a woven design.

We are the only domestic supplier of Duplex Printing. No one else in the industry offers this!

Innovative specialty printing only offered by Caro-Line.

We start with white cloth and print both sides of the material – white omits.

We can print a second color on some designs such as a paisley black and white design; however, all art must be reviewed by our graphics dept. to make sure your design is duplex printable.   This process gives you a 2 sided print bandanna like the traditional paisley bandannas you would see at Retail.

10,000 Bandannas is our absolute minimum on duplex printing.

If time allows, we will send a free pre-production sample for approval by your client, otherwise we will provide a free eproof for approval. Production time starts when the per-production sample or eproof is approved.

There are no screen or set-up charges on a duplex  order. However, if the design changes after the eproof or pre-production sample has been produced, will result in a screen charge of $225 net per screen.   NOTE:   Each bandanna requires 2 screens one for the front and one for the back.   An order of Red with white omit would require 2 screens.   If order is cancelled after pre pro sample is run then customer will be charged for all screens and a pre pro sample.  Costs  Screens:  $225  net per color    Pre Pro:   $125 for 1-color and $25 per color if multi color design.

Production time on most duplex orders is 15 – 20 working days. We will confirm production at the time of your order. In addition, we do offer rush service with a 20% rush charge.

Art charges of one hour or less will be invoiced and processed without distributor approval and no delay in production. Production cannot begin until all art issues/charges have been resolved and art has been approved by Bandanna Promotions (BP). A delay in providing useable artwork will affect your ship date. Artwork will be sized to maximum imprint size unless specified.





Images created in vector format, such as Adobe Illustrator, are preferred. If you do not have vector art you may send raster art, but it must be at least 300 dpi and at the full size of your imprint. Art charges will apply to convert raster to vector art. Do not send in password locked files.

Requirements: Include all files that have been placed, embedded, nested, or imported in your final layout. Convert all fonts to curves or outlines. Adobe Illustrator, Freehand and CorelDraw give you this option.

Caro-Line offers a number of standard borders which you can utilize to dress up your bandanna design.   No charge for using these borders. Many of our borders can be done as a multi-color imprint. If your logo and the border are the same color, there is no additional cost. If, however, you put your border in one color and your logo in another, it will be priced as a two-color imprint.  Add these borders to any of our blank Bandannas, Triangles and Hankies.
