Our printing partners use the latest technology to generate the least possible waste and save energy and water.
Most of the printers our printing partners use are energy efficient – they use less electricity, water, and chemicals than those used in the rest of the industry.
For direct-to-garment printing products, Kornit’s NeoPigment and water-based inks are used that are Oeko-Tex ™ certified, which means they are safe to use on children’s clothing and reduce environmental waste. These inks offer a high AATCC (4) rating for wash-fast color.
Mimaki Dye Sublimation Ink Sb411 and Sawgrass SubliJet HD are also used for sublimation products. Both inks feature Oeko-Tex ™. Sawgrass SubliJet HD ink is also used in mugs.
For sublimation products, MYSUBLI-E Sublimation Transfer ink is used.
Mimaki UV Inkjet Ink Lus 120 is used for mobile phone cases. This ink is GREENGUARD Gold Certified, which means it meets Gold Certification for creating materials, finishes, and accessories.
For posters, Epson UltraChrome GS3 ink is used, which is also GREENGUARD Gold certified.
For products other than clothing, stickers, and canvas, EPSON SC80610 / 80600 ink is used.
Despite our efforts, we are aware that we still have a lot to learn and do to improve the sustainability of our production process.
The road to sustainability is long, but with every step we take, no matter how big or small, we move forward. We set realistic and measurable goals for ourselves as we look to the future to find new ways to improve.
We know that sustainability is essential, and it is motivating to see that our customers also join us in order to be more respectful of the environment.
Sustainable fashion is the future! That is why EQUUS AREA ® is working to join this trend, without sacrificing quality!.
We only generate our products once we receive an order, avoiding the generation of textile waste derived from overproduction.
Each product in our catalog is made on-demand. Once you place your order, we produce it specifically for you, which means that, once you place your order, we will start working to get it to you, which is why perhaps the delivery time is somewhat more than that acquired in other similar stores.
But it is precisely making the product on-demand that allows us to avoid overproduction and unnecessary waste of fabrics.
In this way, we join the movement for a more sustainable fashion.
Each product in our catalog is made on-demand.
Once you place your order, we produce it specifically for you, for that reason we need some time to manage your orders: manufacture, package, and ship them.
The management and manufacturing times for clothing items range are from 2 to 7 business days. The rest of the products are between 2 and 5 days.
And generally, all products are shipped in an average of 4 working days, depending on the selected rate (overnight, express or standard) and the destination.
In any case, shipments will be tracked, with the tracking number that is received by e-mail with the confirmation of each order.
