Patterning is easily achievable with flocking. Flock adhesives can be applied in intricate patterns using engraved rolls or rotary screens. The wonderful texture or pile gained through flocking can be embossed or etched using compressed air and other techniques.
Complex designs can be perfectly integrated with the sumptuous texture of flock. It is now possible to create double-flocked effects which yield a sculptured or pile look. A pattern is screen printed using adhesive onto a pre-flocked substrate. This design is then flocked providing a wonderful relief effect. Multicolored patterns can be applied to flocked surfaces using wet process or sublistatic printing.
