Dyneema® Composite and Woven Dyneema® might be the uber fabrics for ultralight or ultra-tough gear, but when it comes to colors, you don't have a lot of options. That is until now...
Introducing Omnicolor for Fabrics with Dyneema® - the first ever print on-demand capability that allows you to source technical Dyneema materials in virtually ANY color.
It works like this. Simply select your Fabric, Size, and Color above. Our team will then digitally print your custom color Fabric with Dyneema® and ship it to your door in just a few days!
Here's a short video showing exactly how to place an order. This was made for our regular Omnicolor fabrics, but the order process is the same for Fabrics with Dyneema.
But what about quality. How do printed Dyneema® colors compare to stock?
Thanks to our proprietary in-house OutdoorINK process, printed colors are made rich, deep, and vibrant - equal to or better than traditional stock colors.
There's a revolution brewing... Whether you're a DIYer or vendor making finished products, it's time to change the color game using printed fabrics with Dyneema®.
IMPORTANT- All printed Woven Melange with Dyneema will have a "heathered" effect due to the mix of polyester and Dyneema fibers. A given solid color printed on these materials will appear lighter in overall shade.
NOTE - You can view a gallery of all 1341 available PANTONE colors HERE. Please note that your monitor and monitor settings can drastically affect how colors appear on screen.

Omnicolor printing on fabrics with Dyneema® is offered in two sizes:
19" x 24" (*not available for all variants)
42" x 54"
Due to the unique nature of the print process for fabrics with Dyneema®, all prints are done non-continuously.
This is an active choice by us to ensure that all printed Dyneema consistently meets the highest levels of quality that we demand for both performance and color.
Size options shown indicate the pre-printed usable area of Dyneema that you will receive. Due to manufacturing, some minor shrinkage (typically less than 2%) may occur in the final printed usable area.
We do not currently offer samples of Omnicolor printed fabrics/materials. However, most printed colors on fabrics with Dyneema® are close in shade to colors printed on similar weight polyester fabrics.
If you're looking to see color samples before purchase, we strongly suggest that you buy an OutdoorINK printed color map. This map is an actual linear yard of fabric with printed swatches of all 1341 PANTONE colors.
Keep in mind that many Dyneema® Composite Fabrics are semi-translucent. This combined with a non-woven, laminate construction can affect color shade.
In general, light to mid tones are very accurate to the same colors printed on woven polyester. Darker tones tend to show up slightly lighter on DCF than on a similar weight polyester.
