When it comes to printing fabrics and materials, rotary screen printing used to be considered the best option on the market. The disadvantage of this type of printing is that screens need to be prepared and a general run could cost a great deal of money. As a result, only lengthy and large printing tasks are ideal for this type of print. With the introduction of digital fabric printing in recent years, all of this has changed. Digital fabric printing allows for short runs and smaller print projects at a most affordable rate. Why is this? There are no screens to prepare, so the cost of running such a printer is far less than other printer types.
During the process of digital fabric printing, the correct type of ink will need to be selected for each type of fabric or fibre being used. This is vitally important. You will find that different digital inks are used for silk, cotton, polyester, nylon and so on. The digital fabric printing process involves the material being fed through a printer using rollers. The ink is applied to the fabric’s surface in the form of tiny droplets, which are then cured to the fabric by means of heat and sometimes steam.
Such a printing process is ideal for any home décor projects or display and advertising projects, as the artwork can be quite easily created in standard graphic design programs, such as Photoshop or Illustrator. With the right setup and design, the printed result will be vibrant and aesthetically appealing.
