Textile printing is the process of applying colour and design to a fabric. It involves dyeing certain parts of cloth using one or more colours to create a sharply defined pattern. The colourants used contain dyes thickened to prevent the colour from spreading by capillary attraction beyond the limits of the pattern or design.
Textile printing can be achieved using a variety of printing processes including: screen printing, digital textile printing, and pad printing.
The quality of digital textile printing has increased dramatically over the past few years, making it a more viable application for printers to adopt as a new revenue stream.
Digital textile printing can produce a vast array of products from fashion clothing to interior décor.
