Digital Printing in context of textiles refers to a printing method whereby a digital image is printed directly to a fabric, or cloth material. Here, the dye-sublimation printer executes the process of printing through the use of heat in order to transfer the dye on the printing medium. Simply put, once the design is created and finalised, and uploaded on the printer, the process of printing becomes as seamless as that on paper. The digital textile printing is a technique that is quickly picking up, due to its ease of use and other significant benefits, the most important of which are discussed below.
Digital printing, as a process is way faster than the conventional screen printing, due to the considerably fewer number of steps involved. This ensures a greater turnout of the finished product in a given time-frame, thus enhancing both, productivity and profitability. As digital printing enables the print to be carried out directly on the final product, it eliminates the need of the various elements that are a part of the screen printing process, thereby reducing both, tangible waste as well as energy consumed.
With so many positives for digital printing, its use is still not as widespread as the traditional methods of printing primarily because of the per unit cost economics involved in bulk scale productions. In bulk printing requirements traditional printing methods are still preferred because of the cost, however the speed at which technological improvements are introduced in Digital printing soon it would be able to realize its full potential once the costs are competitive.
One of the most over-looked yet significant advantage of the digital printing technique is that the dyes used for this process are easily compatible with the traditional methods of printing, which accentuates the utility of this technique tremendously.
