Printing solution for Digital fabric printing
Simply speaking, digital fabric printing is the act of printing digital files onto fabrics. To achieve superior printing quality results, it is closely related with printing element, such as inks. The below diagram shows 4 basic ink types and the fabrics that they could print on. We can know that each works on specific fabric types and being best suited to particular purposes and offering varying qualities of print.
There are 2 main successful digital fabric printing methods:
*Dye sublimation printing
*Direct to textile printing
How does dye sublimation printing works?

How does direct to textile printing works?
- Step 1 – Pre-Treatment
- Step 2 – Prepare Your Design
- Step 3 – Printing
- Step 4: Drying
- Step 5: Post-treatment
Something you need pay attention to direct to textile printing:
Every new pre-treated textile need print tested and the printer is calibrated to the number of ink that textile can hold to obtain a crisp, bright print. Too much ink and a print will not be crisp, too little and the color accuracy may be lost. The average shrinkage is calculated and then the textile is given a ‘profile’ which the printer uses each time it prints this particular textile.
When your textile is placed on the printer, the ink head is set to the correct height for the fabric; there are only a few millimeter clearances over the fabric. This head height is important not least to protect the ink heads but it also influences the crispness of the printing.
