and the main advantage of digital printing is the ability to do very small runs of each design – Custom Design – as there are no screens to prepare. The inkjet printing technology used in digital printing was first patented in 1968. It was only in the 1990s that inkjet printers became widely available for paper printing applications. Thankfully, technology has continued to develop, and there are now many specialized wide-format printers that can handle a variety of substrates; everything from vinyl to canvas and paper, and yes, fabric.
Specially Formulated Inks
The inks used in digital fabric printing are formulated specifically for each type of fiber (silk, cotton, nylon, polyester, etc.). Throughout the printing process, the fabric is fed though the printer using rollers. Ink is applied to the surface in the form of thousands of tiny droplets. The fabric is then finished using heat or steam to cure the ink, with some inks also requiring washing and drying.
Designs are created digitally, and can be designed with nearly any type of graphic design software. Alternatively, existing artwork or even photographs can be scanned and then digitally manipulated to make a beautiful and memorable pattern. Designs are usually created as a seamless pattern that is repeated across the fabric. However, it is possible to create a design that fills an entire yard without repeating any part of the design.
