When designing fabrics, there are a number of methods that can be used, and digital printing is one of them. Imagine having 2 t-shirts of the same design, color and material. On a t-shirt, the print appears to be on top of the fabric and has a somewhat waxy texture. On the other t-shirt, the design seems to fit seamlessly into the fabric, with no difference between the printed area and the rest of the t-shirt. What caused this apparent difference? Digital printing on fabric.
digital printed fabric is the process of adding beautiful designs to fabric using an inkjet printer. While this process is usually more expensive than other design options, it does produce high-quality designs that can also be used in custom garments. Using digitally printed fabrics will ensure detailed designs and variety of colors.
The first step in creating a design, which is then transferred to digital printing on fabric. There are two most common methods;
1. Use a graphic design program - For this method, the design must be converted to TIFF (Tagged Image File Format). It greatly reduces the risk of losing your work, and it's also best for larger designs.
2. Use original handcrafted art - designs must be scanned and then converted to digital format for easy transfer.
To be able to repeat the design multiple times on the fabric, a seamless design is recommended.
Before the fabric is placed in the printer, it must first be treated with various solutions to make it more susceptible to dyes and enhance its ability to absorb color. Once the process is complete, the fabric is now ready to transfer the design onto!
Rollers are used to feed printed fabrics into printers, which are usually calibrated to produce only the right amount of ink each can hold. After setting the correct fabric height on the ink head, the image is transferred as tiny ink droplets. It is important to note that the ink used depends on the type of printed fabric used.
This is the final step and helps ensure that the ink meshes with the printed fabric more perfectly, with high color fastness, allowing the design to hold for longer. It also prevents shrinkage and keeps the size of the design the same. Finishing depends on the type of fabric used, eg cotton, nylon, silk, etc. It can be done using pressure, steam, dry heat, and sometimes a combination of the two methods. It is then washed to remove excess ink, then dried and ironed for packaging before being distributed for sale.
