Textile printing is an unusual collective term for printing processes because it groups them together according to the printed material rather than the printing technique. The reason: textiles are typically more flexible, more structured and rarely have a white base colour like paper. They therefore place higher demands on the printing.
One of the techniques developed specifically for textile printing is thermal sublimation printing. Here, the ink is vaporised and penetrates the textile fibres in gaseous form. This produces exceptionally durable prints, but requires special inks and can only be used with certain types of textiles. Less demanding is transfer printing, where the motif is first cut from colour foils and then transferred to the fabric. In this way, smooth surfaces (flex print) but also velvety ones (flock foil print) are possible. The colour quality is high, but only a few colours per print object and no colour shading are possible.
Different Kinds of Textile Printing
As stated above, the most common technique of textile printing is screen printing. Other forms of textile printing techniques include digital printing, rotary printing and block printing, Here at VKF Renzel we focus on screen printing and digital printing for textile printing.
Textile printing offers a large range of possibilities for creating unique patterns and designs on fabrics. This allows designers to be able to experiment freely with a variety of colours, textures, and printing techniques to create fabric that reflects their own idividual style.
Textile printing is equally as important for businesses, because it allows them to express their style and message in a creative, one-of-a-kind way to their customers. It also allows individuals and businesses alike to differentiate themselves from their competitors. If you are looking for textile products to print on as promotional products, choose your design and colours, and create something truly custom and unique to offer your customers.
