Textile Printing Techniques

The textile digital printing has made it possible to create high-quality products even for those who wish to order small quantities of items, favoring the process of mass customization, which is still present in various production sectors, from fashion to marketing. Thanks to the most modern textile printing techniques, today it is possible for a printing factory (โรงพิมพ์, which is the term in Thai) to obtain limited quantities of textile products at a reduced cost and in a short time. Photographs, colors, and designs can be transferred to a variety of materials without any particular creative or productive limit.

Printing Techniques

Direct Sublimation Printing

Considered as one of the most sophisticated textile printing techniques, sublimation allows to obtain a reproduction subtle to the touch, keeping the elastic materials resistant to washing and entirely breathable; so it is perfect for the realization of sportswear. Also, due to its resistance to sun and rain, synthetic fabrics made through this process can be used in the communication and marketing sector to create outdoor advertising displays and banners, ideal for fairs and events.

Inkjet Printing

This textile printing technique, also called DTG (Direct to Garment), is used for four-color printing on natural fabrics, such as cotton and silk. It is widely used in the garment sector for the production of t-shirts, polo shirts, and other custom garments in cotton or other natural materials. In particular, the transition from screen-printing textile printing techniques to digital printing allows companies, professionals, and individuals to produce personalized garments at a reasonable price, even using very different designs and colors.

Screen Printing

Screen printing is one of the oldest textile printing techniques and uses screen printing frames, that is, rigid frames on which a porous fabric is placed and tensioned. Today, screen printing is an industrial process that will enable you to produce large quantities of fabric with the same design quickly. On the other hand, it is not suitable for reproducing many different designs in a short time, due to the high cost of the machines and the long production times.
