Vital Stats

How does it work?

Digital textile printing typically uses inkjet technology to print colors onto fabric. The fabric is fed through the printer, which sprays the dye onto the textile with tiny droplets. The final step is fixing the fabric, a process that ensures the permanency of the design.

Sustainability benefits

Digital textile printing involves lesser power and water consumption as compared to conventional printing. As well as it uses significantly less ink and minimizes waste, while compared to screen printing, the dominant form of textile printing currently.
