Digital Textile & Fabric Printing

Digital inkjet technology has many benefits for printing on fabric. The high print resolution is remarkable and the creative design opportunities are endless. This means you can eliminate repeats and small run jobs, and customized items can be printed more profitably.

To take advantage of these benefits, first you need the right fabric printing machine. It’s also important to understand that digital printing on fabrics is a multi-step process with many pieces of equipment. ITNH specializes in putting those pieces together to best fit your dye sublimation and direct-to-fabric printing applications and budget.

Dye Sublimation Printers

Dye Sublimation Printers

Dye sublimation is an integral part of fabric printing because it creates the perfect chemistry for printing on polyester materials.

The soft signage, home décor, flag, furniture and fashion markets have seen remarkable growth due to the expanding capabilities of today’s dye sublimation fabric printers and a widening array of available polyesters. Techniques can include transfer printing as well as direct dye sublimation.

 

Dye Sublimation Substrates:

Polyester materials for applications such as soft signage retail and tradeshow graphics, home décor, sports apparel and fashion items.

Direct-to-Fabric Printing

Today’s modern fabric handling systems, along with technical and chemical advancements, continue to push the production capacity in the direct-to-textile printing marketplace.

Direct-to-fabric printing machines are intended for ink chemistries including:

  • Disperse Dye
  • Acid Dye
  • Reactive Dye
  • Textile Pigment

With varying chemistries designed for select textiles, understanding the specific workflows and processes of fabric printing is critical for high-quality print results.

Direct-to-Fabric Substrates:

  • Cotton
  • Silk
  • Nylon
  • Other materials used for home décor, quilting, fashion apparel and additional applications.
Heat Presses

Heat Presses

Whether curing textile pigments and pre-treatments or sublimating disperse dye, heat presses are an essential part of the digital fabric decorating process. Our selection of heat presses includes:

  • Clam Shell Presses
  • Large Format Table Presses
  • Calendar Transfer Presses

 

Clam shell presses are ideal for sampling and can be used for low to moderate volumes at varying sizes. For high-volume scenarios, calendar transfer presses simplify the workflow and increase output.

Fabric Processing Equipment

Automatic pre-treatment machines provide consistent and repeatable solution delivery, ensuring the highest quality prints for your textiles. Steamers are also an essential part of the fixation of fabric dyes, as dry heat will not properly set the inks. Ink types that require steam fixation include acid and reactive dyes.
