Change is a factor in every area of business today. The world of textile printing is no different, and there’s a tranformation happening in the industry as print runs are getting smaller and the demand for customisation is rapidly growing.
Handmade traditional textile printing can “no longer meet the needs of the consumer”.
The handmade industry faces problems such as higher tendencies for error, greater supervision and time required in the process, being manpower-dependent, and the process generally relies on good weather conditions.
However, today, with the dawn of digital textile printing, manufacturers can stay competitive and relevant even in the face of all these problems.
Digital textile printing offers limitless opportunties and increases revenue and image quality, indirectly increasing consumer demand.
Another big plus for digital textile printers is that it’s less impactful on the environment, with less water and waste used, by printing the exact required volume.
With digital textile printing, there are no limits to textile creativity.
Designers can now print intricate designs on demand, through either dye-sublimation or direct to garment printers, with high productivity increasing the profitability of the designers and studios.
Epson manufactures all parts of the printers they sell, which ensures quality and meets all service requirement needs.
Epson also produces their own series of high quality inks which are perfect for textile printing and on all cotton and synthetic blends.
