Digital fabric printing involves printing digital files onto the fabric. The most commonly used printing fabrics for digital content include; cotton, linen, bamboo and silk. There are multiple types of Digital fabric printing ink machines that use advanced technologies to work on specific fabrics that suit particular purposes and that offer varying print qualities. Interestingly, the fabric type determines the durability of the final printed design product as well as its price on the market.



The first thing to check while choosing a digital fabric printer is its ability to function as expected. The digital printer should be designed to accommodate various techniques and should be compatible to use across multiple fabrics. Additionally, the digital printer should be in a position to print different design effects ensuring that their detail is precise and its color is vivid. Moreover, the printer should print clear patterns within the speed they are set which it makes possible to meet high order sizes. Faulty printers should be avoided as they may cost the owner high in maintenance costs yet deliver below par.


A digital fabric printer should be flexible in how it alternates among various techniques to suit the different products. Moreover, the digital fabric printer can achieve high order sizes at very small time periods which ensure that the output per piece increases. Additionally, the digital printer maximizes income to the owner as they most operate at a flat rate despite the varied number of orders or pieces sought. The digital fabric printer’s screen is made to allow it to be used for infinite times which mean that as outputs increase the price per unit decreases considerably.


It is wise to choose a digital fabric printer that is compatible with multiple fabrics. This will ensure that one can maximize the output sought with ease. Moreover, the material used should enhance the design effects, and patterns sought and ensure that the ink used is well spread and does not spoil the fabric used.
