There are two types of digital printing: digital direct printing and digital thermal transfer printing. The former mainly refers to printing the actual patterns on various materials through a digital printer; the latter requires printing on special paper in advance. The pattern is then transferred to sportswear, underwear and other clothing by means of thermal transfer. The emergence of digital printing technology has given the textile printing and dyeing industry a new concept. The advanced production principles and methods of this technology provide good development opportunities for textile printing and dyeing.
Advantages of digital printing technology:
1. Promote rapid response to apparel fabric printing
Digital printing technology has the advantages of faster response speed and higher printing quality, which can meet the requirements of refined clothing such as advanced customization and stage costumes. By adopting digital printing technology, the printing time of refined clothing can be effectively reduced. For example, in the process of digital printing proofing, first, clarify the clothing renderings, and then select the appropriate fabrics according to the patterns. With the advent of digital printing technology, we only need to use digital printing color management software to save the patterns well, and the computer can complete the color separation work, which is timely and convenient, and the clothing can be produced in a short time.
2. The appearance of clothing has been diversified
The current clothing creation is mostly based on fashion and innovation. Although clothing designers are actively creating new patterns and fabric processing methods, due to the limitations of the applied printing technology, it is difficult to present the patterns with quality and quantity. With the emergence of digital printing technology, this defect has been effectively alleviated, and innovative textures such as neon texture and simulation texture of clothing have been realized, and the decorative effect of clothing has been fully highlighted.
3. Diversified clothing creation methods
In order to ensure the comfort of wearing clothing, designers often control the thickness of clothing fabrics and their combination methods during the design process, so that designers cannot realize the innovation of clothing fabrics. After adopting digital printing technology, designers have more creativity in clothing fabrics. At the same time, they organically combine digital printing with other fabric processing to give clothing fabrics a new style and provide more creative ways for clothing fabrics.
