PRE-TREATED FABRICS FOR DIGITAL INKJET PRINTERS
What Is Digital Textile Printing?
Is the technology that consists of printing your designs on fabric, directly from your computer, with no other additional step. This means that after you are finished creating your designs, and once you have them in repeat, you can print on fabric just like you print on paper or other medias using a RIP software. Some ink types may require a post treatment such as steaming or heat setting the print.
The Process Needed
The only requirement is that the fabrics to use have to be pre-treated to hold the ink better, and achieve a wider color gamut and quality output. The pre-treatment of the fabric allows you to obtain a wider range of colors and thus an optimized colormatching. DigiFab® has developed various types of treatments, according to the fabrics and the inks to be used.
Uses and Advantages
The concept of digital printing on fabrics has opened new opportunities for designers, merchandisers, production and art departments, salespersons, etc. You can print as little as a small piece of fabric, or as much as a large roll. You can make garments, sportswear, apparell, signs, banners, flags, sample strike-off, samples for your sales reps, graphic or art reproductions, interior design fabrics, and so much more. The possibilities are so many, since so many industries and products involve some type of fabric in at least one of their products. With digital textile printing you do not need to create screens to print your fabrics, which not only is time saving, but also cost effective.

Science in and of it's self.
It seems like these printing machines would be a game changer in that area too. Fibers like glass, cotton or fabric were going to give amazing results. I don't know if that ever happened but I do know you can get an automatic cut out machine at the hobby shop.
