Textile printing machines Italy

Decorated with complex, vivid patterns, strips of smooth silk approximately one meter in width emerge rapidly from the printer. Jointly developed by Epson and Italy's Robustelli, the Monna Lisa inkjet textile printer uses a type of staining technique to print designs onto fabrics. These fabrics are processed into items such as clothing, ties and scarfs by apparel makers, and are sold to customers.

Epson regards textiles as a growth business and is bolstering its efforts around its inkjet textile printer.

The Monna Lisa inkjet textile printer and apparel created using digital techniques. Among others, the printer is capable of printing directly onto cotton, linen, wool, nylon and polyester.

Epson's belief in the potential of textile printing is based around a shift in the industry from analog to digital techniques. While traditional analog printing techniques require plates to be pressed against the fabric, digital techniques mean that fabric can be printed out without the need for expensive plates. This ensures that digital textile printing can be achieved at lower cost and in shorter times.

Epson first entered this market back in 2003 when it jointly developed with Robustelli, a leading Italian manufacturer of printing machines, a digital textile printer based on Epson's proprietary Micro Piezo inkjet technology

Epson's entry and expansion into commercial and industrial printing

The Monna Lisa, which is sold under the Robustelli brand, is now driving the digital textile industry in Italy. According to Epson's research, more than 60% of the items printed on high-productivity textile printers in Italy in 2010 were printed on the Monna Lisa. With the delicate color gradations and vivid reproduction of colors you'd expect from inkjet, the Monna Lisa answers the needs of luxury fashion brands and their strict quality standards. This, combined with exceptional productivity of approximately 100 m2 an hour, has ensured that the textile printer has earned high praise from fashion industry insiders.

The Italian textile printing industry has succeeded in reviving itself by concentrating on producing high quality items using digital textile printing. On the other hand, Japanese textile printers have suffered as business has gone overseas to China and other countries, with the volume of textiles printed in Japan declining from more than 300 million m2 printed in 2005 to 200 million m2 in 2010. The reluctance of the industry to adopt digital techniques and the lack of a suitable digital business model has meant that digital textile printing only accounts for a small percentage of the market.

My friend bought a simple screen printing machine some time ago and has not made back his investment.
The problem is, actual screen printing shops have the more sophisticated presses and can work in volume better than a little guy, so even if you get a few small sample orders once they go to full production they probably will not need your services.
Plus the most savvy shirt makers source their screen printers on the internet, and I'm not just talking about Cafe Press--when my bro needed cool promo t-shirts he found a printer that could do gold metallic and used American Apparel t's in really cool cuts that were super popular among his indie fans
