Important Types of Various Fabric Printing Methods

The process of applying colors to fabric or textile is referred to as textile printing. On treating with colors, the fabric is bonded with the color to defy friction and washing. Many people misunderstand fabric printing with dyeing. In fabric printing multiple colors are applied to different parts of the fabric unlike dyeing where only one color is used to color the garment.
Following are the methods that are undertaken by many famous men's casual shirts manufacturers Mumbai
Pigment Printing: Pigments are special coloring agents that are used in pigment printing of fabrics. It is used to get attractive and beautiful designs on fabrics, which is difficult to attain in dyeing. There are many advantages of fabric printing. It can be used on both synthetic and natural fibers. One of the main attractions that make many manufacturers mainly accept this method is that it is very economical and it can be used to attain great designs.
Procion or Reactive Printing: Procion printing is used to get maximum effect on cellulose-based fibers such as viscose, cotton and linen. It can also be used on silk and wool but the results can vary, as it could be lighter and unpredictable on them. When used in the process, it is advised to use facemask and gloves though the powdered dye is considered non-toxic.
Water based printing: In this type of printing, the inks used for coloring the fabric are water-soluble and uses water as the main medium. It does not mean that the only solvent used here is water but only that water is the major solvent here. One of the main advantages of water-based printing is its economical feasibility. In addition, water-soluble inks have the advantage being one of the best ink schemes for high-speed yardage printing.
Discharge Printing: Also known as, extract printing, in this method of printing a color-removing agent like hydrosulfite or chlorine is used on a dyed fabric by printing to bleach-out a light or white pattern on a colored ground and then a design is applied to the dyed fabric. This type of printing can be used when a manufacturer needs to make opaque and bright colors on dark fabrics. It is best useful when patterns need to be made against dark cotton.
Sublimation Printing: It is a type of printing where an image is applied on specifically coated products or materials based on polyester by using a sublimation ink at desired pressure at required temperature. One of the main advantages of this type of printing is that is the material can be hard-washed as the print has become the part of the material and can resist washing and friction.
Digital Printing: When colors are printed onto any fabric using ink jet based method such type of a printing is referred to as digital printing. Digital printing is carried out direct to smaller garments and promotional wear unlike other traditional methods of printing. Most of the men's printed shirts manufacturers Mumbai make use of this type of printing.
Disperse Printing: The process of printing using a disperse dye is called disperse printing. Disperse dye is almost water-insoluble dye having similarity for multiple fibers which are hydrophobic in nature.
These techniques help many manufacturers get the best desired result on a fabric. Effectiveness coupled with economic advantage help manufacturers choose the best printing method.
Printing is done on tables,flatbed machines and rotary machines. For complicated designs with critical screen joints we need to use rotary machines. All other prints are done on flat bed printing machines. Smaller orders can be done on tables.
Table printing is also very effective for placement prints on garments where the printing is done on a garment part or on a ready garment. These are usually custom prints such as logos and brand names.
