Digital Printing Has Arrived!

Flying Sweetly fabrics

(designed by Kim Gann for P&B Textiles)


Recent Press Release from P & B Textiles:

At P & B we are embracing the most cutting-edge printing technology and creating a new brand called NEXT GENERATION.

Until recently, this level of detail and the multitude of colors were not possible in traditional screen printing.  With the introduction of digital printing, the possibilities are limitless, with no fading, shrinking or variation between printings.

Read on to learn more!


Digital printing has no boundaries.

Why?

It is printed from a computer onto a wide format print bed.


Traditional printing required the use of screens that were cut for each color; generally the maximum was 18 colors per print.

In addition, the screens had a maximum width for the repeat – generally 24.”

Digital printing has no screens, and allows for more detail and endless colors.

Digital printing means there are no size restrictions – one bolt of fabric could potentially have an endless pattern with no repeat!

Other advantages to the process include:   No color and quality change from print lot to print lot and no running or bleeding


Will the fabric feel different?

The hand of a fabric depends on the base (greige) goods, and the finish that is added after printing.

All digitally printed fabrics are printed with the same dyes we print with traditionally, and finished through heat, steam or both.

The type of printing will not affect how the fabric feels.


Is digital printing going to be used all the time in the future?

Probably not.

It is a more costly process, so it isn’t warranted for simple designs and patterns.

The main advantages will impact complicated and detailed patterns, large repeats, and prints with dozens of colors.

Traditional printing will most likely be around for a long time, but digital printing opens up a whole new creative world of possibilities.
