What Machines Print on Fabric

The best part about this industry is that there are so many different options for printing on fabric. Whether you want to print a few T-shirts or you’re looking to create custom apparel for an entire sports team, there’s a machine out there that will make it easy. So, what is the hottest new trend in digital printing? Digital textile printers are becoming more popular than ever before because they can print small orders in as little time as it takes to run one shirt through an inkjet printer.

Digital Printing

Digital printing is the fastest growing, most cost effective and environmentally friendly printing method. It’s also the most versatile.

Digital printing is a full color digital process that uses a large format printer to print directly onto fabric. There are no limitations to size or shape, so you can create anything from customized clothing and home décor to banners, flags and signs – even vehicle wraps!

With digital printing you can use any image or design you want for your next project – including photos and logos!

Inkjet Printing

Inkjet printing is one of the most popular electronic printing technologies. It works by ejecting droplets of ink onto a surface using a print head containing one or more nozzles. The ink used in this process is called the inkjet cartridge, which consists of an ink supply and a custom printed cotton fabric head that moves relative to the paper being printed on (or other substrate). The relative movement of these two components produces an image on paper with each pass.

Screen Printing

Screen printing is the oldest method of printing on fabric. It’s a low-tech process that requires a lot of hard work and attention to detail.

The first step is to make a screen from a fine mesh stretched across a frame. The mesh can be linen, silk or nylon depending on the design you want to create. Ink is applied through the mesh, which causes it to stick where there are no openings in the mesh (i.e., where there are holes).

When your design has been transferred onto your print custom fabric, you place it underneath your screen so that when you press down on top with even pressure, only ink will pass through those areas with openings while leaving all other areas untouched by ink (this is why we call our designs “prints”).


If you’re starting from scratch as a designer and have no experience creating fabrics, it can be intimidating. But don’t worry! We’ve got some tips for you to make sure your designs are ready for print.
