The Garment Printer Gets Faster And Better. The future is now, when it comes to putting any unique image on fabrics or clothing in such a way you never thought possible. Using what is basically classic ink-jet paper printer technology applied to the fabric world currently allows images to go directly from your computer screen to the printer and onto the cloth fabric. While the technology is fantastic, they are somewhat constrained as to what cottons or cotton blends are more appropriate materials to use as darker colors don't have the same effect as lighter colors. However, the world of textile printing is evolving at nearlight speed in what is possible in terms of background fabrics and new potential uses for direct-togarment-printing (DTG), using what is referred to as the digital garment printer. Since about 2004, the industry has seen a rise in the functions and features of the DTG garment printers. Not only have inks been enhanced and become more intensely colorful, colorfast, and versatile, but the resolution of images that is possible and the speed of output in machines have risen massively, making more detailed visuals more vivid and making larger runs more costeffective than ever before. Taken together they are helping the art of textile printing to grow tremendously into ever further new worlds of possibilities. With the increases in capabilities, quality, and speed, devices have become more cost-effective and affordable, as well. Depending on needs and the style of printer sought, a lot of mid-size organizations and companies are currently seeing the financial benefits of bringing the potential for textile printing in-house with an investment in a printer outweighing the initial costs of the apparatus. A modern garment printer basically has increased R.O.I. rates which is more appealing financially than outsourcing previous manufacturing operations. The cost and difficulties of screen printing or other fabric coloration processes have significantly improved. The industry has improved with the recent technological developments that solutions to problems such as 'pre-treating' darker fabrics have changed massively. Some of the down falls involving consistency and quality have been remedied completely with current innovations with adjustments to pressure and volume really impacting the consistency of the sprayed pattern on the materials used. Working with discoveries along these lines, leaders in the industry have been able to optimize improvements and make extraordinary leaps forward in the technical abilities of DTG printers and the final results they can obtain. Further modifications and refinements of the types of ink and ink-delivery systems have led to other technical improvements. Questioned for their novelty are those ink systems that deliver in bags rather than in ink-jet cartridges however their superiority allows the person operating the equipment to see the level of ink remaining properly. Also, they provide the improved ecological effects of less hard plastic waste products than previously existed with the spent ink cartridges. Like with any industry, there is a level of competition where suppliers seek out new and improved processes to create faster and more accurate devices, resulting in a more desirable bottom line. Additional enhancements, further efficiencies and a steady growth in the industry will continue to be witnessed as more and more manufacturing processes are developed. Within the next decade, the garment printer will continue to see advancements where they will become better than ever.
