What really is digital printing?
Digital printing is a method of printing where a digital image is reproduced directly on paper, photo paper, canvas, fabric, synthetics, card-stock and other substrates. Digital printing in the commercial world is usually associated with printing with high-volume laser or inkjet printers typically A4 or A3 size outputs-directly from computer to print and/or with large-format printing of posters, banners, etc.
How does digital printing work?
With Digital Printing, images are assembled and readied for print using a complex set of numbers and formulae prior to print. These images are captured from pixels and digitised, to be used to deposit ink/toner and exposed directly on media to replicate the image that you desire to print. Digital printers are either inkjet or toner based.
What is large format printing?
Wide format or large format printing is associated with digital printers that support printing on a rolled media having a width of between 18″ to 100″. Bigger printers with capacities of over 100″ width are referred to as grand format or super wide format digital printers. Hence the term large format printing.
How do large format printers work?
With large format printing, the printers are computer controlled and using the right graphics software and a pre-print rasterization process, the digital image is reproduced on the media by printing tiny droplets of ink in the form of dots via ink nozzles of primarily four color (CMYK), onto a roll of media which is fed incrementally into the printing area of the printer, thus printing on the desired length of the roll from the digitized print file fed by the computer.
Can Digital Printing use Pantone colors to print? or Can you print pantone colors digitally?
With digital printing process, the printed colors may be close but not spot on the colors in the Pantone book. All Digital machines must be calibrated regularly to maintain accurate color. Colors may vary every so slightly depending on the characteristics of the paper or media used to print on. Typically, we have found that the color variance is within an acceptable range. However, if you are really concerned you can always ask your digital printer to run a color proof. This ability of running a one off proof is also a great advantage of using digital printing
How is digital printing accomplished on fabric?
During the printing process, the fabric usually in a roll, is fed into the printers and as with other media, the digitized image is reproduced on the fabric surface by printing thousands of tiny droplets of ink. Heat and or steam is used to cure the ink and finish the process. In some instances, the ink may need to be cured by washing and drying the fabric.
Can you digitally print on Viscose?
Yes, printing on viscose with a digital printer is very much possible. The use of reactive inks when printing on viscose give the best results as is the case when printing on cotton.
