With the development of direct to textile printing, more and more people know this industrial. If you’re looking to enter the direct to textile printing market,you must know what is direct to textile printing.
Different to sublimation transfer printing, direct to textile printing don’t need the sublimation paper, the printed fabrics need to be run through a calendar — built into the printer or as a separate unit — for the sublimation process to fix the dye to the fabric. Direct-to-fabric dye-sublimation also requires pretreated polyester fabrics.
Many people will ask me that which one is better, sublimation transfer printing or direct to textile printing? In my opinion, i don't think you can compare the two. Choose which one usually depends on customers’ requirement. If you only print on polyester , then sublimation printing is OK. If you want to print on other materials like flags, banners or other materials , you can choose direct to fabric printer.
