VANCOUVER, British Columbia, November 26, 2017 (Newswire.com) - The report titled ‘Global Digital Textile Printing Market 2017-2021’ released by Research and Markets, states that the market will show an unprecedented 18.29% CAGR between 2017 and 2021. Printing on synthetic fabrics is a lot cheaper compared to printing on natural fabrics. Polyester is the most eligible synthetic material endorsed by digital printing experts. Priscilla Wilson, Principal Director, Exhibit Express, explains the hows and whys.
“Polyester is preferred for digital textile printing, owing to its high durability, resistance and strength bettered by low shrinkage and colour fastness”, says Wilson. “Being sensitive to heat, polyester can be manipulated effortlessly with high temperature and pressure to create permanent pleats and laser cuts”, she adds.
Polyester is also preferred for large format soft signage or custom display printing. Polyester 210gsm is widely used in wall graphics, textile banners, table throws, flags and tension frame systems frequently used in trade show booths.
Talking about the best method to print on polyester, Wilson says, “Ordinary dyes cannot alter the colour of polyester due to its high stain-resistance. We need disperse dyes to create the expected results. To minimise dye migration, we use a white or grey ink as a base before applying any other colour. The dye-sublimation method of printing reduces wastes.”
“The best thing is that digitally printed sublimated polyester both can be washed and then tumble-dried in a low-temperature setting. This is another reason to choose polyester”, she concludes.
The trade show display printing market will continue to depend on polyester. As more trade fairs are organized, the demand for the fabric will escalate.
