The list of printed textiles ranges from material for blinds and sunshades, to sports bags, racket sleeves, T-shirts, and casual clothing. Whether industrial products or casual wear, in textile printing there are hardly no limits to ideas, patterns, and design.
The future is direct printing: rather than additional sewn-in labels, manufacturers are increasingly choosing to print brand names, size, and care instructions directly onto the inside of clothing. Pad printing is the ideal method for this application as it is ressource-efficient and minimises waste.
