Digital Printing vs. Traditional Methods

How fabric printing methods differ

Rotary printing and screen printing are the common methods used by fabric manufacturers who print high volume orders. Neither process is as flexible as digital printing nor as eco-friendly, but once a design is approved, the colorways determined, the printing screens manufactured and tested, and the machines are cut loose to print, these processes can churn out thousands of yards of a single pattern and colorway in a short period of time. That's where the economies of scale come in that allow these fabrics to be sold for a much lower price per yard.

The challenge with these "mass production" methods is having to invest in thousands of yards of each colorway, which makes re-ordering a few yards unfeasible from a cost and logistics perspective. For the customer, once the inventory sells out, you may never see more. And even if you do, it won't be soon and the color accuracy between one dye lot and the next will be inconsistent. At The Textile District, our digital printing process makes sure every design is calibrated and printed on demand in any quantity you need, on the fabrics you want every time.
