Learn How to Start Fabric Printing

Fabric printing is a wonderful way to add a unique touch to your home decor. Fabric printing can be used to customize curtains, bedding, pillows and other items. You can even use fabric printing to create t-shirts and other garments that reflect your personality or interests.

Digital Printing

Digital printing is one of the most common methods used to create custom print fabric. It is a process that uses a digital file to custom print cotton fabric and can be used for both small and large scale print runs. Digital printing has many advantages over other types of printing, including flexibility in design options and more consistent results. This type of printing can be done with either heat transfer or dye sublimation processes depending on your project’s needs.

This method works well because it allows you to use an unlimited number of colors in your designs, while still maintaining excellent color quality. For example, if you want every object in your design to have its own unique hue then this would not be possible with screen printing because each color requires its own ink set (and thus cost). Similarly, if you wanted just two objects in different shades then screenprinting would require several passes through the press at different times which could cause issues with registration (overlapping) between colors resulting in poor image quality due to uneven coverage by each layer of ink used when print custom fabric on top each other during production.”

Custom print fabric

Custom printed fabric is a great choice for home decor, crafts and clothing. The printing process allows you to make one-of-a-kind designs that are completely unique.

There are a few different ways to create custom printed fabrics:

  • Heat transfer method – This involves using a heat press machine to transfer an image onto the fabric. The image will be transferred from paper or other materials onto the fabric by pressing it between two pieces of heat press material (usually polyester). You can then wash and dry it with no problems! This method works best on natural fibers like cotton or silk; man-made fibers will not accept ink as easily with this method but may work better with dye sublimation methods below which we’ll discuss next time.
  • Dye sublimation – This involves dying or painting your own design onto the surface using any normal paintbrush set up with acrylic paints (the kind found in craft stores). After painting your design on paper first if desired, place this paper into direct contact against your clothing item waiting until dried before ironing over top of it so that both sides get colored equally well (make sure not too hot though!) Then wash/dry normally afterwards for best results.”


As you can see, there are many ways to print on fabric and they all have their own unique benefits. For example, if you’re looking for a more affordable option that still provides great quality, then digital printing might be the way to go. If you want something that can be used for any type of project without having to worry about color matching or consistency across each piece (like a quilt), then transfer printing may be perfect!
