Ink jet printing onto fabric has many advantages when compared to traditional printing methods. The ability for fine line detail and near infinite number of colors enables a near photographic image on the textile substrate. The greatest benefit however is the freedom from the requirement of a print repeat and the ability to engineer a print design. To engineer a print, a product developer brings the garment marker into a textile design software program and creates the textile design within the marker. This design engineering process requires the collaborative efforts of both a product and textile designer, allowing a better marriage of shape and pattern design. For instance, a panoramic scene could continue across a product, or around a three dimensional form. The textile design once created on a two-dimensional surface, now is manipulated across the shape of the body so that it becomes a three dimensional design.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
