Roland DG Products for Fashion ApparelDigital dye-sublimation transfer is increasingly used by high-end fashion brands for short-run and limited edition production. If you are currently using analogue methods to produce fabric for fashion and other textile applications, Roland DG’s digital textile print technology offers the significant benefits of flexibility, cost and time efficiency.
Low Fixed Costs
Whether you’re printing a single garment or 500 linear metres of fabric, with digital dye-sublimation the set up costs are the same, and they’re low. It’s easy to predict costs and offer a competitive price, no matter how small the run.
Dye-sublimation transfer print production offers significantly reduced set up times compared to traditional methods of production so it’s quick and easy to do one-offs, sampling or limited editions. For fast responses to customer demands and the ability to offer quick turnaround production.
With digital dye-sublimation transfer printing the process is extremely streamlined – you simply print and press and the garment is ready to be sewn – no complicated fixing processes.
Flexibility of output
Choice of Fabrics
Polyester is typically used in digital dye-sublimation transfer printing, but you’re not limited to 100% polyester. There are incredible fabrics to choose from which feel far from synthetic, including glossy satins for blouses, dresses and ties and durable, thick canvases for items such as bags, belts and luggage.
Vibrant print and a wide colour gamut
Roland DG’s Texart dye-sublimation ink is available in 10 colours, including Orange and Violet, as well as Fluorescent Yellow and Pink, to deliver the widest colour pallet possible.
The sharpness and clarity of prints and high quality photographic imagery make digital sublimation the perfect choice for many types of apparel.
Eliminating the use of screens or pads and with no need to refill ink bottles or decant into containers, Roland DG delivers ‘clean hands’ technology. Our inks are supplied in airtight cartridges and pouches to provide clean usage, and easy and safe printing.
