For WhichPLM's Expert Board, Debbie McKeegan. A pioneer in digital print, Debbie discusses the explosion of digital print, the integrity of design, and Europe’s textile industry, whilst summarizing the variety of ink sets currently available to us (including which set works best with which product or market), as well as fabrics and print partners.
There’s no doubt that the digital reform of conventional textile print has changed a creative’s workflow forever.
That said, with a whole new set of creative tools and manufacturing options how does a designer create and supply the perfect product and choose the correct print solution?
What’s often overlooked is the product knowledge, commercial discipline and the expectations of both the manufacturer and the end user.
If you’re a pure creative and only produce artwork then delivering a beautiful design utilizing highly versatile software to the manufacturer will be a simple task in today’s world.
Supplying your design in a digital format is a necessity. The integrity of design has returned;
But beyond design, bridging the gap between the creative’s vision and the final product will need all the expertise of a commercial textile designer and a complex knowledge base of a manufacturing industry.
We are a collaborative company and work with designers worldwide. Sharing both design knowledge and our print expertise. Join our worldwide design community and enjoy the freedom professional Digital Print offers for your business.
