Abstract: This article features a useful diagram in figure 1 that illustrates better than words how digital ink-jet printing shortens design to production time. Two flow diagrams show how a ten-week (or more) cycle can be shortened by a factor of ten using digital design techniques. The fashion cycle now dictates the market for textile design and production and the introduction explains that as many as six changes annually are now common. This regime imposes requirements on the printing of textile products in which speed is of the essence in most, if not all, operations. Digital ink-jet printing, despite its manifest advantages in many areas, still suffers from low production speed, the low availability of fast dyes and small colour cartridge sizes. Significant preparation of fabric is also needed for digital ink-jet printing. The technology and its components, its use in current applications and its main advantages are clearly listed here, as is the need for further development.
