A Textile Designer in the digital printing field transfers a digital image to the surface of a fabric or soft furnishing product, such as a cushion.
The process of transferring the digital image to the material is lengthy and involves several stages.
The Designer takes the digital image and prints it onto paper. The paper is then put through a machine, along with the fabric to be printed onto, and a chemical process ensures the image is transferred to the fabric. The resulting design is both colourfast and fade resistant.
