Understanding digital printing

Sungmin Enterprise is equipped with a ONE-STOP DIGITAL PRINTING SYSTEM.

Digital printing is:

The printing method in which fabric is printed with ink and a printer instead of traditional screen printing. This technology allows us to print photos or images on the material requested by customers without any limit of color, size or degree.

Advantages of a digital printer

  • No limit of colors or repeats
  • Covers all sizes from small to large
  • Shortens the time for sample delivery
  • Reduces the cost of design development
  • Eco-friendly production
  • Capable of any expression of design
  • Facilitates data storage

Difference from traditional printing

Analogue Printing
Original design → Image layout → Color separation and tracing → Platemaking → Sample matching → Sample printing (strike off) → Volume matching → Plate preparation → Color check → Volume printing → Disposal of sample residual → Plate washing and storage → Post production and testing → 1.5 ~ 2 months
Digital printing
Pre production → Original design → Check for profile and color → Sample printing → Volume printing → Post production and testing → 3 days ~ 1 month

Digital printing technology

Although Inkjet digital printing may be regarded as simple, it is high technology in that it requires the six parts shown below to work together in precision in order to produce complete goods.

One single problem in any one of these six parts might lead to possible defects in the product and thus leave one behind in the market. We, at Sungmin, equip ourselves with all the six essential parts to provide you with a ONE-STOP DIGITAL PRINTING SYSTEM.
