Printing to fabric is not like printing on the paper in your printer at home. There are a variety of fabrics to consider: natural or synthetic, woven or knit, etc., each responding differently to the dyes, chemicals and processes that take place. There are also a variety of dyes and treatments, before and after the printing, all geared to provide the desired colors and designs in the finished goods, but each with numerous and different properties, variations, uses, constraints and effects. This is where our expertise at CADFAB will help you reach your design and production objectives.

Why Digital Print?
Traditional production fabric printing by print mills is an established process. However, it is cost effective only for larger yardage, it is not economically viable for sampling and shortruns. The colors are limited, and it has other limitations due to the process itself. With the advances in computing and printing technologies in general, Digital Fabric Printing now offers flexible alternative for production printing as well as fast affordable sampling to test ideas and review products before committing to production. This well serves industries and projects requiring shorter or customized printing runs, such as needed by the movie industry for example, and agility to respond rapidly to market trends or demands for the apparel and similar industries.
In a nutshell, the benefits of Digital Fabric Printing are unlimited color, no size restrictions, fast turnaround, and supporting small to large quantities.
CADFab features two primary divisions:
Art Studio Services
The art studio at CADFAB provides our clients with the expertise needed either to take an existing physical or digital artwork through the process of printing, or with the help of inspiration and ideas to bring to life new designs for any project. After the inception, the art studio will both edit and manipulate the artwork to perfectly suit the needs of the customer and the requirement of the process so that printed results are true to the design objectives. The process concludes with preparing the designs for production and will vary according to the market needs, the type of fabric, and other fun stuff. The art studio is skilled to provide the customers complete solutions from the first design conception to the final production.
Digital Print Studio
CADFAB uses over 20 different wide format printers for both sampling and production runs. By using these printers and different dyes including reactive, disperse, acid, and pigments, CADFAB has the ability to print on the most desired substrates and fabrics.
