An analogue-to-digital transformation is currently taking place in the textiles and clothing market. Alongside conventional textile printing processes, digital printing is growing fast.

This is why Mimaki now offers one complete solution for the textile print workflow. By Bert Benckhuysen, Senior Product Manager at Mimaki EMEA

The essence of the technology is clear, but what can you actually use it for? Focusing on a few inspiring examples of innovative digital print applications has the ability to drive a revolution in the field of interior decoration. Here are five tips to get you started.
