Our digital print facility is located in an annex to the School’s main CAD lab on the same floor of the mill as our screen printing workshop. The facility includes two Mimaki Textile Jet printers (Tx-1600S and Tx2-1600). Both printers use reactive dyes to print on pre-treated 160cm wide fabric (of which we maintain stock). All printed fabrics are finished (fixed) to a professional standard using the Star Steamer in the same building.
In addition to the two ‘production’ machines used by the majority of our print designers we also have an ink jet printer (modified for textile use) enabling the testing and development of new dyes and inks for digital printers.
