Solvent Ink

Written October 16, 2019

Solvent inks are acceptable for textile printing for specific uses. The nature of the ink makes these items for display only, not wearable or for use in furniture fabrics. Since the ink sits on the surface of the fabric, there is greater chance of abrasion and scuffing of the image. Solvent inks are also used for manufacturing of temporary carpets for custom floor displays. Most any solvent-based printer can print textiles that are compatible with solvent-based ink systems. Some textiles have coatings that help to control dot spread when printing.
