Abstract:

In this work, a collection of decorative textiles for home furnishing was designed on a CAD CAM system, printed with an ink-jet printer, and transferred into production using rotary screen printing. The basic materials used were linen woven fabric and reactive dyes. Colorimetric measurements were carried out for the samples printed with both printing procedures. The reflectance values, CIELAB colour values and ΔE* colour difference values were obtained and compared using two spectrophotometers. The colour fastness of the printed fabrics to washing, rubbing and artificial light was determined according to ISO standards. The research shows that an ink-jet printed collection can be transferred to rotary screen printing. The implementation of an ink-jet printing system in a traditional production process is recommendable for a traditional printer, because the sample collection can be prepared with significant savings in costs and faster turn-around.
