One of the fastest growing segments of the print industry is textile and fabric printing with the market trending upward for customized décor and apparel.
Customized items such as bags, pillow cases, drinkware and apparel items for the sports and fashion industries represent the biggest, most exciting printing opportunities in this area. The line of Epson SureColor F-Series printers is designed specifically for this growing and lucrative market.
