Conventional -or traditional- textile printing used to be done with screen printers. Today, conventional printing is mainly done with rotary printing machines, although flat screens are in still in used. The advantage of this technology is the high production speed, which reduces printing cost and allows for long print runs. On the other hand, designs are restricted by screen size and producing the scenes takes time and is cost intensive. Each print paste contains a composition of dyes, thickeners and auxiliaries that should be prepared separately. This is the reason why conventional textile printing is often used for home textiles like curtains, bed linen, and other products that have recurring colour patterns and long printing runs.
