Sayedur Rahman, General Manager (operation), Unifill Group, shared, “Now buyers are looking for variety in designs, they don’t want to take single design clothing much. Two years ago, as per as M&S buyer requirements, we added more colors in AOP design to get digital printing impression in all over printing machine by adopting pressure and other relevant technology.”

Unifill Group has 12-color two printing machines with knit fabric printing capacity of 8-20 ton per day and woven fabric printing capacity of 60-80 yards per day.
It is creating new value and adding business opportunities for fabric printers and this development is very positive for the future digital printing industry as they offer different choices for the end users. Digital printing can satisfy the customers demand without increasing cost and waste.
However, digital printing is expensive, but some forward-looking Bangladeshi companies have started making the digital printing to fulfill the customers’ demands.
