One of the printing application which has rapidly adopted digital printing is the printing of Sarees. Looking at the growing Indian population & need for new designs this industry will continue to be a major component of Digital Textile Printing in India.

- Accurate feedback & documentation from the end user to the technology suppliers to resolve issues efficiently.
- Investment of time by end user to train their print technicians/masters
- Timely follow up of maintenance schedule by end user and use of approved spares, inks to avoid downtime
- Continous interaction between suppliers & end users
