New Printing Trends
Just like other electronics, printers are constantly evolving to keep up with the industry. Here are just a couple of the newest printer trends you may or may not have heard of.
3-D printing: 3D printing has taken the world by storm over the last couple years. We now have the capability to create a three dimensional object through printing layers of material on top of each other. Through this technology we have the ability to custom design almost anything and print a 3D model of the object. This has made a huge impact in the medical industry, allowing doctors to now print implants and body parts for patients in need. With this technology we can print anything from prosthetic hands to shoes. While owning a 3D printer may not be reasonable for everyone now, it is definitely a product that we can all benefit from in more ways than one in the very near future. If you can't wait to experiment, find out if there is a 3D printer for public use somewhere in your city.
Digital Printing on Fabric: Digital printers for fabric is a relatively new invention and has allowed the fashion and textile industry to design and create their own fabrics. Using dye-based inks, we can print on a variety of fabrics. Having these capabilities gives textile designers an advantage over each other because they can use their own creativity to create custom one of a kind fabrics.
QR Codes: While digital printing has been around for a little while now, people are coming up with more and more ways to utilize it. One of the most popular ways more and more businesses are using digital printing is by printing QR codes to be added to their marketing efforts. Whether you're adding a QR code to a magazine ad or a direct mail flyer, a QR code is an easy way to give your clients and prospective clients access to more information about your company and the products you provide. In a time where we are accustomed to having instant access to endless information, QR codes have become very popular because of their ease of use and low cost. You don't need a special printer to print a QR code. A high quality digital printer should work just fine.
These are just a couple of the newest trends in the printing industry. Both of which are worth keeping an eye on as we watch digital printing of all kinds continue to grow around the world. Contact Duplicating Products to find out what kind of digital printing solutions we provide.
