Textile Printing is the localized or discontinuous application of dyes or pigments to produce various designs or motifs on the fabric. Printing is done on fabric in dry condition.


Dyeing is a process of applying color in textile materials by adding dyes on its chemical structure.

Difference between Textile Dyeing and Printing

1.Dyeing is a process of applying color to whole fabric by changing physical of chemical structure.Different types of colors are used on textile goods to make a particular design.
2.Dyeing is performed in wet condition.Printing is performed in dry condition.
3.For dyeing, no design is needed.For printing, specific design is needed.
4.Color is applied in form of solution.Color is applied in form of high density paste.
5.Dyeing process can be done on Fibre, Yarn and Fabrics.Printing can only be used on Fabric.
6.Thickener is not used in this process.Thickener is used.
7.Dyeing solution has low density.Printing paste has high density.
8.Steaming and curing is not required after dyeing process.Steaming and curing is required after printing process.
