I am looking for a printer that prints on Lycra material (This is like swimwear material and also sportswear material). Does someone maybe know this type of printer? Where I can find it and what is the name of this printer? Please help :-)
I think the usual way to print that kind of material is screen printing.
The inks used, should be stretchy. I don't have experience in screen printing Lycra, but I believe you can mix an additive to plastisol inks to make them more stretchable.
If you are looking for a machine you could start looking for screen printing equipment
I know there are printers that can print directly on the material using screenprint inks. As far as I know it is quite expensive and usually for prototypes and one-offs.
