This paper reports the evaluation of textile digital printing including our experimental observations in production and this paper encloses the analysis of innovations and unease features of digital printing industry also. Digital printing can make apperal and home textile pattern design more attractive. However, the application of digital printing contains some constrains. Also the application of traditional printing contains some constrains. Technology rapidly improves today so those improvements better the digital printing everyday. These improvements are not yet complete. At this stage, it may be difficult for investors to decide. Sufficient knowledge and experience is needed to invest in digital printing technology. You can obtain this support through counseling and research methods. After sufficient knowledge and feasibility studies, digital printing technology can be invested. Our article evaluates digital printing technology from a wide angle thus we aim to help those who do research on the subject. Digital printing machines have a complex structure. Many disciplines such as electronics, mechanics, chemistry, textiles, fashion and art are intertwined for digital textile printing technology. It is not possible to have all disciplines in one person. Efficient operation of the digital printing machine can only be achieved with a strong team. First of all, you need pattern work designers and equipments capable of feeding digital printing with their work. In the next stage, you will need people to do the calibrations and color work. If you add more, machine operator, electronic and mechanical team, fabric pre and post treatment team, logistic support people will be needed. The size of the team depends on the size of the work. The most problematic parts of digital printing machines are the printheads where the dye is sent to the fabric surface. New developments are taking place every day in this regard.
