Digital printing has huge potential within the growing market for personalized footwear. Be it a fully customized pair of training shoes or adding a personal touch to an existing pair of shoes, inkjet offers a route to add value. Inkjet printing processes can allow any design to be printed directly onto a finished shoe or during the manufacturing process, as a one off or in multiples for the same cost per piece.
The different materials used in the construction of a training shoe present a challenge, however, Sensient has an ink for all textiles as well as for other widely used components like synthetic and natural leathers, plastic and rubber. In each case, Sensient is aware of the strict performance requirements and works with users and integrators to get the maximum benefit of digital printing.
