Surface imaging: New concept and field for printed interior decoration

Surface imaging is a new field and concept in the digital printing industry. It defines to actualise imagery for various physical forms using a variety of digital printing technologies that consist of direct printing application on diverse porous, non-porous, ridged and flexible substrates as well as fabrication printing (material deposition and subtraction printing technologies – laser and enhanced 3-dimensional printing).  At the same time, surface imaging offers a transdisciplinary approach to the industries including segments of sign and graphics, decorative, packaging and functional printing to move beyond the boundaries of existing traditional disciplines. This presentation introduces significance of surface imaging in the printed interior decoration and its future trends to bring new innovations and creativities for its product developments.
