Ms Wilmet Shea, General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, commented: “Sustainability has been more than just a buzzword in the last few years, and is growing in importance. Its prominence will ensure printing service providers, as well as ink and consumable suppliers, make further improvements in printing techniques, technologies, and raw materials. As one of Asia’s most influential textile printing platforms, DS Printech China will showcase these sustainable solutions to domestic and international buyers, encouraging responsible downstream business operations.”
The three-day trade fair will see the digital and screen printing industries congregate in Guangzhou, and cover a wide spectrum of current solutions for their supply chains. Nearly 200 leading exhibitors have confirmed their participation, and are eager to present their sustainable advancements next month. Highlighted exhibitors include:
Bostik (Shanghai) Management Co Ltd
One of the world’s largest adhesive and sealant companies will be showcasing their OEKO-TEX® compliant textile printing film. The activated thermal bonding films can extend product durability, improve productivity with quick bonding, easy cutting, and low melting points, as well as provide matte or glossy finish and softness for improved appearance.
Brother Co Ltd
One of multiple exhibitors headquartered in Japan, this company will feature its digital garment printer GTX, an advanced solution to conventional DTG printing. Brother’s water-based pigment inks are ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® certified and CPSIA compliant. The innovative replaceable pouch packaging ensures less waste and a lower environmental impact.

Shanghai Mimaki Trading
A multifaceted supplier of wide-format inkjet printers, cutting plotters, 3D modelling machines and raster image processing (RIP) software, which invests strongly to develop eco-friendly printing equipment, allowing for eco-solvent inks and UV-LED printing solutions. Through tighter integration of printers and software, Mimaki reduces harmful waste, CO2 footprints, and energy consumption.
Zhongyi Ink & Paint Co Ltd
This well-known domestic company has been producing ink for around 32 years. In addition to water-based inks, Zhongyi’s products include environmentally green UV/LED inks, water based ink, high quality solvent based inks and the matching auxiliaries materials. They are widely used in different segments including offset printing, rotary letterpress ink, roller coating and silk screen printing.
Given the momentum behind the global sustainability movement, it’s no surprise that a growing number of exhibitors are focusing on this topic. In fact, with the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recently issuing a “Red Alert” , brands and consumers are searching for solutions to minimise carbon emissions and other waste. Improvements in equipment, design, and logistics are poised to reduce emissions, while innovational inks and substrates will leave their imprint on the market as companies look for more viable and sustainable alternatives.
DS Printech China is a rebranding of two events: CSGIA and Textile Digital Printing China. The debut edition in Shenzhen in 2020 attracted 200 exhibitors, who connected with 8,853 visitors and over 130,000 online participants.
The fair is co-organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, China Screen Printing & Graphic Imaging Association (CSGIA) and Guangzhou Teyin Exhibition Service.
