A plain crepe fabric is made from a very thin, soft cloth that is usually white or light colored. It has a smooth surface and is often used for clothing, curtains, and other home decor items. Plain crepe fabrics are printed using either dye printing or silk screening methods. Dye printing is the most common type of printing used with plain crepe fabrics. This method uses a dye to print onto the fabric. The dye reacts with the pigment in the fabric to create a color image. Dye printing is great for creating vibrant colors on plain crepe fabrics because it doesn't require a large quantity of ink.
