Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9736746A1] The invention concerns a printing process in which water-repellent and hydrophilic regions are produced on a surface of a print carrier (12) according to the structure of the image to be printed. The surface is then subjected to the action of steam by means of a vapour-deposition device (14), a thin film of moisture forming on the hydrophilic regions. After vapour-deposition, the surface is coloured in a dyeing station (72), the colour adhering to the regions not wetted with water. After colouring, the colour is printed onto the carrier material (60).
