Breakthrough Technology for Digital Garment Printing
SWF East Inc., a Tampa, Florida-based, distributor of the DTG digital printers announced a new technology breakthrough in the way dark color garments are digitally printed. Impressions Technology, manufacturers of the DTG digital printers have just raised the bar in the textile direct inkjet market by now offering a unique and beneficial process that allows both white base and CMYK color inks to printed in just one pass on dark colored garments.
Traditionally all garment direct printers required a two pass process--first pass lays down a translucent or opaque white base and then followed by a color layer to complete the print run. The DTG Digital solution eliminates the need for the second pass as a proprietary patent-pending mechanical device that allows both white and CMYK color inks to be printed simultaneously.
Stephen Richardson, director of DTG commented, “Garments printers utilizing DTG style equipment, now have a faster, and in most cases, up to 70 percent better production option. Prints without the need for multiple passes drastically increase production times and work flow. Garment printers can now offer faster turnarounds with greater speeds and gain much greater control over the color gamut required to create truly original and fantastic color prints to a whole host of substrates. This breakthrough in technology will have significant impact in the markets.”
