Mimaki, a leading global manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutting plotters for the sign/graphics, textile/apparel and industrial markets, today announced the availability of two new fluorescent inks for its TS300P-1800 inkjet textile printers. Mimaki’s New Neon fluorescent inks, available in yellow and pink, are ideal for fashion, sportswear, swimwear and shoes and are specially made for use in the low-volume high-quality sublimation paper transfer market. Every team, whether cycling, running, badminton or football, needs to have its own shirt, with a name, number and the sponsor’s logo clearly visible. Producing these relatively small, customized lots cost-effectively requires sublimation technologies, and printing the entire garment rather than applying graphics information afterwards is more profitable. With traditional print, the desired neon colours are hard to achieve and small lot production is often not cost-effective. The TS300P-1800 was launched at Fespa, specifically designed for digital low-cost production of high-value applications. The combination with the new inks opens up a new range of possibilities for textile printers, designers and garment manufacturers.
