Roland DGA Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters worldwide, has announced the introduction of fluorescent ink specifically formulated for its Texart XT-640 and RT-640 wide-format dye-sublimation printers.
Developed specifically for dye-sublimation transfer printing, Texart printers deliver outstanding print quality and productivity for sportswear, fashion, soft signage, decor, promotional merchandise and much more. The new inks, Fluorescent Pink (Fp) and Yellow (Fy), can be combined with Roland DG’s Texart process ink colors to produce a vast array of vivid fluorescent hues and softer pastel tones. The proprietary Roland DG Fluor Color Library swatch palette can be installed in Adobe® Illustrator® and CorelDRAW® for unmatched ease of use and color customization. Simply clicking the desired colors in the swatch palette allows you to quickly and easily incorporate brilliant and pastel fluorescent colors into your dye-sublimation output.
According to Lily Hunter, Roland DGA’s product manager of textiles and consumables, the new Texart fluorescent inks will be available to consumers throughout North and South America in late July of 2016. The inks will be offered in a configuration of CMYKOrViFpFy.
“The addition of new fluorescent dye-sublimation inks to Roland’s Texart lineup will expand the creative options for customers within the rapidly growing field of textile decoration,” said Hunter. “These eye-catching inks are bold, vibrant and tailor-made for one-off and small-lot production of sports and fashion apparel. They’re also great when used as accents for soft signage applications.”
Roland DGA’s parent company, Roland DG, is currently showcasing a wide variety of textiles created using Texart fluorescent inks at the ongoing drupa 2016 expo, the world’s largest international trade show for print and cross-media solutions, in Dusseldorf, Germany. Attendees can stop by the Roland DG booth (E04-1 in hall 9), now through June 10, to get a firsthand look at these colorful sublimated samples.
