Nearly five years have passed since Screen Printing first covered direct-to-garment inkjet printers, and while the technology has remained essentially the same at its core, the market has experienced somewhat of a shake-up since this publication’s last treatment of the subject (“Direct-to-Garment Deluge,” Apr. 2009, p. 20). A handful of manufacturers have left the market, a couple of new names have joined the game, and some of the remaining players have developed new systems. Let’s take a look at what’s available.

AnaJet Inc.
AnaJet’s new Sprint (pictured) features ink-flow controls to accommodate different types of fabric, automated maintenance routines, and a closed-loop ink-delivery system that’s designed to maintain pressure balance and prevent ink-nozzle clogging. It supports a maximum image size of 12.5 x 16 in. (318 x 406 mm) and imaging resolutions up to 1440 dpi. The printer is compatible with AnaJet’s AnaBright (CMYK + White) and PolyBright (CMYK) inks, both of which are water-based formulations. The Sprint’s software runs on Windows XP or Vista and interfaces via USB 2.0.

The FP-125 from AnaJet offers printers the ability to manage ink flow via a 15-level ink-volume control and five levels of fabric-dependent volume adjustment. The inkjet printer can image onto garments made of 100% cotton, poly-cotton blends, and certain types of 100% polyester. The FP-125 uses water-based, pigmented inks from AnaJet and features a closed-loop ink-delivery system. Users can switch between CMYK and CMYK + White configurations. A 12.5 x 16-in. (318 x 406-mm) shuttling print table takes care of garment handling, and the printer supports a maximum garment thickness of 0.6 in. (15 mm) and imaging resolution of 720 dpi. AnaPrint software is for decorating white, pastel, and light colored garments. An optional software RIP is available for printing onto black apparel. The device’s three-step workflow includes image selection, printing, and setting the image in a heat press or conventional garment dryer. The FP-125’s software runs on Windows XP or Vista.

There are definitely loads of details like that to take into consideration. That could be a great level to carry up. I provide the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you convey up the place the most important factor will probably be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if greatest practices have emerged around things like that, however I'm certain that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game.

Purchasing replica watches australia these days may be seen by majority as something impractical. Given the price tag of one Rolex wristwatch, it is understandable why there are people who take it that way. However, there are watches that can be a bit too extravagant for your taste and there are watches that are worth their monetary value and Rolex watches are definitely worth every penny. Once you have Rolex in your wrist, you are not having on just any watch. You are wearing an important part of the watch industry's history.
