DuPont appoints QPS as distributor of Artistri digital textile inks.

Wide-format print specialist Quality Print Services (QPS) has announced that it will be adding the full range of DuPont Artistri digital inks for textiles to its product portfolio, with immediate effect. These textile inks are available in both pigment and dye-based formulations and deliver brilliant colours, excellent fastness properties, and robust print reliability.

Compatible with a wide variety of textile printing platforms including MS and Reggiani, DuPont Artistri inks have been developed for printing applications including apparel, accessories, indoor and outdoor soft signage, home décor, active wear, T-shirts and much more. They are available in a variety of viscosity bands and have been approved and certified for a wide range of print heads typically used for digital textile printing, including Kyocera, Ricoh Gen4 & 5, Seiko and Epson to name but a few.

Chris Bailey, Managing Director of QPS, says: "We were approached directly by DuPont and it seemed like a perfect opportunity to expand our product offerings. We always respond to market demand and, as we are increasingly receiving requests for textile inks other than dye sublimation for more specific applications, we know these additions will really benefit our customers.

"The DuPont Artistri inks are backed by a comprehensive print head warranty when used with the verified range of print heads and DuPont have made provision to provide technical and colour support for clients making the move across to the Artistri range. On top of this, QPS also brings a great deal of ink and digital experience to the end user.

"The Artistri inks sit nicely alongside our traditional graphics and signage business products and solutions. Our solid foundation in the digital printing market will enable us to expand into the growing printed textiles market."
