Mimaki’s UK and Ireland distributor, Hybrid Services has announced that the company's latest dye-sublimation offering, the TS30-1300 1.3m printer, has arrived at its Cheshire showroom and is available for demonstrations.
The new TS30-1300 is a 1.3m dye sublimation printer that was launched at FESPA earlier this year, creating a real buzz around companies involved with manufacturing sportswear, promotional items and apparel, as Hybrid’s Textile Product Manager, Brett Platt explains; “The entry level TS30-1300’s arrival offers true wide format production dye sublimation at a new and much lower price point. Retailing at just £7,495 it provides everything we’ve come to expect from Mimaki’s high print and build quality for a new audience.”
Of particular interest is its configuration with yellow and pink fluorescent inks, as Platt continues; “We now have the option of fluorescent inks for the TS30-1300, and the demo unit at our showroom in Cheshire has been commissioned with neon pink and yellow to demonstrate the eye-catching opportunities fluoro inks afford. The extraordinary shades achievable using these inks makes them ideal for the production of dancewear and event branding and we’re keen to show this off to potential purchasers.”
Value and vibrancy can be added to bespoke, quality products by using neon inks and offer the additional safety feature of enhancing visibility to sports garments. Mimaki’s yellow and pink neon inks are ideal for including in designs for cycling kits, swimsuits and gymnastics apparel.
“The TS30 will also open doors to fashion designers and studios,” concludes Platt. “For sampling purposes, it’s no longer good enough to present a design idea on paper and the TS30 makes it cost effective to show compelling samples or even made up garments on a range of different polyester fabrics.”
