Producing Out-of-This-World Dye-Sublimated Textiles

Producing Out-of-This-World Dye-Sublimated Textiles

Brothers Tej and Pratt Pande of SAI Netcom in Alpharetta, Georgia, believe in the personalized touch. Their business uses dye-sublimation printing to offer customized textiles and gifts, which are sold directly via SAI Netcom’s website as well as through a range of retail outlets.  
“Dye-sublimation lets us capture the true essence of photos or artwork on textiles, at costs far below traditional textile printing methods,” said Tej. To provide quality dye-sublimated products, SAI Netcom relies on Roland’s Texart™ RT-640 64-inch and VersaArt® RS-640 64-inch dye-sublimation printers.

Get ready to roll

Get ready to roll

Is 2018 the time to move work off your hybrid printer to a dedicated roll-to-roll printer?

Is your superwide hybrid printer approaching capacity? Is more than half of the total output volume of your hybrid printer roll-to-roll work? Are you looking for new areas to grow? A dedicated production-level, roll-to-roll printer may be in order.
In fact, if over 50-60% of the total output volume of your hybrid printer is roll-to-roll work, a dedicated roll-to-roll printer is recommended. It will give you faster time to market and more capacity to confidently bid on new jobs – for both roll-to-roll and rigid applications since you’ll free up time on your hybrid. And with the right printer model, you may be able to add new capabilities to produce higher-margin applications.
