Roland DG , a provider of wide-format inkjet printers and integrated print/cutters, has introduced SBL2, a new sublimation ink packaged in 1-liter bottles for heat transfer printing with its Hi-Fi Express FP-740 sublimation inkjet printer.
“Soft signage is a new visual communication medium that showcases the unique look and texture of fabric,” said John Wall, marketing & operations manager.
“In addition to its visual appeal, fabric is an excellent choice for environmentally-conscious customers. To maximise this medium, the FP-740 featuring SBL2 ink delivers vibrant colour and exceptional colour fastness on lightweight, flexible fabrics for beautiful flags and banners. The SBL2’s large 1-liter bottles also support unattended, high-volume printing for greater productivity.”
The FP-740 and SBL2 ink produce rich, dense colours for high-impact graphics that dry quickly.
When equipped with SBL2, the FP-740 produces a fine dot pattern for maximum ink transfer to the final fabric.
As a result, sublimated graphics reflect flawless, even ink coverage and deep, vivid colours with absolutely no banding. Once printed, FP-740 soft signage is easy to handle, safe to install and lightweight for reduced shipping costs.
New SBL2 Ink for the FP-740 features:
- New lower-cost sublimation ink makes soft signage production highly profitable
- Generates dense, vivid colours for stunning flags and banners
- Dries quickly on the transfer paper’s surface for maximum ink transfer to the final fabric
- Large 1-liter bottles support high-volume, unattended production
