According to Paul Crocker, AnaJet director of marketing,
users can take the Ricoh Ri 100 to event sites or put it in a kiosk
at a mall. Because the heating elements aren't exposed like on a
heat press, there is little risk that a user will get burned.
Ricoh's new AnaJet Fulfillment Network enables more artists and designers to sell their own T-shirts without investing
$20,000-plus in their own DTG printer. Print shops across the
US that use the AnaJet Ri 6000 to produce high-quality dark
and light garments can apply to join the network and print
and ship orders to customers in their area.
With the cloud-based AnaJet Fulfillment network software
developed by InkLocker, incoming designs can be downloaded along with barcodes that contain the appropriate print settings and color profiles for the type of garment to be printed.
When this information is scanned into the RIP for the Ri 3000
or Ri 6000, the printer automatically prints the correct image
and colors. The barcode also helps artists track the delivery
status of jobs for their customers. The system is designed for
ease of use, allowing even small print shops equipped with
Ricoh Ri 6000 printers to benefit from trends toward decentralized printing and mass customization of garments.
When independent artists and designers have generated enough business, they can buy a Ri 100 DTG printer to
handle orders for shirts on light-colored garments and send
orders for dark-colored garments to shops in the AnaJet
Fulfillment Network.

DIRECT COLOR SYSTEMS

Direct Color Systems has developed DCS Multisolve UV-Stable
IRF6(T) ink for a patent-pending T-shirt printing technology
that uses UV LED inks instead of water-based textile pigment
inks. At the 2018 ISA Sign Expo, DCS demonstrated that

SCREENPRINTING

DCS IRF6(T) UV-LED inks on their Direct Jet UVMVP and
1800z printers can adhere to all types of T-shirts, including
100-percent cotton, cotton blends, synthetics, and 100-percent
polyester - without chemical pretreatments. The only time a
"pretreatment" is needed is when a white underbase is being
printed. Then, the T-shirt should be sprayed with distilled
water first. The printed inks stretch with the garment and
resist fading, even after multiple washes.
Another benefit of printing T-shirts with a DCS UV-LED
printer is that the same device can print on rigid items, too,
such as smartphone cases and sign blanks.

BROTHER

Innobella Textile Inks for Brother's new GTX Printer are
designed to print a wider color gamut with bolder, more
vibrant colors. Innobella Textile inks are formulated to resist
chemicals found in typical laundry detergents and withstand
being scraped by zippers and buttons. Garments printed with
Innobella Textile Inks scored 4.0 or higher on AATCC wash
tests. The inks are sold in replaceable pouches that use less
plastic and create less waste.

IMAGE ARMOR

Image Armor makes inks for many DTG printer models
as well as pretreatments designed to lessen ink consumption, speed production, and enhance washability. Recently,
Image Armor announced a Light Shirt pretreatment that
can be used to print CMYK DTG prints on white and some
light-colored polyester fabrics. Depending on the fabric and
design, the company reports that some white ink printing
can be attained on light-colored polyester with commercially acceptable results.
