OKI Data Americas announces their participation at the upcoming NBM Show together with Graphics One in booth 119 at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center in Long Beach, CA, July 18-20, 2013. There, OKI will exhibit their ground-breaking textile transfer printing applications – now including leather – using the innovative OKI pro920WT digital color printer with white toner. These capabilities will be highlighted with the unveiling of a proColor leather motorcycle racing suit by custom designer and manufacturer, HEROIC Racing Apparel.
With its ability to print in full color – including white, the commercial-grade OKI pro920WT has revolutionized textile transfer printing with the opportunity to deliver custom output quickly and easily. The pro920WT will be demonstrated along with the 711WT desktop A4 digital color printer featuring with white toner from OKI Data Americas. Together, these units deliver a range of unique, high-impact and cost-effective transfer printing solutions for an ever-increasing array of specialty applications including textiles and hard surface materials.
These OKI printers offer a compelling value proposition as viable alternatives to screen printing with their speed, accuracy, size format, full color output including white. What also makes them so appealing is their ability to produce custom output – whether from one piece to thousands of pieces. Such unique printing capabilities are opening doors to new opportunities for customers like Todd McNabney, Owner of HEROIC Racing Apparel.
According to McNabney, “The OKI pro920WT is a world class product. Its ability to produce crisp, colorful, transferrable output for textiles including leather opens the door to amazing new custom printing capabilities for me and for my business. I’m just scratching the surface using this exciting technology.”
“HEROIC Racing Apparel’s impression of the pro920WT is representative of the user experience,” said Rich Egert, General Manager of the Strategic Technology Provider Business Group for OKI Data Americas. “Users are amazed with the capabilities, flexibility and print quality of the pro920WT, and find that they are expanding their businesses in new and innovative ways as a result.”
The pro920WT and 711WT are part of the impressive OKI proColor Series – a line of high impact digital color printers that serves the graphic arts, production, specialty printing and imaging technologies industries. The OKI proColor Series of commercial grade digital color printers delivers professional, production-quality color output and color accuracy powered by embedded EFI Fiery and PANTONE support on select models.
