Sawgrass Industrial announces the release of SGPrint at the ISA International Sign Expo 2012 in Orlando, Florida from March 22-24, 2012.
SGPrint is a performance RIP solution that provides all layout, RIP, color, and production control features in a single integrated workflow solution. The user interface within SGPrint displays critical job creation, preflight, printer status, job status and job costing information that can be customized for specific print workflow requirements. With its advanced linearization tools, multi-channel ICC profiling capabilities and spot color controls, customers can precisely match target colors while significantly lowering total ink consumption. The RIP solution includes tools for estimating job costs, assessing ink consumption, and monitoring color process control.
SGPrint can be expanded with a number of options for digital textile print production. Printed colorbooks generated within the RIP visually display the available printable colors in terms of RGB and Lab color spaces. The step-and-repeat functionality offers controls for half-drops, flips and mirroring of design files. Print shops can quickly generate color variations (colorways) from separated design files for sampling and short run printing.
"As a whole product solution provider, we recognize that print shops require a RIP solution that offers the highest quality color, customization and production controls for indoor and outdoor furnishings, textile signage, decoration and fashion applications," explains Mark Trimble, Director of Textile Applications, Sawgrass Industrial division. "SGPrint provides these features in a comprehensive RIP and print package. In combination with our new M-XTRTM pigment ink, SGPrint additionally rounds out our workflow and print solution for extreme speed digital printing systems."
SGPrint is currently available and supports most digital textile printers and color measurements devices.
