ColDesi Chooses Kodacolor Inks for G4 DTG Printer
Custom designed for the new G4 DTG printer, Kodak brings 132 years of expertise in making beautiful images to the DTG marketplace.
“Our new G4 DTG Printer from Impressions Technology and DTG Digital will be powered by Kodak DTG Inks,” said Scott Colman, President of ColDesi, Inc. in Tampa, Florida. “Our tests prove out just how beautifully they print, and what a tremendous impact they have on reducing maintenance.”
G4 Benefits Include:
- Outstanding shelf-life
- Increased ink density
- Higher ink saturation
- Soft, natural feel
- Better in printer performance
- Shorter curing times
The DTG G4 Inks exhibit a large color gamut, a more reliable high-quality image with outstanding shelf life and a soft, natural feel, as well as better in-printer performance.
“We have rigorously tested these new inks and are thrilled with the performance,” said Grant French, business development manager for Digital Ink Sciences.
ColDesi’s customers, who are assisting with testing, report that they are impressed with the softness, feel and vibrance of colors as well as the durability after washing.
“Since we couple the Kodacolor inks with our G4 printer, the increased densities of ink and higher saturation of colors allows the G4 to print faster and use less ink,” said Jerid Hill, DTG Product Manager.
The DTG G4 also features cutting edge technology including a patented vacuum platen, user-friendly interface and onboard print queue.
“The vacuum platen can easily save 15-20 seconds, or even more, of loading and unloading garments,” Hill said. “High productivity isn’t only about how fast the printer prints, it’s also material handling, the G4 vacuum platen absolutely increases productivity, even on printers with similar speeds.”
The Kodacolor Ink will help ColDesi elevate the G4 to new heights in the direct-to-garment industry.
“Working with Kodak in developing these inks has been an easy experience. The chemist are very good at what they do. They listened to the needs of the industry and developed Kodacolor inks to solve issues the industry has been facing,” Hill said.
