Graphics One Announces Distribution Agreement with Shockline
SUNNYVALE, Calif. - November 2, 2018 - Shockline Technologies Transfers and Graphics One, are pleased to announce a new exclusive distribution agreement for the U.S. market.
Shockline offers an outstanding range of transfer papers including textile transfers for printing on fabrics, natural and artificial leather, wood and many hard surfaces such as metal, glass and ceramic. In recent times Shockline has focused on “self-weeding” transfers for t-shirts. Additionally, Shockline produces extremely innovative transfer papers in rolls for inkjet printers including a unique transfer solution for wall decoration and for natural leather printing. Shockline also produces waterslide decals.
“We are extremely happy to have Graphics One as a key partner in the international sales of our product line. Graphics One has been a leader in the distribution of OKI’s white toner printers in the U.S. market and we have worked very closely with OKI Europe and OKI Japan in the development of our textile transfer products. We feel this will be a very good collaboration between our companies. Additionally, we are hoping to develop products specifically for the American market with the help of Graphics One,” says Giuseppe Biondi, managing director of Shockline.
Dan Barefoot, VP of Graphics One states, “We are really pleased that Graphics One will be the U.S. master distributor for the entire range of Shockline media. Shockline has been recognized worldwide as one of the most innovative manufacturers in this market segment. The first product which will be offered will be the highly successful two-step paper developed to work with OKI’s white toner printers. This solution, called FC TopDark New, works perfectly for black and dark garments and has become the leading transfer paper outside the U.S. for the OKI white toner printers and we are expecting the same in the U.S. We will then add on the other innovative products from Shockline.”
Shockline’s wide range of papers has been approved by OKI Japan. Additionally, Graphics One is working with OKI Americas to ensure compatibility with new OKI printers, such as the Pro9541WT and traditional printers such as the C711WT, C831TS and Pro9432WT. Further, Shockline’s research and development staff continue to create new and innovative transfer papers for the transfer market.
