EFI™, a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announces commercial availability of the EFI VUTEk® TX3250r fabric printer, enabling customers to take advantage of the demands and requirements of the growing soft signage markets. The VUTEk TX3250r printer is a new 3.2-meter, production-level solution that evolved from the first EFI industrial inkjet textile system, the VUTEk FabriVu, introduced in 2002.
An early adopter for the VUTEk TX3250r, Indy Imaging of Indianapolis, IN already had two VUTEk GS3200 hybrid printers. According to Robbie Gordon, president, "In our market, it's about reliability, quality and turnaround and all of that must happen consistently. Our customers have noticed differences in all three areas. What used to take us hours now takes minutes, and the quality that was not there at 300 dpi with other printers, is abundantly there at 1080 dpi on the new VUTEk TX3250r. The speed and quality of this new printer outpaces the competition. We can now print 10-foot wide banners with no seams, opening up another market for larger sizes in flags and banners."
With the ability to print direct to textile and transfer paper, the VUTEk TX3250r is an ideal solution if you are looking to grow your soft signage business with a production-level printer, or if you want to diversify your offering by converting traditional vinyl signage to a product with lower shipping costs, a greener footprint, easier installation and higher margins.
