It allows you to direct print to fabric and sublimate inline for one-offs that are immediately ready for finishing and shipping. The 3.4-meter wide aqueous-based soft sig- nage printer with EFI platen and extraction technology system enables product to be sublimated inline. It offers dramatic four-color printing with ultra-high resolution up to 2,400 dpi and four level grayscale print- ing, and production speeds up to 2,691 square feet per hour. Inline sub- limation can be turned off and paper transfer can be leveraged if offline sublimation is available. For information, visit www.efi.com.
