S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • September 2019 • 53 "Now PSPs can do apparel, décor and rigid substrates with one printer. The options are increasing for production devices that offer this enhanced level of flexibility," said Hunter. A Few Words to the Wise When considering an investment in any new printer, Hunter advises taking the time to talk with different dealers and manufacturers before making any purchase. She also recommends looking very closely at the warranty and support available. "Especially when purchasing your first textile printer, it's important to have good support to ensure you are producing the best quality prints and that your equipment is up and running when you need it," she said. Additionally, Hunter reminds those in the market for a new digital textile printer to, "look beyond the sticker price." Often, the listed price does not include the cost of the take-up unit, RIP software, or inks. That said, it's an exciting time to be entering the textile market. "We are seeing lots of out-of-the-box think- ing," notes Hunter. "Clients are run- ning applications ranging from fabric wall coverings and printed carpets on up to cut and sew apparel." With so many options out there, and some care- ful research, a PSP seeking to enter this market will be able to find a digital tex- tile printer that expands the spectrum of products offered and positively impacts the bottom line.
