2016 • THE DIGITAL DIRECT REPORT • 31 DIRECT-TO-GARMENT PRINTER M&R presents the M-Link X, which reportedly prints full-sized images on white T-shirts in 30–45 seconds and on dark shirts in less than a minute. The company states that the system's i-Color RIP software quickly converts files into printed images. The printer's white print mode prints CMYK with no underbase for use on white or light shirts, while color one-pass mode prints a gradated white under- base and CMYK on colored shirts. Black one-pass mode prints a gradated white underbase and CMY on black shirts, using the shirt's color for black areas of the image. On light-colored shirts with light pretreatment, highlight mode prints CMYK and a white highlight without a white underbase. n Visit: n Call: 800-736-6431 PRETREATMENT SPRAYER Lawson Screen & Digital Products introduces the Zoom-AE pretreatment sprayer.
