The Speciality Graphic Imaging Association has honoured the Sawgrass SubliJet-HD FLEX eight-colour ink set for the Virtuoso 63.5cm (25 inch) HD Product Decorating System with the Product of the Year Award in the Digital Inks – Textile category.
SGIA’s annual Product of the Year Awards are known worldwide for recognising print technologies that demonstrate exceptional quality, innovation and value to printmakers across industries.
‘We are incredibly honoured that our SubliJet-HD inks and Virtuoso systems have earned a fourth SGIA Product of the Year Award since their introduction two years ago,’ said Sawgrass president Darcy Mauro. ‘SubliJet-HD FLEX inks exemplify our commitment to empowering businesses to grow with leading edge sublimation printing applications that simultaneously deliver the outstanding colour, clarity and value that drive sales success.’
A Sawgrass representative noted that the SubliJet-HD FLEX is the only dye sublimation ink set available that delivers superior CMYK colouration, the ability to reach colours well outside the traditional four-colour gamut, and true fluorescents. Working exclusively with the Sawgrass VJ 628 printer, winner of SGIA’s 2015 Product of the Year for Roll-to-Roll Dye Sublimation on Metal, SubliJet-HD FLEX offers traditional CMYK colours, for outstanding colour quality in high speed and everyday applications. The set's orange and blue ink cartridges allow sublimators to greatly expand their colour gamut to offer products for colour-critical applications, such as specific team and brand colours. Finally, its fluorescent yellow and pink inks bring true fluorescent colouration into the mix to add excitement and high visibility to applications.
