This includes backlit and front-lit banners, block-outs, backdrops, and Point of Purchase displays.
These textiles also enable new home décor applications, such as curtains and blinds, cushions, lampshades, and bags, on materials made from 100 percent cotton, cotton linen or polyester, according to HP.
Some of the new textiles can also achieve washability with a heating process after printing, the company added.
“Unlike solvent-based printers, HP Latex technology can print on traditional signage substrates such as banners and vinyls, in addition to textiles, including uncoated substrates,” said Joan Pérez Pericot, GM, HP Large Format Graphics Business.
At booths 1029 and 1045, HP presented a textile showcase, as well as printing on HP Latex printers, which included the 2017 SGIA Product of the Year winner (Roll-to-Roll Solvent/Latex (over 80 inch) category) HP Latex 3600 Printer.
Textile printing is also supported on the HP Latex 1500 Printer, HP Latex 560 and 570 Printers, and on the HP Latex 365 Printer.
The new HP Latex 300 Print and Cut Solution was launched earlier this year.
The entry-level HP Latex 115 Printer and HP Latex 115 Print and Cut Solution, announced Sept. 25, are now starting market release, per HP.
