Replacing five older models, the two new Roland XT-640 machines were installed in May 2019 and will enable Falkirk-based EventureWorks to expand its product offerings and speed up turnaround while reducing its footprint. Ideal for businesses needing a robust solution for dye sublimation transfer printing - including sportswear, fashion, soft signage, interior decoration and promotional merchandise - the Texart XT-640 has been designed to combine superb quality, productivity and value with ease-of-use.
EventureWorks, which was founded in 2005 and also operates under The Cycle Jersey brand, specializes in custom-printed cycle jerseys made to its customers’ own designs, as well as supplying limited edition jerseys created with the permission of the relevant company or artist. The company, which employs four people in-house, has a wide gamut of customers ranging from B2B customers, as well as teams and individuals ordering directly from EventureWorks’ ecommerce platform.
The new printers have been installed with Nazdar NDT600 Series high-quality, alternative inks in bulk ink systems (BIS), also supplied by QPS. Designed for use on any printer platform using Epson printhead technology, Nazdar NDT600 Series inks deliver high print density, meaning customers can expect strong, vibrant prints, with less ink required to achieve these results. Less ink also means less bleed when used for direct-to-substrate applications, while prints dry faster, allowing end users to use lower weight - and therefore lower cost - heat transfer paper. Quicker drying inks are also essential as printers get faster, helping to accelerate workflow. Moreover, Nazdar inks are typically up to 30% less expensive than those offered by the original equipment manufacturer.
