OKI Data Americas Expands Distribution Network for Textile Transfer Printers, Will Demonstrate Transfer Printing Capabilities at the SGIA Expo

Mount Laurel, NJ – OKI Data Americas announces the addition of a new distribution partner in the transfer market for apparel decorating and hard goods, along with its representation at the upcoming SGIA Expo taking place October 22-24, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. There, two distribution partners – the newly-signed Imaging Supplies Warehouse (ISW) (booth 747) plus existing partner, Graphics One (booth 4279) – will demonstrate OKI textile transfer printers in their respective exhibit booths and offer special promotions during the show.

Both exhibits will include OKI’s innovative high definition color devices with white toner for full color textile transfer printing functionality, including the pro920WT digital color printer and 711WT desktop A4 digital color printer. These units deliver a range of unique, high-impact and cost-effective transfer printing solutions for an ever-increasing array of specialty applications including textiles and hard surface materials. What also makes these devices so appealing is their ability to produce custom output on demand – whether for one piece or thousands of pieces.

The commercial-grade OKI pro920WT and 711WT are revolutionizing textile transfer printing with the ability to deliver custom output quickly, easily and efficiently – without the time, expense and mess of traditional screen printing methods. Both units print at up to 1200 x 600 dpi resolution to deliver clear, crisp text and graphics. With textile transfer printing capabilities on an expanding range of substrates that now includes leather, hard surfaces, and both light and dark fabrics, these innovative printers offer a compelling value proposition as viable alternatives to screen printing with their speed, accuracy, and high-quality output.

“With increased demand and growing market opportunity in the textile transfer space, OKI Data Americas is excited to bring Imaging Supplies Warehouse on board as a distribution partner to complement Graphics One in service to this industry,” said Rich Egert, General Manager of the Strategic Technology Provider Business Group for OKI Data Americas. “Imaging Supplies Warehouse brings extensive experience in the textile transfer printing arena and will strengthen OKI’s ability to expand our footprint in this space.”

ISW and Graphics One are authorized resellers of the OKI pro920WT and 711WT, and serve as national distribution partners for both devices throughout the US. Currently, ISW supports more than 100 dealers in the transfer market with a primary focus on substrates and materials.

According to Aaron Montgomery, Vice President of Sales, for Imaging Supplies Warehouse, "We are impressed with the flexibility and print quality of the OKI pro920WT and 711WT, and we look forward to demonstrating their impressive capabilities at SGIA. Both devices produce full color output for a broad range of substrates; this opens doors to new custom transfer printing capabilities and revenue-generating opportunities for our customers.”

The 2014 SGIA Expo draws thousands of imagers from around the world. Hundreds of exhibitors will showcase the broadest range of technology available on the market. This year, even more markets are represented on the Expo floor to help attendees get the widest range of possibilities and opportunities available today.

The pro920WT and 711WT are part of the impressive OKI proColor™ Series – a line of high impact digital color printers that serves the graphic arts, production, specialty printing and imaging technologies industries. The OKI proColor Series of commercial grade digital color printers delivers professional, production-quality color output and color accuracy powered by embedded EFI Fiery® and PANTONE® support on select models.

All OKI Data products are built on parent company OKI Data Corporation’s history of leadership and innovation. Most of OKI Data's color printing solutions feature Single Pass Color™ as well as proprietary digital LED and HD Color technologies. These technologies allow OKI Data Americas to manufacture products that require fewer moving parts for increased reliability and outstanding color output quality.
