|We wanted to thank EVERYONE who has tried Image Armor and who have come back to us with glowing reports on how it has helped them increase their effectiveness in Direct to Garment white ink printing. From making it easier to apply to a garment and taking the guess work out of how much to apply – everyone has found white ink DTG printing has become easier with Image Armor. What is the secret to Image Armor’s success?There are many reasons why Image Armor is setting the new standard for white ink DTG pretreating. However, one reason is that we really care about our end customers and the quality products they produce. It is our job to help you Protect Your Image. In helping you produce the best printing – pretreated surface possible, we go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that our entire process is controlled. This control gives the highest quality, purist product we can provide.
A great product begins with a great foundation, and Image Armor pretreatment begins with our state of the art water purification system. We are able to produce an extremely large volume of pure water every day that is free from chemicals and other impurities that can and does affect the final pretreatment mixture. Many other manufacturers don’t go to the extremes that Image Armor does to ensure you get the best product. This is just another reason that makes a difference…
We think like you do. You want to provide your customers with the best possible printed product. We want to provide you,our customers, with the best possible pretreatment solution. Your success is our success.
And we won’t stop working to help you Protect Your Image.
Image Armor is heading into the fall season with a full frontal campaign to let everyone know about our new products that are literally changing the Direct to Garment industry. Here are a couple of screen shots from the digital pages as well as our presence in the industry trade magazines. Our intent is to make sure that every single white ink DTG decorator knows the value of using Image Armor. Help us Protect Your Image. Tell your friends!
|The 2013 Philly NBM show proved to be an exciting time for Image Armor and those that have Ricoh based direct to garment printers.We wanted to thank Anajet for printing this fine sample for us at the show, which allowed Image Armor to do what it does best – protects the image. As can be seen in this photo to the left, the image was printed using the new Anajet M5 DTG textile printer, which utilizes the Ricoh print heads, on an athletic grey shirt using our soon to be released Light Shirt Formula (for use with white ink). With faster print speeds than other Epson based printers, typically the white ink may not have time to “flash” or gel up. Image Armor performed flawlessly by gelling the white ink up quickly allowing for a great looking final print.There are no excuses now for poor wash performing shirts in the direct to garment industry. Image Armor is here to Protect Your Image!|
Pretreatment in the past has been a huge deterrent for the newcomer to DTG white ink printing. You had to find “the sweet spot” or risk a failure of the print after the garment left your shop. This is not the way to run a business – not knowing if your shirt would fail and deteriorate when the customer washed the shirt.
What I end up telling people is, “Forget everything you thought you knew about pretreatment”. What do I mean by this?
Don’t assume that Image Armor is just one of the leading brands re-packaged. It is not. Anyone who has used it realizes that after the first shirt is pretreated and printed. When washed, the real results are seen. We are proud to be able to bring this technology to the DTG industry and are excited to help our customers Protect Their Image.
Thanks to some of our Image Armor Pretreatment beta testers it has been found that Image Armor Dark Shirt Formula works incredibly well with the new Epson SureColor F2000 direct to garment printer. As can be seen in the pictures above, without having been able to test various settings, a user on the T-Shirt Forums was able to post images of the printed shirts utilizing Image Armor Dark Shirt pretreatment formula. With little more than a hunch and some pre-pretreated shirts, Dekay317 was able to post an initial review of the new printer as well as images of shirts printed on Image Armor Dark Shirt Formula.
We welcomes Epson to the direct-to-garment printing arena and are excited to be helping advance the DTG printing industry with our new ground breaking pretreatment formula. Image Armor Dark will be released at 12:00 pm on Friday September 13th, 2013.
