NEW E-SERIES™ DTG INKS FOR EPSON® RE-PURPOSED DIRECT-TO-GARMENT PRINTERS
New E-SERIES™ INK with 35 Second Cure Time
Most of the White inks on the market require 120-180 seconds to cure the white ink which we felt was too long. So, Image Armor™ decided to change the way the industry printed and cured their inks. Our Image Armor Inks have a true 35 second cure time for white or CMYK prints.
The new Image Armor™ Inks provide a great white base for all of your colored shirt prints. Whether it be a light colored shirt or a black shirt, the Image Armor Inks provide the best possible coverage and solution for white ink printing.
CAP & WIPER
The inks are designed to “play nicer” with your DTG printer. What this means is your printer should be less “messy” than the current inks you are using. Less buildup on the cap and wiper results in a better performance – which means less down time and more printing.
Just improving the cure time wasn’t enough for Image Armor™. The washability of the current inks on the market was alright, but not what we would expect when we print a shirt. So, we had to improve the washability of the inks giving you longer lasting, better looking prints wash after wash.
Many users have experienced better printability and coverage when used in conjunction with Image Armor™ Pretreatments. Now you can experience awesome looking DTG prints on some of the “less” than perfect shirts you normally never print with your DTG printer.
INTRODUCING THE NEW E-SERIES™ DTG INKS
Image Armor™ is proud to announce the release of our new Image Armor E-SERIES™ Direct to Garment inks for all the Epson® re-purposed printers. These inks are going to change the industry with a TRUE 35 second white ink cure on black shirts that also improves wash ability. The Image Armor E-SERIES™ inks keep the capping station and wipers clean while providing better coverage and whiter whites.
We are NOW SHIPPING the E-SERIES™ inks and believe that this is the start of a new DTG Revolution. This Revolution begins with a better performing ink that is more cost effective AND frees you from standing in front of your heat press for 120-180 seconds just to cure a shirt. Plus it contains NO ALCOHOL, has an incredible stretch ability after curing and is designed to help you improve your DTG printed products. That’s our goal at Image Armor™ – to continue to develop, improve, and provide the best products for printing DTG garments.
We will be releasing other inks for other printers over the next several months and are working diligently working on several new projects so please keep checking back for more information! Plus, you can find a DEALER now that is carrying Image Armor on our DEALER page.
Since the new E-SERIES™ inks are being released for all of the Epson® repurposed printers you might be wondering if you will be able to use them in your printer. Some of the printers include (but not limited to) are listed in the chart to the right.
Image Armor will be releasing other inks for printers, however the E-SERIES™ is the main release and is now available from select Image Armor™ Distributors. These distributors will have a variety of versions available in bulk and carts for most all of the re-purposed printers, however the most commonly available version will be in bulk 500ml and 1 liter bottles.
