Mimaki Announces New Neon Yellow and Pink Fluorescent Inks


Mimaki has announced the availability of two new fluorescent inks for its TS300P-1800 inkjet textile printers. Available in yellow and pink, they are ideal for fashion, sportswear, swimwear and shoes and are specially made for use in the low-volume, high-quality sublimation paper transfer market.

Every team, whether cycling, running, badminton or football, needs to have its own shirt, with a name, number and the sponsor’s logo clearly visible. With traditional print, the desired neon colours are hard to achieve and small lot production is often not cost-effective.

The TS300P-1800 was launched at FESPA and is specifically designed for digital low-cost production of high-value applications. The combination with the new inks opens up a new range of possibilities for textile printers, designers and garment manufacturers. ‘Fluorescent colours are in high demand in the fashion and sportswear markets,’ said Mike Horsten, General Manager Marketing EMEA at Mimaki Europe. ‘With these new Neon inks, designers and garment manufacturers will be able to extend the utility of digital printing solutions to the production of high quality running clothes and other applications that are personalised or have unique designs and stand out for safety or fashion purposes. These inks will finally and for the very first time allow customers to produce these high quality specialty products on a larger scale.’

The TS300P-1800 will be on display at ITMA 2015, where it will be running live demonstrations of the New Neon fluorescent inks. ‘We will have some very exciting samples of the new Neon inks in action for active wear, and we believe visitors to our stand will be quite impressed with what they will be able to achieve. We are looking forward to talking to brand owners, sponsors, teams and textile printers, to check the impact these new Neon inks and the Mimaki digital textile printing solutions may have across a broad spectrum of their business,’ said Horsten.
