Our company heavily invests in R&D in order to have printers as versatile as possible and being

able to print on almost all the different kind of materials (Papers, Self-Adhesive vinyls, Films, PVC

Banners, Textiles…) in the case of the Latex printers and Transfer paper or Textiles in the case of

the dye sublimation printers. During the last few years, the market trends are changing the usage

of printing from PVC Banners to Textiles that is why the dye sublimation printers have been


Textiles provide soft hand, great color pop and considered more premium than vinyl or paper so a

higher value is perceived by the end customer. Moreover, textiles are lighter, wrinkle-free, easier

to transport, mount and store that means that the shipment and storage costs drop. In addition,

printing on textiles open a bigger range of applications that the customer can produce. Finally, the

new regulations are limiting the use of the PVC so printing on textiles is becoming more and more


Printing on textiles is not an easy task for most of the printers that do not have a sticky belt (which

is a very expensive solution) like the Latex and dye sublimation printers in the current portfolio.

Due to the fact that the textiles are stretchable, are not easy to be stack to the core with a sticky

tape or the dangerous that are the staples (that are easy to break and for the customer to get cut

with them), the customers need to waste time trying to load the printer several times to get the

best results in image quality because of the wrong tension, etc. In this disclosure we present an

idea that will completely allow to the customer to print on textiles with the image quality they

expect and without wasting time or putting themselves in danger. This idea takes advantage of the

cores and the media loading accessory that the printers are actually using.
