Epson releases dye sub paper

Epson has released details of its first dye sub paper, called DS Transfer Production Paper. It’s a lightweight media at 75gsm, designed to dry quickly and avoid wet cockling. Epson claims that it can transfer heavy ink loads efficiently to textile substrates and produces consistent high quality, sharp images and vibrant colours. It’s dimensionally stable during the printing and ink transfer processes, so should be easy to handle, with the minimum of waste.

Martin Johns, market development manager, Epson UK, says: “Our first transfer paper gives end users total peace of mind by providing a complete solution comprising Epson printer, ink and media, which have been optimised to work together to ensure the best all-round quality and performance for textile applications.”
It is compatible with the SureColor SC-F range of dye sublimation printers and their DS inks. It’s available in two roll sizes: 1.08m x 1.52m and 1.62m x 1.75m, which Epson assure me are the right sizes, though Epson’s smaller F6000 takes rolls up to 111.8cm and the roll lengths should probably by 152m and 175m each.
