Polyprint adds mask option

Polyprint, which makes a number of desktop direct-to-garment printers, has developed a snap-on platen to help its customers print masks, called the 2-IN-1 ‘Fit & Flat’ Snap-On, face mask platen.

Polyprint has introduced a snap-on platen for printing direct to masks.

Actually, Polyprint already produces quite a range of snap-on platens for different purposes so this is a fairly obvious but nonetheless timely option given the current global pandemic. It includes one main platen with two flat-type plates for flat masks and two fit-type plates for triangular masks, and it’s easy to swap between the two. 

It will work with the TexJet, Echo, Echo2 and Shortee2 DtG printers though users will need to run a firmware update. There’s also a software upgrade that’s necessary to obtain the new Cadlink face mask templates.

George Benglopoulos, CEO of Polyprint, explained: “It’s snap-on design allows easy placement and quick runs. Created due to popular customer demand, Polyprint aims to improve the DtG printing market by pushing forward with new products that help DtG businesses stay at the top of their game.”

Polyprint, which is based in Greece, expanded into the US market at the end of last year, setting up a subsidiary, Polyprint USA, based in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Luke Ryerkerk, CEO of the US operation, commented: “I am looking forward to helping the DtG community improve by educating passionate people. We’re here to help anyone interested in DTG technology and to support them in reaching their business goals. There is nothing more satisfying than witnessing business owners start and grow their company successfully.”
