HP updates soft signage Stitch S1000
HP has updated its Stitch S1000 soft signage printer, saying it will enable printers to diversify their soft signage and interior decor offerings, as well as meet more challenging customer needs.
According to HP, the new 2021 edition 3.2m-wide machine is designed “to offer high quality with greater versatility and smooth operation”.
HP says it gives users the option to print directly to fabric or onto transfer paper, and says the 1200dpi native printheads and the HP Drop & Dry system provides “deep blacks, vivid colours and extreme resolution”.
Oscar Vidal, Large Format global business strategy director, HP, said, "The new HP Stitch S1000 will allow PSPs to expand their dye-sub production versatility even further and say yes to ambitious projects, as well as demanding and innovative applications. With the large format industry set for a progressive year, HP’s latest Stitch device ensures soft signage and interior decoration professionals are able to handle a diverse range of customer needs, safe in the knowledge they have the technology to deliver.”
According to HP, a newly incorporated contact heater offers enhanced backlit saturation performance on direct-to-fabric jobs, meaning colours appear brighter and more vivid than ever before.
The HP Stitch S1000 is designed to provide rapid turnaround production start-up times and speeds of up to 220sqm an hour. Additionally, it also offers the possibility to double the throughput on substrates of up to 1.6m with dual roll accessory.
Previous HP Stitch 1000 printers can be upgraded in the field with the new features.
