INKJET RIP SPECIAL APPLICATIONS
One of the hottest inkjet printing trends is direct-to-garment printing. With direct-to-garment devices, shops can produce full-color t-shirt designs on untreated 100% cotton garments.
With relatively easy setup and post-processing, direct-to-garment printers are giving traditional screen printers the capability to expand their business into short run production. Compared to desktop printers used for dye sublimation, the cost for a direct-to-garment device can be relatively high.
To quickly earn a return on their investment, direct-to-garment print shops are finding that they need full-featured RIP software. Wasatch SoftRIP helps users achieve superior color accuracy, high production speed, and cost savings with direct-to-garment inkjet printers.
Wasatch prints using an innovative halftone method that produces superior quality color and perfectly smooth gradients. Direct-to-garment solutions that print directly from graphic applications don't come close to the color reproduction achievable with SoftRIP's Precision Stochastic Screens.
Variable Data Customization
With Wasatch's Variable Data Printing (VDP) Option, creating print runs of individually customized tees is just as easy as printing a batch of identical ones. Easily customize each garment with variable text and images. With SoftRIP VDP, you extend the power of the direct-to-garment short run production even farther.
Spot Color Matching
Wasatch SoftRIP includes a suite of color tools that help you with even the most intricate color workflows. Since profiling can be difficult with direct-to-garment devices, some users choose our Color Atlas Generator for producing consistent spot colors. No matter how complicated your post processing steps, the Color Atlas Generator will achieve custom spot colors quickly, easily, and accurately.
Printing to Dark Garments with White Ink Support
An underlay of white ink can easily be applied to an image using Wasatch SoftRIP and common graphic applications for printing directly to dark and colored garments. White ink choke tools help avoid mis-registration, and our device spot color approximator lets you see your white ink simulated in the on-screen preview. The all new Wasatch Tracer provides a streamlined workflow for creating underlays, overlays, varnishes, second surface prints, and other non-color separations directly in Wasatch SoftRIP.
