DuPont Advanced Printing displayed its newest range of inks for the growing digital textile market segment at Printing United, which took place from 23 to 25 October 2019 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.

At the show, the company showcased its new Artistri P2700 pigment ink designed for roll-to-roll printing. Artistri P2700 is a medium viscosity ink that delivers good color saturation, soft hand feel and wet and dry crock fastness.

For direct-to-garment (DTG) printers, DuPont highlighted innovative pretreatment technology, which enables stain-free printing and superior hand feel on cotton/polyester blends. With new choices of gamut expanding colors as well as its new Color Series E, F and G pigment ink offerings for DTG printing, the company offers a range of DTG inks.

Artistri digital inks combine DuPont proprietary dispersions, polymers and ink formulations resulting in brighter, more robust digital inks for digital printing. Artistri inks provide color consistency across production runs and over time. From DTG to roll-to-roll (RTR) application, DuPont inks are bright, richly colored and offer high durability.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
