Eastman Kodak Company announces the launch of a new ink system for Film-to-Fabric (DTF) printing projects.

Film-to-Fabric ink systems can be used with most modified inkjet printers and involve three simple components – powder, film, and ink. The benefits of DTF, like the KodaColor FTF (Film-to-Fabric) System, include the ability to print on a wide variety of fabrics (for example – natural fabrics, polyester, nylon, rayon, blends, and cotton), less investment in hardware for a startup, and more flexibility to accept customer printing projects.

Kodak’s FTF ink system is the ideal solution for print shop owners

KodaColor Film-to-Fabric Ink System includes KodaColor Powder, KodaColor Film, and Ink specially designed for use in a film-to-fabric application. Customers with existing Direct-to-Garment (DTG) printers can use KodaColor DTG Inks with KodaColor Film and powder to add KodaColor FTF System to their offerings.

For fabric, print shop owners want high-quality prints without the expense of a full-fledged DTG fabric printing system or want to offer additional print projects on fabrics other than cotton to their customers, Kodak’s FTF ink system is the ideal solution.

Grant French, Kodak’s DTG and FTF product manager, said, “We are pleased to announce the entry of Kodak into this market, giving more customers access to a high-quality, lower-cost business option to create amazing, printed fabric projects.”


In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
