CMYUK, based in Shewsbury, UK, has been appointed a direct channel partner for Epson’s newly-expanded SC-F Series of paper dye sublimation printers.

Developed in-house by Epson, the updated dye sub paper SC-F series combines superior ink formulations with three firsts for Epson – an A4 desktop, a 24-inch table-top, and a genuine 64-inch-wide fluorescent ink printer.

“CMYUK has a strong reputation for textiles and we have been servicing the dye sublimation market with high-quality paper, direct-to-textile printers and heat presses for many years,” said CMYUK sales director Robin East. “We also offer extensive ranges of digitally prepared fabrics. Partnering with Epson enhances our service offerings even further, and we are particularly excited about its latest desktop dye sublimation printers that will certainly satisfy the pent-up demand of the flourishing small home business sector.”

“CMYUK has a reputation for quality, and for understanding the needs of a wide range of printers from the smallest company to the largest organisations,” added Epson Sales Manager Phil McMullin. “Its leading position in textile consumables brings exceptional benefits to the Epson dye sublimation products – we know that higher quality fabrics used in production result in better print quality.  It makes every sense for us to partner with a company that has the credibility and a complete offering.”

The new Epson range comprises:

-The SureColor SC-F100, Epson’s first A4 dye sublimation printer. With the footprint of an A4 desktop printer, it is perfect for producing promotional goods and personalised gifts such as mugs, key fobs, phone covers and other small merchandise items. It also meets the needs of textile producers who want to create bespoke products including small bags, aprons, lanyards and cushions.

-The SureColor SC-F500 is a 24-inch tabletop dye sublimation printer.  Designed to expand business opportunities with high- quality printing on a wide range of gifts and promotional goods. It’s perfect for printed phone covers, mugs, mouse mats, t-shirts and cushions at fast turnaround times, and requires no specialist knowledge to set-up, operate or maintain.

-The SureColor SCF-6300 roll-to-roll printer, Epson’s mid-range paper dye sublimation printer. Again, requiring no specialist tools or knowledge to operate, this printer is designed for textile producers, promotional goods businesses and photographic studios.

-SureColor SC-F7200 is a complete solution for printing highest quality textiles and soft signage. This printer is designed for single-operator material loading with automatic tensioning. Owners have the option to add High-Definition Black ink (HDK) to enhance black density when printing onto specialist fabrics.

-SureColor SC-F9400 has been developed primarily for fast, high-volume printing for clothing, textiles and soft signage, as well as other printed merchandise. It has a maximum speed of 108.6 square metres per hour for fast turnarounds. The updated settings deliver a lower tension and accurate registration, which improves take-up and reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) by using lower- weight sublimation papers.

-SureColor SC-F9400H is another new innovation in the series giving Epson its first genuine fluorescent ink, paper dye-sublimation solution. Businesses can now print hard to miss yellow and pink to create striking sportswear, workwear and get-you-noticed fashion apparel.
