Image Options has recently purchased the new large format direct and dye-sublimation printer from Mimaki. The 3.2m/10.49ft wide JV5-320DS enables direct printing on polyester substrates at high speeds and with excellent results. The highly acclaimed productivity and quality features of the previous JV5 have been merged in this model to produce outstanding print on textiles on a super wide scale. Mimaki’s proven Sb52 dye-sublimation ink with their superior colouration characteristics are used delivering vibrant colour and deep hues.
In addition to purchasing the new Mamaki dye-sublimination machine we are also proud to announce our Klieverik GTC 81/3400 – Grand Format heat press for dye fixation onto fabric. Go IO!
Image Options is thrilled to introduce their newest print solution – the Thieme 5-Color In-Line Screen Press. This press has a 64″ x 94″ printable area and prints direct to substrates up to 3/16″ thick with UV inks.
According to Wikipedia, “Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A roller or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink past the threads of the woven mesh in the open areas.”

DuPont provides a LifeCycle Based Solution with Tyvek® media for wide format banners, displays and bags. Tyvek®, is known for its lightweight strength, outstanding printability and drapeability. It is a substrate that can be recycled into park benches, landscape materials, drainage pipes and much more.
“Being able to produce very attractive retail signage for our customers makes us happy, but what makes us even more happy is being able to offer our customers a closed loop recycling program,” said Tim Bennett, CEO of Image Options. “The graphics get produced on a recyclable material, the graphics are shipped with a recycling kit for the used graphics, the kit has prepaid postage to the recycling center and reports can be generated to show your recycling effort. You can now deliver results from your sustainability efforts with this simple process.”
Contact Us to find out more about our recyclable retail signage materials and recycle programs.
In addition to retail signage, shopping bags can be made from the Tyvek material.
The Waste Management recycle kit is a Tyvek® envelope that is 12” x 16” and expands to a 4” depth to hold over 250 square feet of Tyvek® material. It comes with prepaid postage too!
Before the Tyvek is recycled into another product, it is turned into tiny little pellets.
