PRINTER WITH SNAP-ON PLATENS Polyprint's TexJet Echo direct-to-garment printer is reportedly suitable for businesses wanting to go beyond the capabili- ties of a direct-to-garment printer. The seven different-sized snap-on platens offer versatility and allow flexible, fast, and effective printing as platens can be swapped, allowing users to respond to different customer re- quests, work on different projects, and save money with its low running cost. It also offers photorealistic image quality with sharp details and color accuracy. With a print area of 16.5" X 23.6", it is possible to print A2+ image sizes, cover all T-shirt sizes and all-over prints on different garments, while the automatic height adjustment between the print head and the garment gives more precision. TexJet echo comes with RIP v.7 that has the benefits of a professional photo edit- ing software, CMYK-W inks powered by DuPont Artistri and a 1-year warranty on the print head and all mechanical parts.
