Default Sawgrass White Ink - ISS Ft. Worth Show

Just curious to what the other people's opinions are that went to the Ft. Worth ISS Show and saw the white ink sample shirt from Sawgrass.

I thought it was a nice, sellable white ink. Not sure if I would call it the brightest white on the market (kornit is pretty bright in my opinion based off of what I saw the last time). But what I liked was the hand for the entire shirt was nice and you could not see a pretreatment stain on the black shirt. The shirt was not printed at the show, but they said that it was pretreated on the dtg machine simply using a roller and printed wet. That is pretty nice compared to the old method (mist the shirt with distilled water, pretreat, heat press,...). This would also allow you to just pretreat the area being printed (i.e. left chest design) instead of pretreating the entire shirt.

The other thing we did was put a little water on our fingers and tried to scratch the ink off. The sawgrass sample had basically no lose. A DTG/Mesa sample had some ink lose - which might have been from the pretreatment or not fully curing the print. But the sawgrass print held up very well. Now, we just need to see if the pretreating process is really as easy as what they say.

Yes, there plan was to release the white ink in Orlando at the SGIA. I guess because it is a bigger show, more press, most of their distributors will be there and some other reasons...that would be the best place to release it.

We are talking about the direct-to-garment inks, not the sublimation inks.
