One of Pixartprinting's goals for 2017 is to further expand its range and its level of technological innovation. Following the launch of the Catalyst production line, which can produce over 300 different combinations of customised packaging, and the expansion of the small format department, which now boasts the largest collection of Komori HUV and LED/HUV systems in Europe, Pixartprinting is now, quite literally, putting the spotlight on textile printing, with new tension fabric frames for your printed designs, including some with LED lights. And while the new displays use digitally printed polyester, prized fabrics like silk and cashmere are leading a genuine revolution at the company. Pixartprinting has expanded its range of natural fabrics printed with reactive dyes, which can be ordered in lengths of as little as 1 m, with six new finishes. There is something for every season: from silk, ideal for producing fresh and refined spring garments, to viscose, which, when combined with wool, makes autumn clothes soft and warm. Not to mention stretch cotton, which ensures excellent thermal insulation, and jersey, which thanks to its elastic properties is the ideal choice for swimming costumes and sportswear.
