Tee Siopa adds a second Kornit Storm HD
DTG stands for Direct-to-Garment, and refers to a method for textile printing. Unlike other textile printing methods, such as heat transfer or dye sublimation, DTG printing process uses specialised ink in order to print directly onto the garment, using a DTG Printer. The fabric fibers soak up the ink, and become part of the garment. This technology enables creating garment prints that do not crack, peel or distort in other ways.
Since it’s formation in 2021 Tee Siopa has been using the very best in DTG technology for our customers, the Kornit Storm HD printer. We’re delighted to announce as of June 2023 we have added a second Storm HD printer to our workflow meanign we can double our daily output and shorten our leadtime for our customers.
Our DTG printers enable on-demand, sustainable fashion that eliminates over-production and waste. Kornit’s printing solutions lead the industry in resource efficiency, consuming 90% less water and emitting 80% less GHG than silk-screen. Now your brand can have a real positive impact.
The Tech Bit
Our printers print in CMYK color model (process color, four color) with an additional Red & Green channel for an increased colur gamut. CMYK is a subtractive color model, based on the CMY color model, used in color printing, and is also used to describe the printing process itself. CMYK refers to the four ink plates used in some color printing: cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (black). The CMYK model works by partially or entirely masking colors on a lighter, usually white, background. The ink reduces the light that would otherwise be reflected. Such a model is called subtractive because inks “subtract” the colors red, green, and blue from white light. White light minus red leaves cyan, white light minus green leaves magenta, and white light minus blue leaves yellow. In the CMYK model, white is the natural color of the background, while black results from a full combination of colored inks. To save cost on ink, and to produce deeper black tones, unsaturated and dark colors are produced by using black ink instead of the combination of cyan, magenta, and yellow.
