Magic Textiles reveals exciting expansion opportunities with Roland RT-640 from QPS

Quality Print Services (QPS), a wide-format print specialist and the main UK distributor of Nazdar digital inkjet ink products has installed a Roland RT-640 dye-sublimation transfer printer at Magic Textiles' custom-built facilities in Leek, Staffordshire.

The Roland RT-640 printer was installed by QPS in late January 2019 and will enable Magic Textiles to expand its services to include printed products made from man-made fabrics such as polyester. Ideal for businesses looking to get into sublimation printing, the Roland RT-640 has been designed to combine superb quality, productivity and value with ease-of-use.

Magic Textiles offers a full, bespoke textile printing service to a wide variety of customers ranging from major household brand names - including Rolls Royce, J Barbour & Sons, and Paul Smith - through to small, independent designers. Established in 2003, the company employs 23 people.

Regarding the new purchase, Lee Casswell, Owner of Magic Textiles, comments: "Our new Roland printer has opened the door to some exciting expansion opportunities and enables us to offer printed polyester textiles alongside our existing range of cotton and cotton mix products.

"It really was a case of dipping our toes in the printed man-made fabrics market. Since installation, we've also had enquiries from existing customers interested in flags and banners for outdoor use - something we were unable to offer until now."

The new printer is running Nazdar NDT600 Series high quality, alternative inks which are also supplied by QPS. Designed for use on any printer platform using Epson print head technology, Nazdar NDT600 Series inks deliver an incredibly high print density, meaning customers such as Magic Textiles can expect strong, vibrant prints, with less ink required to achieve these results. Moreover, Nazdar inks are typically up to 30% cheaper than those offered by the original equipment manufacturer.

Lee Casswell concludes: "We are really pleased with our recent hardware acquisition and are very optimistic about the opportunities it will open up for us. QPS have been a really helpful throughout the purchasing and installation process - they've been a great help."
 
Roland DG will be exhibiting at the Global Print Expo 2019 at stand A5-H10 and Nazdar Ink Technologies will be exhibiting at stand B5-F50. FESPA Global Print Expo is Europe’s largest specialty print exhibition for screen and digital wide format print, textile printing and signage solutions. It will take place at the Messe Munich between the 14-17 May. Please use promo code FESG902 to register for free.
