HP to debut new Stitch S series printers at The Print Show

Digital print giant HP has confirmed that it will use The Print Show 2019, which will take place at Birmingham’s NEC on 17th-19th September, to demonstrate its new Stitch S series digital textile printing technology in the UK for the first time.

HP is exhibiting at The Print Show for the third consecutive year, and is inviting visitors from all background to drop by its stand and find out hosHP kit can help them access work in profitable sectors.

The Stitch S series, which was only unveiled to the market in April this year, will be the main attraction on the HP stand, as the company seeks to spread the word about its digital textile print capabilities.

The range comprises the HP Stitch S300 and HP Stitch S500 64” models, as well as the larger HP Stitch S1000 126” option. Each printer combines HP’s Thermal Inkjet technology with industry-standard dyes for superior colour durability, and also features the first-ever built-in spectrophotometer to enable fast and exact colour matching.

Phil Oakley, Regional Business Manager, Large-Format printing at HP, commented: “The HP Stitch S series is a portfolio of digital textile printers that deliver precise colour-matching, designed to boost growth via décor and apparel applications, as well as enabling on-demand production and personalisation.

“Stitch represents HP’s entry into the dye-sublimation textile market, delivering the world’s fastest colour match capabilities.”

In addition to the Stitch S series, HP will also be showcasing its new HP DesignJet for the first time at a UK trade show, as well as its HP Latex technology, using a number of printer models to feature across the HP stand in Hall 9 of the NEC.

HP will theme its stand around ‘Yes Unlimited’, with the idea of showcasing how its broad and versatile portfolio enables customers to say ‘Yes’ to any request, regardless of the time schedule or application. This follows on from last year when HP themed its stand ‘Yesville’ and encouraged visitors to seek out new markets.

Oakley continued: “Visitors will have access to a VIP tour of the stand to discover new soft signage, apparel, décor and large-format capabilities for engineering, public sector and enterprise markets.”

And, as a special bonus feature for The Print Show, HP will be running its own gameshow on its stand in the ‘HP Large Format Wheel of Fortune’. Further details of this will be revealed closer to the event in September.

HP will find itself in excellent company at The Print Show 2019, with a number of other major brands, manufacturers and suppliers having aleady signed up to exhibit. In recent weeks, Automatic Letter Bender, Boxford, CP Bourg/Terry Cooper Services, Grafityp, Merlin Transfers, NeoPost, Sakurai, Universal Adhesive Systems and X-Press OnDemand, have all booked stands for the event.

Sakurai, which specialises in both offset and screenprinting presses, will be taking full advantage of the show’s wide-reaching audience by displaying its MS-102 screenprinting kit and LQM foiling solutions.

For years, Sakurai screen technology has been used to overprint spot UV varnish onto offset printed sheets – in B1 and B2 formats – and the manufacturer has now added luxe-quality foil to the mix to offer ‘breath-taking options’ for creativity with print embellishment.

Mark Priest, UK Sales Manager for Sakurai, says screenprinting has now become extremely automated and precise, and visitors at The Print Show can learn more about the benefits of this technology.

Priest said: “Come and have a look at what an analogue process can produce. The detail, the contrast we can achieve, it’s so creative.

“We will showcase some simple effects that can be achieved printing live at The Print Show. We hope to inspire new clients to screenprinting, by offering packages that include state of the art functionality, the pinnacle of screenprinting equipment.”
