“For years, our chemists have listened to the DTG printer community to generate the most vivid colors, strongest durability, and most efficient print and maintenance. With Firebird Ink, we have optimized these important attributes of DTG Inks. The DTG community should expect more out of inks for DTG printing - Firebird Ink plans to deliver.
“With Firebird Ink’s launch, we wish to lead the ink innovation moving forward. Firebird Ink intends to set the new standards for better quality and more profitable DTG printing.”
