Strengthening the marketplace for excellence in textile and soft-signage printing
Salt Lake City, Utah – Onyx Graphics, Inc., a leading software solution provider for the wide-format printing industry celebrating 30 years of innovation throughout 2019, announced today that its ONYX software is certified for the HP Stitch textile printer line. The HP Stitch S Printer Series is the first widely available textile-focused printing solution developed by HP.
HP’s RIP certification program defines a comprehensive set of integration, compatibility and performance criteria aligned to the highest performance standards and the unique capabilities of HP printing technologies. The HP Stitch Certification is a process to differentiate HP partners that demonstrate conformance to these criteria in order to receive HP Stitch Certification status.
For the new HP Stitch S Series, Onyx Graphics designed the driver to include functionality for both direct-to-fabric printing and dye sublimation transfer using paper or film. In addition, the ONYX driver provides a custom ICC build option preset specific to the HP Stitch printers as well as ONYX QuickSet options to simplify managing textile and dye sublimation workflows. Combined with ONYX iccMAX v5 profiling found only in ONYX 19, users of the HP Stitch S300 and S500 printers have an easy way to achieve superior and consistent color across their entire print production environment, as well as a simple way to automate complete textile print workflows.
“ONYX software certification by HP and its integration with HP’s first-ever textile printer defines quality and color for textile and soft-signage print applications,” said Bryan Manwaring, Director of Product Marketing at Onyx Graphics, Inc. “HP Stitch S Series customers utilizing ONYX software profiling and color tools can feel confident in delivering fast, consistent quality output that can be automated at the click of a button.”
