Press release from the issuing company

ACI, an award-winning full-service color lab in Cedar Falls, IA, announces the installation of the 126” HP Stitch-S1000 superwide printer, expanding service offerings to their client base.

“We are very excited about the Stitch S1000 printer!” Mark Lane, owner at ACI continues, “We already have a couple superwide direct-to-textile printers, so adding a transfer option to the mix was an obvious next step for ACI. The install could not have gone any smoother, thanks to the pros at IT Supplies and HP! The thing took right off and I must say the installers, trainers and color management team were simply awesome. We focus on customer experience through innovative products and services and new technology investments. This acquisition allows forward growth for our industry partners and photo professionals as well as our own business.”

The HP Stitch S1000 126-inch Printer is the newest addition to the recently announced HP Stitch portfolio, providing super wide dye sub production printing for soft signage, sportswear, fashion, interior décor textiles industries and beyond. The color match is exquisite, while the printer delivers continuous high-quality prints on paper and fabric with simplified operation at high productivity levels.

Chicago-area reseller, IT Supplies, Inc., consulted with the team at ACI to ensure a smooth sale, on-site install and all around commitment for service, color-accuracy, related supplies and continued support. Greg Lahart, President at IT Supplies shared, “We’ve been installing printers in the marketplace for over 20 years, and we still get excited to see our customers’ enthusiasm with new products and solution offerings for their clients. The dye sublimation market is exploding with new applications and we are right in the middle of the excitement.”

Santi Morera, General Manager & Global Head of Graphics Solutions Business at HP Inc. notes, “HP’s expansion into the textiles industry solidifies our commitment to making digital printing accessible to all.
