Onyx Graphics has announced that its Onyx software is certified for the HP Stitch textile printer line. The Stitch S Series is the first widely available textile focused printing solution developed by HP.
The RIP certification programme 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 Stitch Certification is a process to differentiate HP partners who demonstrate conformance to these criteria in order to receive HP Stitch certification status.
For the new HP Stitch S Series printers, Onyx Graphics has 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 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 colour 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 colour for textile and soft signage print applications,’ said Bryan Manwaring, director of product marketing at Onyx Graphics, Inc. ‘HP Stitch S Series customers utilising Onyx software profiling and colour tools can feel confident in delivering fast, consistent quality output which can be automated at the click of a button.’
