Market and Application
The Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1624WX 64″ 1625mm is ideal for everyday dye sublimation printing for established Print Shops and Sign Makers and those businesses wanting to extend their portfolio. In dye sublimation printing, images are printed in reverse onto transfer paper. After printing, a heat press or calendar fixes the images onto polyester-based textiles. The heat process bonds the images permanently to the fabric. Colours are bright and vibrant. Outputs are durable and washable. Unlike other ink jet technologies, the sublimation process does not affect the handling and feel of the material.
The Mutoh ValueJet VJ-1624WX is targeted at mid-volume production of soft signage, apparel and textile printing with Mutoh water-based dye sublimation inks. Prints can be transferred onto flexible and rigid polyester materials, producing soft signage, clothing and gadgets: high quality in-store textile decoration & displays, textile banners, pop-ups, personalised home decoration, sportswear & shirts, flags and pennants, mugs, phone covers, mouse mats, umbrellas and much more.

Using Mutoh’s water-based dye sublimation inks and easily available uncoated recyclable polyester-based materials means there is no need for forced ventilation, as the inks are free from VOCs and hazardous components. Average ink consumption is 8.5ml/m² at 720dpi with 67% coverage. The prints are also odourless. Soft signage is much easier to pack and ship which reduces transport costs, as it fold easily to reduce space and extremely lightweight. Soft signage can be washed, if necessary and re-used without fading. Mutoh water-based dye sublimation inks feature UV durability of 3 to 6 months outdoor. Mutoh’s Water-based dye sublimation inks are available in 1000ml bulk bottles, and will enable you to lower your cost per copy. Paper prints are produced faster, which increases your productivity. Readily available low cost polyester fabrics (uncoated) means you can offer higher end luxurious products with premium appearance, touch and feel, which can be sold at a higher price compared to regular vinyl, paper and banner prints.
