Global Imaging Spotlights Digital Textile Printing at Workflow Studio Event
Global Imaging hosted more than 60 key industry leaders, manufacturers’ reps and owners of some of the nation’s largest and smaller printing companies
at its recent Workflow Studio VIP event focused specifically on digital textile printing, from file prep to cutting and sewing.
According to a 2014 InfoTrends report, 81% of the respondents named textiles as their number one growth opportunity for wide and grand format
applications. Recognizing this quickly growing market space and dynamic opportunity, Global Imaging continues to lead the way for its customers,
into the digital textile print market with its lineup of innovative digital textile printers, cutters and finishing products. “This was our first ever, VIP Event
dedicated exclusively to digital textile. We are committed to helping our customers understand and expand into this exciting market,” said Tara Lamb,
president of Global Imaging. “Bringing customers and prospective customers to our Workflow Studio to see the entire process, from prepress to finishing,
is a great opportunity for hands-on experience and personally addressing their questions and concerns.”
“It was incredibly valuable to have a comprehensive look and thorough education covering where the industry trends are pointing and how textiles fit into
the mix. As newcomers to dye sublimation equipment and installation, everything we saw and experienced gave clarity to the picture and our potential
for making an investment into that market,” noted Jeanne Dolan, Owner and Vice President of Dolan Printing in Minneapolis.
Demonstrations of top-of-the-line products and the latest innovations in printing technologies occurred throughout the day, including PrinterEvolution’s
best-in-class, dye sub digital textile printer, Evo33 DS, the pioneering commercial Neo 64 DS water-based turnkey dye sub printer with onboard
sublimation unit and the industrialized version Eos126 DS with onboard sublimation unit. A surprising highlight of the event was the Impulsa
Synchromatic ECO industrial sewing machine.
“More people are finding that sewing is an important part of the entire process when it comes to fabric printing, and having that skillset and capability in
their shop can be a competitive edge. So we had many attendees who were interested in and impressed with this particular piece of equipment,”
Other featured products included the Monti Antonio Calender, the Zünd G3 flatbed cutter and REXframe reusable textile aluminum display systems with
silicon edge graphics. All of these products will be showcased at Global Imaging’s booth #3413 at the SGIA Expo in October.
The day-long event also included a series of presentations on equipment advances, digital textile printing and fabric trends, finishing and workflow
The next Workflow Studio VIP event will be held in March 2015 and three more are planned for the year. Interested candidates should contact Global
Imaging at 1.800-787.9801.

Global Imaging Named North American Distributor off Impulsa Sewing
Global Imaging, the leading integrator of wide and grand format printing systems, has been named the North American distributor of Impulsa Sewing
Machines, announced Global’s CEO, Greg Lamb.
“With the addition of the Implusa sewing machines and accessories to our portfolio we can now offer our customers an excellent finishing product that is
often the most overwhelming hurdle for shops entering the fabric printing market,” he said. “These products are fast, precise and easy to operate, making
sewing and finishing fabrics and other textiles less intimidating and giving print shops an important service they can offer in-house.”
Based in Germany, Impulsa manufactures a breadth of sewing and finishing equipment and has been doing it since 1949 when they patented the first
steam iron. Global will be distributing two of its sewing machines along with various sewing work stations. The Synchromatic ECO 200 is a 2-meter
chromatic machine with a Juki head. It sews continuously without breaks and with automatic reverse sewing at beginning and end. The conveyor and
sewing speed are synchronized and an automatic thread cutting and continuous thread tension system achieves perfect results in hemming and SEG
sewing. The Synchromatic ECO NA 300 is a 3-meter automated sewing machine with an advanced Durkopp Adler sewing head and up to a 10 meter
conveyor system. A turning table can turn pieces when needing to sew on each side and because of the fast speed of the sewing, a needle cooling
element keeps the thread from burning. Both units are perfect for sewing heavy or light materials.

Global Imaging Showcases New Products
Global Imaging, the innovative reseller of state-of-the-art wide and grand format products, will showcase several new products in addition to an entire
grand format workflow at the 2013 SGIA EXPO, October 23-25 in Orlando, Florida.
The lineup of cutting-edge products includes the pioneering PrinterEvolution Evo33 DS and eSUV printers, and the new commercial-size Neo 64 DS
water based dye sub printer with onboard sublimation unit. The upgraded Novus Synergia H/UV high speed hybrid UV printer will also be featured as
will pre-press and finishing equipment and new REXframe reusable textile display systems.
“These products represent a full spectrum of grand format innovation and are in keeping with our mission to provide groundbreaking equipment at an
excellent price-to-performance ratio. We’re excited to showcase them at the EXPO and look forward to customer input and feedback,” said Greg
Lamb, founder of Global Imaging.
Evo Series printers are industrial, 10-foot printers that utilize a Dimatix Q-class VersaDrop GreyScale head with 10, 20, 30pL capabilities. The Evo33 DS is
the only water-based industrial class printer that can be used for direct or transfer dye-sublimation textile printing. The new Evo33 eSUV combines the
best attributes of ecoSolvent inks and UV technology. Users achieve the characteristics of ecoSolvent ink with conformable, high gloss, vibrant color and
high adhesion prints. They also receive the benefits of UV with immediate cure, providing completely dry, ready to finish prints, with absolutely no cure
banding. “This technology is amazing,” said Greg Lamb, founder of Global Imaging, “it prints at high speeds, with no odor, and these prints can be
sprayed directly with alcohol right off the printer with absolutely no damage to the image.”
The Neo Series commercial textile printers are available in three sizes (64”, 74” and 104”). The dye-sub printer uses an on-board fixation unit that is a
true calendar, utilizing even heat and pressure. The image quality is excellent with rich blacks, heavy pigment load, and superior GreyScale tones. It also
utilizes a smart cork roller that allows users to print on stretchable fabrics like Lycra, spandex and other sports textiles. Finally, it uses a smart trough and
sponge system that allows users to print on open-weave products like mesh and flag without marking the back with “blow-by” ink.
“We are continually working to drive innovation in all areas of wide and grand format printing, from customer service and technical support, to low-cost
solutions and product development. “ Lamb said. “The SGIA EXPO gives us an ideal forum to present the latest in wide and grand format offerings and
our comprehensive business approach to the industry."

Global Imaging Inc., the nation’s leading value added reseller and integrator of wide and grand format printing systems, has been named the exclusive
U.S. distributor of REXframe, announced Tara Lamb, president of Global Imaging. REXframe, whose corporate headquarters is in California, is an
innovative manufacturer of reusable textile frame systems. The systems are recyclable, lightweight, high grade billet aluminum display solutions that
are completely customizable in size, shape and lighting choices such as front lit, backlit, single, double, four or eight-sided frames. “REXframe provides
a total solution for any type of indoor fabric display and exhibit graphics from frames to lighting to accessories. They are easy to build, install and reuse,”

utilize this product to create annuity income with their end users. We are excited to introduce this product and to offer our customers an
economical, environmentally-friendly framed display option that will close the loop on fabric printing.”
The versatile aluminum frames come in a range of customizable sizes that are simple, fast and easy to assemble, without the use of tools. The fabric
graphics are easily installed and removed from the frames, offering a less expensive, simple solution to POP displays that change often. Designed to
be compatible with the Octanorm system, the frames connect using a simple locking system or can be wall-mounted, double-sided, free-standing,
suspended, curved or used with an LED light box which uses 60% less power than competitors. Additionally, REXframes are flat-packed making
shipping economical and are easy to install and store, saving valuable storage space.
“REXframe truly brings a whole new dimension to the indoor display industry. These systems are more cost-effective, versatile and easy to use and are
above and beyond anything on the market today. The end result is often impressive and stunning and far superior to conventional signage,” Lamb said.

Global Imaging Offers Asphalt Art Substrates
Global Imaging, the leading value-added integrator of wide and grand format equipment and supplies, announced that it has been chosen to distribute
Asphalt Art, a unique non-slip floor and street graphics film for UV and Latex printers.
Asphalt Art, a 2011 SGIA Product of the Year winner, is a printable and flexible commercial grade, slip-resistant foil-based media that has been designed
to meet OSHA standards for general purpose, anti-slip surface applications and is certified by the National Floor Safety Institute. In addition to being
visually impactful, its single-piece construction does not require a non-slip overlaminate.
This unique media transforms ordinary ground and surface materials such as asphalt, concrete, and stone into stunning canvases, adjusting to uneven
surfaces and withstanding heavy foot and vehicle traffic.
Asphalt Art is the perfect complement to traditional large format graphics for outdoor stadiums, events, concerts, street signage, and retail graphics.
“The patented aluminum substrate technology is extremely durable and can take up to one year of foot and car traffic,” says Chris Cudzilo, director of
supplies for Global Imaging. “It’s easy to apply and easy to remove with no messy adhesives or heat application.
“Our customers have been extremely happy with their ability to place high-impact graphics in unique and demanding places.”
Tom Hopkins, owner of Alphagraphics in Hillsborough, New Jersey, was very impressed with the ease of use and impact of one Asphalt Art installation.
“We did a major hospital event with Olympic athletes to promote Healthy Living,” he says. “Each athlete signed autographs in front of four-by-seven-foot
images that were used to define their location.
“Asphalt Art was very easy to apply and looked awesome. We received many, many great comments and everyone wanted to peel it up and take it with
them. It really made the event special.”
Marcel Medved, business development director for Asphalt Art USA, said they chose Global Imaging to sell the product because of its unique customer
base and focus on media. “We were looking for a partner that could put Asphalt Art in front of a large installed UV-curable and Latex printer base,” he
says. “Global’s specialized focus on providing unique solutions has not disappointed.
