According to McNabney, “The OKI pro920WT is a world class product. Its ability to produce crisp, colorful, transferrable output for textiles including 
leather opens the door to amazing new custom printing capabilities for me and for my business. I’m just scratching the surface using this exciting 
technology.”

“HEROIC Racing Apparel’s impression of the pro920WT is representative of the user experience,” said Rich Egert, General Manager of the

production, specialty printing and imaging technologies industries. The OKI proColor™ Series of commercial grade digital color printers delivers 
professional, production-quality color output and color accuracy powered by embedded EFI Fiery® and PANTONE® support on select models.

According to Dan Barefoot, President of Graphics One, “The OKI pro920WT is an ideal solution for those requiring professional-grade, high-speed 
transfer printing capabilities on a wide range of substrates. Both the pro920WT and 711WT have been incredibly well-received since their introduction
