In celebration of the start of the new football season - kicking off the weekend of 30th July and Saturday 6th August respectively - the nation’s first ‘92 Club’ shirt has been designed by concept kit designer Andy Slater, AKA Xztals. Featuring a combination of over 100 unique colours from each team, this one-of-a-kind football shirt perfectly showcases the colour precision and accuracy of the Texart XT-640 printer.
Developed specifically for dye-sublimation transfer printing, the Texart XT-640 is a next generation machine that delivers outstanding print quality and speed on long print runs. Promising unrivalled colour quality with 7-droplet technology, the printer also offers 4-colour high-speed printing or 8-colour printing for a wider colour gamut and smooth colour gradients.
Stephen Davis, EMEA Marketing Director at Roland DG commented, “Launched in time for the highly anticipated 22/23 season and during a very memorable year for football, it is the perfect way to highlight the capabilities of the Texart XT-640, which is specifically designed to provide super quality with vibrant colour technology for sportswear, sports apparel and sport accessory manufacturers."
