RA Smart to run HP Stitch open days
Friday, November 1, 2019
RA Smart will run two open days this month to showcase the HP Stitch range of digital dye-sub printers.
The open days, on 12-13 November, will run at the exclusive UK Stitch reseller's premises in Macclesfield, Cheshire.
Visitors will benefit from a factory tour and be able to view the company’s commercial textiles printing operation covering traditional screen printing, silk weaving and the digital print department, as well as every type of textiles print process in action, including acids, re-actives, pigments and disperse dyes.
In a purpose-built room, the company will demonstrate the HP Stitch’s finishing capabilities, including silicone edging for tensile textiles displays and home furniture manufacture.
Experts will also be on hand to advise visitors on textiles print choices and materials.
RA Smart managing director Magnus Mighall said: “We spoke with numerous printers, signmakers and display professionals looking to expand into printing textiles and listened to what they perceive as barriers to entry. The biggest barrier being that suppliers very rarely truly understand what it is like to run a successful textile print business.
“We’ve been successful for over 20 years and supplied equipment and solutions all along the way, so we’ve already lived through the problems, and are thriving.
“We want to share this knowledge and our skills to help print service providers make the best textile printer choice for their business.”
