Fisher Textiles, world’s leading supplier of fabric for digital printing, has added three fabric media for SEG and soft signage to its Enviro-Tex fabric line for dye sublimation printing. The newly introduced fabrics are made with 100 percent post-consumer recycled polyester and have a better white point that traditional textiles made from post-consumer waste. Using recycled polyester yarns not only keeps PET bottles out of landfills, it also reduces energy consumption and conserves petroleum resources used to produce virgin polyester.
ET8050 Super Sonic for backlit SEG and banners contain 48.7 recycled PET bottles (500ml) per linear yard. It is a soft, sueded knit fabric that produces excellent vibrancy of print, amplified when backlit. The fabric is wrinkle resistant and can fold to save on shipping and storage costs. It weighs 7.7 oz/sq yd and is flame retardant (NFPA 701). The products are winners of Printing United Alliance’s 2022 Pinnacle Product Award for Media-Textile-Framing Systems (Backlit).
