Rochester, NY, Tuesday, May 14, 2019 --

Today Eastman Kodak Company announced the introduction of Kodak’s KODACOLOR Fabric Inks. Kodak’s fabric inks are unique – leveraging proprietary ink dispersion technology with a 20-year history of ink development and manufacture, bolstered by decades of superior coating technology.

The result is an exceptionally large color gamut, a more reliable high-quality image with outstanding shelf life and a soft, natural feel, as well as better in-printer performance. 

Kodak has partnered with ColDesi, Inc., Digital Ink Sciences and Resolute DTG, among others, to bring Kodak’s impressive ink formulations to their respective hardware printing capabilities, with a goal of delivering superior garment printing results. 

“We have rigorously tested these new inks and are thrilled with the performance,” said Grant French, Business Development Manager for Digital Ink Sciences.

“We are delighted with the performance and stability of these high-quality inks based on our test results,” said Colin Marsh of Resolute DTG.

“The new G4 DTG Printer from Impressions Technology and DTG Digital will be powered by Kodak DTG Inks,” said Scott Colman, President of ColDesi, Inc. in Tampa, Florida. “And our tests prove out just how beautifully they print, and what a tremendous impact they have on reducing maintenance.”

Kodak has been producing and selling digital inks for thermal piezo and continuous inkjet systems going back to the 1990’s demonstrating an ongoing commitment to the inkjet business. Customization of fabrics for garments, accessories, upholstery, soft signage is growing, which represents a significant business opportunity for Kodak. Kodak is pleased to expand into fabric applications with its innovative ink technologies in its KODACOLOR product line.
