OKI Announces Partnership with Graphics One as Authorized Reseller of the New pro920WT Printer in the USA
The launch of the pro920WT tabloid/A3 digital color printer supplements the already impressive OKI proColor Series of printers. What makes the pro920WT unique is the inclusion of white toner for graphics, signage and textile transfers. The innovative pro920WT is a cost-effective alternative to screen printing, and is the lowest-cost white toner product available in the marketplace today.
"We are excited about this strategic alliance with Graphics One. They have a strong reputation within the industry and were instrumental in helping develop this product for the textile market," said Rich Egert, General Manager of the Strategic Technology Provider Business Group for OKI Data Americas. "Combining OKI's expertise in developing innovative, high quality, short-run color printing solutions with Graphics One's ability to deliver these products to the textile and specialty graphic markets make this an ideal partnership."
The pro920WT is the lowest-cost toner-based white solution product available to the graphic arts and production market. Available at a list price of $7,495 (US) and operating at fast speeds of up to 31 ppm color/36 ppm mono(*1), the pro920WT employs High Definition (HD) Color printing technology with up to 600 x 1200dpi resolution to deliver clear, sharp text and graphics whether on ordinary paper, or on specialty media.
"The pro920WT is the optimal solution for those requiring industrial high speed transfer capabilities in the direct-to-garment and dye sublimation markets. With lower-cost textile transfer media, including light and dark substrates, combined with lower costs per copy, this product is perfect for our distribution channel," shared Dan Barefoot, President of Graphics One. "We pride ourselves in providing service, value, quality and unique products for this market segment. By supplementing our line of product offerings with the new and innovative pro920WT of the OKI proColor Series, we are continuing that tradition of delivering solutions to our customers in order to meet their unique and evolving needs."
The OKI proColor Series is available exclusively through a select group of partners serving the graphic arts and production market in North America. Each product is available with an industry-leading one-year On Site Warranty.
