EFI has released its Fiery Textile Bundle, a set of design and production workflow solutions for use with EFI Reggiani digital inkjet printers.
The bundle includes new Fiery DesignPro Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop plug-ins to create textile designs and the newest Fiery proServer digital front end.
Efi says the Fiery DesignPro provides the ability to accurately match colours to the printed result, share colour palettes across the design team in real time, design professional repeat patterns and create multiple colour ways from one design. The plug-ins work as part of designers’ environment within Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, resulting in reduced learning curves and shorter design time, according to EFI.
The bundle also includes the new version 6.5 of the EFI Fiery proServer digital front end, an advanced offering for wide, and superwide, format inkjet printers. EFI says major textile brands use the proServer for sampling because it offers colour consistency in the production workflow with colour profiles that they can use across the design and production process.
Adele Genoni, vice president and general manager at EFI Reggiani, says “The Fiery Textile Bundle brings valuable new tools to further automate and streamline the design and prep process for EFI Reggiani customers looking to stay on the leading edge of innovation.
“Now, with this bundle, including the newest Fiery proServer, Reggiani customers get the proven, high-end advantages Fiery technology offers so they can be more efficient, more productive and more profitable.”
EFI says quality, productivity and usability Version 6.5 of the Fiery proServer includes textile-specific capabilities such as support for multiple ink types and colour technology to ensure print quality with saturated black, fine details and smooth gradients. It adds that superior half-toning technology keeps pastels and light tones clean, and reduces graininess in highlights and large solid areas.
The company says the new version supports digital production operations in direct-to-textile and transfer printing, plus it provides the production tools to handle step and repeat, changes in fabric dimensions during production, and brand colour accuracy.
Introduced at the recent ShanghaiTex tradeshow, the Fiery Textile Bundle form part of what the company calls the comprehensive EFI ecosystem that includes EFI Optitex 2D/3D design software, and EFI Reggiani digital printers such as the new Reggiani Vogue direct-to-textile printer, which also made its debut at ShanghaiTex.
