Organisers of Sign & Digital UK have noticed a trend developing from amongst their many exhibitors that indicates a growing demand for digital textile printers and finishing equipment in the UK. Many of the key players in this market have spoken to them about their intentions to show wide format digital textile printers, dye-sub calendars and a range of sewing, welding and eyeleting products to finish the print workflow.

Sign & Digital UK will take place at The NEC, Birmingham during April 12-14.

Entry is free to the show if you pre-register on line and here are just some of the ones you will see at the show:

Fujifilm's Euromedia range includes a wide choice of digital textile products, some of which will be on show as part of the innovative, purpose-built Fujifilm 'shop' at Sign & Digital UK on stand H10. Experts will be on hand to demonstrate the latest innovations and visitors will get the chance to apply some of the media products themselves. One such product is StickyTex Heavy FR, a self-adhesive B1 textile that is suitable for wallpaper and other indoor applications. Used for wall tattoos, photos, borders and any large surface wall decorations, it's a polyester textile with a high quality, non-reflective surface for printing by solvent or UV. It's extremely easy to apply and can be re-used many times without residue or damage to the application surface.

Spandexon Stand D40 will divide their stand into zones, one of which is dedicated to digital textiles The Textile & Soft Signage Application Zone is where the trend towards textile substrates for sign and graphics applications will be in clear evidence and where visitors will get ideas of how to take advantage of the growing textile and soft signage market. Spandex will also show you how to make the most of your existing inkjet printer by using innovative textile materials combined with stylish display solutions. They will have Epson's new high-resolution, large format printer GS6000 (64") featuring an 8-colour solvent ink set on the stand, printing on ImagePerfect 2314 textile material.

Printers and cutters from Mimaki's three product ranges - Sign & Graphics, Textile & Apparel and Industrial Products - will be on show on the Hybrid Servicesstand C10and highlights include the UK launch of the Mimaki JFX-1615plus flatbed LED UV printer. Also available to view are Mimaki's integrated printer / cutter range - the CJV30 Series, featuring long lasting outdoor durable inks, with white and metallic options. From the textile range, the TPC-1000 printer / cutter will be shown, paired with a heat press for producing feather flags and other dye sub output to polyester fabric.

Experts in digital textile printing and finishing, Atech will be presenting a “workflow” demonstration for digital textiles every hour on their stand E24, and will also have a “Signmakers Corner” area on stand B34 where you can buy the latest time-saving finishing gadgets for vinyl sign, banners and textiles. Handy finishing tools for the graphics and textiles market including Pneumatic Eyelet machines, Banner Welders and Sewing machines, will be demonstrated alongside two solutions for digital textile printing to suit differing budgets and needs; the first a twinned and proven solution from Roland paired up with a Kala Calendar and the second the ATP Color all–in-one direct to textile printer.
