Epson in vogue

Epson renewed its partnership with fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto to support the ‘Hello Istanbul!’ fashion show this year. The company printed out 15 of Yamamoto's creations for the event. It spent four weeks reproducing the designs with specialist Genesta inks on the Monna Lisa textile printing system developed by Robustelli of Italy and using Epson's inkjet, and on Epson's SureColor F7100 series and SureColor FP-30160 textile printers. 

 

 Sign Away to print carpet with an aerial view of the airport on which moveable 3D buildings

Carpet print takes off

When Heathrow Airport commissioned Creative Triangle to design and install an induction room for all new operational employees, the company turned to Sign Away to print carpet with an aerial view of the airport on which moveable 3D buildings (terminals, control tower etc) and props (airplanes etc) could be sited.

Sign Away put down two layers of ink into the carpet and cured the ink twice with the printer’s UV lamps to give the print more longevity.

The 7.2m wide by 16.1m long ceiling panel, printed on Polyester, is an irregular shape and was printed in sections and stitched together. It is held in place by a wire tension system that attaches to the mezzanine floor. From brief to installation the job took four weeks and this involved sample sign off and print quality and texture sign off. The campaign also included lift doors and ceiling banners.
