Future of Apparel Printing Inks

  • Tell us a little about your role with Nazdar and what is Nazdar’s specialty in our industry?
  • What does the future of apparel inks look like? Where is our industry headed?
  • With the move to PVC free inks, what challenges do printers need to be thinking about and how can they overcome those challenges?
  • What does sustainability look like in the ink world?
  • Why should I be concerned about these PVC initiatives you mention?
  • White inks for apparel printing. Seems like there’s always a “white du jour”. What is your take on this and why so many whites?
  • What about ink matching systems? Why should a printer look at these if they primarily just use ready-for-use-inks off the shelf? What are the pro’s and con’s of the different type of systems?
