Next Generation Aqueous Inks For Textiles
Start Faster, Run Longer and Print Better
Everything you’ve been asking for.
DIS has spent the past 4 years getting deep into the textile ink business. Talking with the biggest printers in the industry. Working with manufacturers. Testing in our US laboratories, re-formulating, testing again. Checking all the boxes the perfect ink set needs to check.
First, we checked the boxes related to hardware and are compatible with the most advanced printheads in the industry.
Ricoh G5 – WITH optimized waveform
Ricoh GH2220/2420 heads
Mastering the latest print heads means with also produced the highest impact colors. We heard that as needing the blackest blacks, the whitest whites and the ability to add for specific applications.
High Impact Colors
Then we addressed how the inks impact DURABILITY and Operational Efficiency of those printheads and then checked more boxes.
Maintains Nozzle Integrity
The lower maintenance that comes from using DIS – 250 Mid-Viscosity Inks for direct to garment printers, because of better stability, jetability and nozzle integrity – means time saved. It means less printer down time. It means more shirts printed. It means fewer issues and more profits.
And we developed the
The Perfect Drop – created by the wave form and unique ink properties – means that more of the ink lands on the shirt and less gets dispersed into the air, and onto your encoder strip.
The Perfect Drop hits the same spot on your textile over and over again – that means that you can lower the resolution and print FASTER without compromising print quality.
It’s less labor. It’s faster.
It reduces maintenance.
And that all contributes to the:
Hot Start Technology
One of the most common complaints we heard while working with large users is the wasted time for startup. The time between when you turn on the lights in the shop and print your first shirt. With these inks… how fast can you run?
Fewer head cleanings and flushes mean you’re printing more shirts more often and making more money. [it’s worth saying again]
Shortest Cure Times
Of course DIS inks are compatible with both heat press and tunnel dryers for curing. And those times are the best in the business.
But NONE OF THAT MATTERS…
…if your customer experience isn’t just as amazing too.
End User Experience
CMYK* and Ultra White
11% Wider Color Gamut
The print quality is clearly, beautifully and consistently amazing. So every customer will love the look and feel of the end product.
And just as you’d suspect from a company that spent so much time and attention on the Inks and Pretreatments they wash and wear incredibly well.

But we checked a box that no one expected.
Stretch-ability. Elasticity. Flexibility.
And that’s what our
mid-viscosity inks deliver.
If a design is more flexible, more stretch-able, it will wash better, wear better and especially LOOK better.
There’s no better ink set for YOUR customers than the
DIS-250 Mid-Viscosity Inks.
That was our goal when we developed the
DIS – 250 Ink set. And we did it.
