Italy-based Durst reports e-commerce web-to-print company Spoonflower recently invested in two additional Durst Alpha 330 Series 5 with pigment printing machines. The fifth-generation printers feature newly-developed software as well as improvements in efficiency, and material handling and diversity. Spoonflower’s platform allows individuals to design, print and sell their own custom-designed fabrics, wallpaper and home décor products. The company’s marketplace offers more than 1 million designs that can be printed sustainably and on demand with no minimums required. One Alpha 330 will be installed in North Carolina, and the second in Berlin.
“Pigment printing is a future technology that we use today thanks to the hard work and strong partnership with Durst,” said Gart Davis, Spoonflower co-founder. “Our collaboration on home decor has been successful; the Alpha produces beautiful fabric with a precise, fine print, a broad gamut, and strong fastness properties, which is why we have invested in two more pigment Alpha 330s.”
