Innova Art has launched its Décor Art ES, a new semi-gloss, rough-textured art paper that’s compatible with all eco-solvent printers.
The new product is a 13-mil (260-gm) bright-white paper targeted at production print providers in the open edition printmaking and décor market. Designed to emulate the traditional texture of a rough-surface watercolor paper, Décor Art ES is available in roll widths of 30, 54, and 60 inches x 100 feet on a 3-inch core. Eco-solvent printer compatibility includes Canon, Epson, Mimaki, Mutoh, and Roland.
Daige has introduced Solo, a cold laminator designed to be a one-person finishing system.
Features include top and bottom nip rollers covered with hard silicone, steel cores, automatic take up, spring-loaded top rollers and a heavy-duty motor. A print holder in front makes it easy to laminate long prints, reports the company. The Solo can accommodate boards up to ½-in. thick for mounting prints. It’s comprised of steel and aluminum and is available in 25-, 38-, 55- and 65-in. widths.
Roland has opened its Roland DGA Creative Center—a gallery of innovative applications produced on Roland printers—in the company’s headquarters in Irvine, California. The US gallery joins a network of other Creative Centers that include galleries in Japan, Belgium, Italy, and Germany.
