Simvol is Russia’s largest producer of flags and state symbolic textile-based signage. For the football world cup which is one of the most important sporting events in the country, they completely relied on Mimaki digital textile printing to produce flags and banners. Founded in 1996, Simvol is located in Kropotkin, Krasnodar Territory, and has sales offices in all major Russian cities. The company recently added a Mimaki JV300 to its fleet of Mimaki printers to supplement its business growth.
“Simvol was one of the first companies in Russia to adopt heat transfer dye sublimation printing technology, said Sergey Babenko, the company’s CEO. “We worked with Smart-T, a reseller to the industry, to determine the best printing solution for our needs. Not only did we transition much of our production from screen-printing to heat transfer dye sublimation several years ago, but we were also creative in the use of our existing screen-printing equipment to add unique finishing to our dye sub flags and signs. Plus, we also offer embroidery, applique, fringe and other embellishments to set our flags apart from the competition.”
Mimaki JV300 Series large format, high-speed inkjet printers use gamut-extending eco-solvent inks that enable large format prints such as anything from fine art reproduction, wall décor and stunning backlit, to vehicle wraps and outdoor displays or dye sublimation inks to create vibrant wearable textiles, unique home fabrics or soft signage.
The JV300 prints at up to 105.9 square meters per hour at a print resolution of up to 1,440 dpi. Eco-solvent inks are available in nine colors including white and orange, while dye sublimation inks are available in six colors.
