The ROQ Hybrid is a fusion between screen-printing and digital printing, combining DTG with Screens. It allows for the speedy screen-printing method to deal with some of the more time-consuming processes, leaving all the colour in charge of digital that offers a larger colour gamut, better resolution options and outputs that you can't find in screen-printing. It also brings the best of both worlds making possible a combination of digital printing with special effects such as flock, foil, glitter, crackle, high density, discharge and more.
When asked about the main benefits of choosing a Hybrid, one of our clients said that by going for a hybrid solution, you open your business to a myriad of options that traditionally were just impossible to do and that, within the hybrid printing market, the wide-format our machine has and high speeds it's capable of doing, ultimately made him decide for yet another ROQ printing solution.
During our interview, he added a more in depth explanation:
“As the print method is digital, complex designs can be printed with ease -for example, photographic prints or very intricate designs which other print methods would find impossible to achieve. The beauty of the hybrid is it is able to print specifics which digital cannot, we can pick out a particular pantone or a part of the design and screen print or embellish, within the same print process, allowing for no limitations including neons, glitters, foils, and all sorts of embellishments within the print. Hybrid screen printing is not limited to just cotton, its versatility allows screen printers to digitally print on almost any fabric, including polyester and synthetic materials.” – basicprints.co.uk
“Why choose between screen printing or digital when you can have both?”
