Prism Inks’ Sublimation-to-Film (STF) Hybrid Ink Wins PRINTING United Alliance 2023 Pinnacle Award for New Technology

Prism Inks is pleased to announce that Prism Inks’ STF hybrid ink received the coveted PRINTING United Alliance 2023 Pinnacle Award for New Technology. This award is for Prism’s patent-pending new product called STF or Sublimation-to-film.

Open to all PRINTING United Alliance supplier members, the Pinnacle Award competition evaluates products that will be available for sale in 2023. A highly qualified panel of judges across the printing industry evaluated the annual contest’s 160+ entries in more than 58 categories spanning analog, digital, output, and non-output technologies.

According to Amir Ajanee, CEO of Prism Inks, and the Prism Group, “Our new STF technology is truly remarkable new technology and represents the culmination of research and development by the Prism team. STF provides users with the best of both DTF and sublimation. This system allows businesses to create vibrant and durable designs for virtually any fabric while at the same time also being able to do traditional sublimation. STF is a real game changer for both DTF and sublimation output.”

The new STF technology images traditional sublimation transfers but simultaneously allows a user to image virtually all fabrics, in a similar manner as DTF.

The new STF systems include all the printing components needed to facilitate the sublimation-to-film process. This system allows businesses to create vibrant and durable designs for virtually any fabric while at the same time also being able to do traditional sublimation. Additionally, an STF kit will be available for large format printers that does not include the printer itself.

Both the STF system and kit will be available in October 2023.
