Condé Introduces High Speed
Wide-Format Sublimation Transfer System

Mobile, AL - March 30, 2001 - Condé's WFJ500 is the newest and fastest member of the award winning DyeTrans™ family of sublimation transfer systems. The Condé™ WFJ500 Wide-Format System provides an ideal solution for producing large banners and signage or high-volume on-demand specialty items. The system can output at speeds of up to 127 sq.ft./hour @ 540 x 360 dpi, producing full color images in a timely and cost-effective manner. Benefits of this system include speed, low cost of ownership, and high quality output. Businesses that are currently relying on several smaller format inkjet printers can now output to one printer and complete jobs faster and with less expense. Applications include indoor and outdoor soft signage, strike offs, samples, production of custom decorated fabrics, team sports apparel, and more. A complete WFJ500 System includes printer with take-up reel, large format heat press, RIP for Mac® or PC w/color profiles, parallel or Ethernet connectivity, supplies, installation and training. Visit our website at www.conde.com for additional information.

The Condé WFJ500 is a 54" wide (53.5" print width), 1440 x1440 dpi variable droplet inkjet printer with speeds of up to 127 sq.ft./hour @ 540 x 360 dpi (for banner and textiles) and 75 sq.ft./hour @ 720 x 720 dpi (for hard substrate materials). Sublimation inks for the Condé WFJ500 wide-format printer were developed by Sawgrass Systems Inc., and enable graphics professionals to transfer large images onto textiles, soft signage, flags, apparel, carpet graphics, ceramic tiles, skis, snowboards, woods and plastics, banners and a host of promotional products.

Condé DyeTrans™ Sublimation Systems are targeted at the transfer market along with screen printers and the awards and engraving industry as a means to increase revenue through add-on sales. DyeTrans Systems include everything a PC user needs to transfer photographic quality images to ceramic tiles, award plaques, name tags, license plates, luggage tags, indoor signage, picture frames, clipboards, dry erase boards, mugs, caps, apparel, clocks, mouse pads, metal, glass, flexible magnets, and more. Because the systems are clean, safe, and require very little training or equipment, this solution also works well for service bureaus, small businesses, and home business entrepreneurs. Sublimation printing is cost and time effective, allowing single item pricing without setup costs. To use the system, an individual simply creates an image, prints, and presses it for professional results.
