Improvements
The limit of print width sometimes forced us to print in an inefficient way. Inefficient imposition caused waste of materials and raised cost challenges.
Now, print width of 3.2m enables us to print large signage at one time now, including the finishing width for post print processing. Faster printing generated some cushion on the delivery schedule.

We wanted to introduce to our studio a textile printer that allows to express envisioned ideas more easily than honzome-dyeing, silk screen and digital textile printing.
With the user-friendly sublimation transfer, we gained the ability to visualize free imaginations directly on textiles, being free from design limitations. We can print it on site and immediately start sewing, which is convenient for workshop and well-received by beginners.

Improvements
We have operated full-color digital printing, mainly of sublimation transfer. However, as it can print only on polyester, we have been unable to respond to customers' requests for print on natural materials.
With the sublimation transfer printer that allows printing only on polyester, we used to fail to receive orders for print on natural materials, which is now possible. Supporting wider range of materials allowed us to receive order of new products.

Seeking for an edge as a textile retail shop
We succeeded in enhancing our ability to respond to diversified customers' needs by small-lot production of original textiles with shorter delivery time by inkjet printing. For bulk orders as well, producing a small quantity of samples allows us to drive business negotiations smoothly, which raised the order ratio.

Improvements
We hope to realize digitalization so we can respond to a wider range of needs utilizing the hand textile printing techniques.
As the device does not need plates, it can handle small-lot production of diversified products, which realized shorter production time. Unlimited number of printed colors widened the scope of design possibilities.

Improvements
Reduction of cost, including the time and money taken for outsourced trial printing, and exploration of possibilities of textile design that has many restrictions.
In-house trial testing has resulted in cost reduction in terms of time and money and in improved proposal quality. Digitizing opens up limitless possibilities for new textile design expression.

Improvements
Subcontracting the production of small decals, seals and business proposal dummies in minor quantities is often comparatively expensive and inefficient. Looking for small cutting plotters to process such knickknacks.
Major cost reduction on minor lot production with CFL-605RT. Extremely handy and easy to use. Internal production facilitates the perception of progress from production to shipment, greatly reducing in-corporate stress. Additionally, CFL handles the troublesome hand-crafting of planning samples, freeing the marketing personnel from the task and enhancing business efficiency not to mention the proposing power.

We would like to deal with a small-lot production of goods. Moreover, we also would like to produce packages associated with them in-house.
Adoption of UJF-6042 and CFL-605RT has enabled us to in-house production. CFL-605RT is utilized not only for packages production but also for the manufacturing of variant seals. Our rate of acceptance of orders has increased sharply by making and submitting one sample.

Improvements
Although we have outsourced the manufacturing of button badges and pasteboards to subcontractors (for offset printing and punching processes), it took a lot of cost for us to deal with work operation of a small-lot production.
Introduction of CFL-605RT and a laser printer enables us to realize reduction of manufacturing cost by a factor of 10 and a significant reduction in delivery time. Furthermore, our scale of business is expanding by introducing UJF-6042MkII and producing acrylic key holders in-house.

Challenges
Improvements
When a roll-type small cutting plotter was used, media setting was difficult and thus preparation was time-consuming. We also wanted to increase the cutting accuracy.
CFL-605RT has higher accuracy and easier setting than the roll-type counterpart, making the downtime very short. Since the cutting speed is also fast, time loss and media loss are significantly reduced. The sense of “quick creation and show” becomes effective in up-selling during proposal phase.
