Print & Cut enables you to print pieces on a blank roll and then cut printed pieces, rather than print an entire roll and then cut piece geometry. It's optimal for small and mixed orders, and enables print-on-demand of custom graphics or logos.
Print & Cut provides the following features/options:
Ready-to-print output for various direct digital fabric printers and dye sublimation printers.
Cut data for single-ply cutters.
Cut marks for fabric alignment.
QR codes for automatic loading of cut data.
Label data for labeling machines.
