Insta Graphic Wins Two SGIA Product of the Year Awards

November 7, 2019

Insta Graphic Systems, Cerritos, Calif., recently received two 2019 Product of the Year awards from Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA), Fairfax, Va.

The Insta 288 heat press was selected as Product of the Year in the “Heat Press (Tabletop)” category. It is a manual swing-away heat press with 20″ x 25″ platens. It can be used in the sublimation market because of the oversized platen and its ability to generate even temperature and pressure across the entire platen, which is essential for sublimation transfer application, according to the company.

Insta’s SiliconeX custom heat transfer was selected as Product of the Year in the “Media-Heat Transfer Printable” category. SiliconeX is compatible with performancewear, industrial workwear and leisure apparel. It offers stretch, durability and abrasion resistance, and is RSL and Lab Wash tested. Also, SiliconeX can be applied at a temperature setting as low as 285°F.

“We are very pleased to be recognized by our industry peers for Insta’s heat press machines and custom heat transfers,” says Janet Wells, Insta Graphic Systems president. “We’re also proud that this is the fourth year in a row our heat press machines have been recognized as Product of the Year by SGIA.” — D.S.
