Zanzibar Production counts the likes of Cirque du Soleil and Semaine du Golf as customers

The French company took on the new printer to primarily print on polyester and large-volume production, though the device is also capable of printing both on transfer paper and direct-to-fabric.

Zanzibar is best known for printing on all types of textile media; ranging from surf Lycra and t-shirts, to sweatshirts and flags, for customers including Cirque du Soleil, Semaine du Golf and Derby des Pyrénées.

“I was looking for a machine that is really versatile to ensure greater flexibility and productivity; I wanted to move on from a traditional way of working to a semi-industrial scale,” owner Antoine Maury says.

The HP Stitch S500 offers colour uniformity across the entire machine fleet thanks to the HP Smart Color solution. The 64” machine also features a two symmetrical CMYK printhead configuration and a lens support advance sensor.
