Epson is promising two new large-format printers will be unveiled at Fespa Global in May, but is for now remaining tight-lipped on the detail. There is also an expectation of new commercial printable materials, including faux leather, and of new photo papers for users of Epson T series and P series machines.
The Epson stand will be production focused but include examples of work produced by university fashion and textiles students.
