The Impres line of textile printers is designed for soft-signage printing, they come standard with 2, 4 or 16 Kyocera printheads. The Impres 4180 and 4320 can run on either 4 or 8 ink channels, but the Impres 3180 can only run on 4 ink channels. All these models use CMYK colors and come equipped with four ten-liter ink tanks for specially manufactured inkjet inks by JK Group: DySubli (for transfer paper printing) or Direct S (for direct-to-fabric printing).

JK Group has three independent inkjet ink brands Kiian Digital, J-Teck 3, and Sawgrass Industrial all for digital textile printing.

All the Impres textile printers are compatible with any RIP or workflow software, but they are offered with Caldera GrandRIP+ suite. The Printer software (Impres Soft Signage System) can send e-mail notifications, when ink is running low or a job is completed, directly to your computer or smartphone.

MS Impres line of textile printers are one of the few designed by a printer manufacturer cooperating directly with an inkjet ink specialist and a RIP software company, as a whole.
