Owing to high growth during the last 12 months Blackburn-based Inkthreadable has purchased a Kornit Storm Hexa from Amaya Sales UK and taken the decision to move into premises four times larger than previously occupied.
The Storm Hexa was installed in August and will be used alongside 10 Polyprint Texjet printers currently in use.
As well as this, to meet the high demand for drop shipping custom printed clothing and accessories, Inkthreadable is also investing in new bespoke web-to-print order management and integration software. Since April 2016, Inkthreadable has integrated with two major worldwide e-commerce platforms, Shopify and WooCommerce, and integrations for more e-commerce platforms are already in development.
Alex Cunliffe, managing director of Inkthreadable, said: “The past 12 months has been both intense and exciting for Inkthreadable. We didn’t expect the growth we’ve seen, or the volume of orders that came with it, but our team has risen to the challenge and we’re now ready to push forward with new technologies to offer services above and beyond what our customers expect.
“Our new premises are huge, with plenty of room to expand, but the new hardware and software we’re bringing on board is what really excites me. The bespoke order management system will completely overhaul the way we handle order processing, allow greater transparency of orders statuses for customers, and new e-commerce platform integrations will give current and future customers flexibility in the way they use our services.”
