“We have been in the wide-format print industry for over 18 years and moved into the dye-sublimation and textile printing industry 10 years ago. Since then we have grown to become one of the largest print providers of sports uniforms for all sport modalities in Brazil and have a whole team dedicated to quality, transparency and meeting the needs of our customers.
For us, we had to find a solution that works for all our printing needs, especially textile that gives the kind of color our customers expect and color that doesn’t change over time. Only ONYX Thrive gave us the tools to prove our color output to our customers with ColorCheck. Our files were of better quality in ONYX and we still saved ink even with more saturation.
This is just one thing though, we also get to RIP more files faster than ever before, use Swatch Books for specialty named colors which cuts down our production time and the fact we can edit jobs from within ONYX instead of using a design software means we saved even more time, improving our output capacity to take on more clients.

“Our core business has grown to include home décor, textile, producing everything from signs, banners and car wraps to full interior design including flooring, tiles, curtains and wallpaper…We needed software that could run all our different machines with excellent color. We tried other RIPs and couldn’t hit color consistently which is why we moved to ONYX.”
“Industria Graphica FG is a family business that started in offset printing with our founder Giovanni Citro working in photolabs in Milan in 1969. We moved to Salerno and as technology advanced, like many offset companies; we moved into digital inkjet and bought our first RIP in 1999 when I was just 14 year’s old, learning about digital inkjet printing from my father.
We’ve made large investments into our company since then with a number of new machines including roll-to-roll and flatbed using eco solvent and UV. Our core business has grown to include home décor, textile, producing everything from signs, banners and car wraps to full interior design including flooring, tiles, curtains and wallpaper.
With so many machines and diverse printing, we needed software that could run all our different machines with excellent color. We tried other RIPs and couldn’t hit color consistently which is why we moved to ONYX. We started with ONYX PosterShop and moved to ONYX Thrive two years ago.
