Ufabrik once again the material of choice for EFI’s stand at drupa


Electronics for Imaging (EFI), a global innovator in customer-orientated digital printing, has reaffirmed its commitment to using UFabrik textiles for its display, exhibition, and event needs. UFabrik Soft Blackback Textile has once again become its textile of choice for its stand build at Drupa 2024.

Impactful graphics and brand messaging will be printed on UFabrik Soft Blackback Textile courtesy of EFI’s new generation VUTEk FabriVU 340i+ dye sublimation printer. In all, a total of 611 square meters of this printed textile will be used to fabricate tensioned walls, partitions, meeting rooms, counter fronts, and hanging graphics at EFI’s stand (A20-1 & A20-2) situated in Hall 9 of the Messe Exhibition and Trade Centre in Düsseldorf.

Developed to be the ultimate blackback for direct and transfer dye-sublimation applications, UFabrik Soft Blackback Textile is a 100% knitted material with a bright white print surface, anti-scratch black backing, and offers the perfect balance between stretch and softness.

“We are pleased to be working with UFabrik again at drupa,” said Ken Hanulec, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing at EFI. “A great deal has changed since the last drupa eight years ago, but one thing that has not changed is the quality, versatility and sustainability of the UFabrik solutions, which will help us stand out at drupa. Display graphics printed on our new generation VUTEk FabriVU 340i+ dye sublimation printer using UFabrik textiles deliver brilliant, eye-catching graphics that unequivocally demonstrate the value of this unique combination of printer and media.”
