"Our market has been veering away from stocking shelves with inventory that may or may not sell, and the Kornit solution helps our business and customers eliminate that uncertainty and risk. We are the most sustainable textile plant in the world, and Kornit enables us to continue answering market demands in an efficient, responsible manner.”

Poly Pro, which integrates Kornit’s proprietary NeoPoly print technology with the brand’s production strategy, will enable the company to custom-print poly rich garments on demand. GEAR for Sports has implemented three Kornit DTG print systems in the last two years. Having established a process for delivering imprinted cotton garments on demand, and further answering the voice of its customers, the brand decided to expand these capabilities to polyester and poly-blend pieces.

Cindy Olivarez, director of operations – customs and logistics, said: "We’ve been inviting key customers to our facility to demonstrate what the Poly Pro equipment can do, as we expand our digital printing capability throughout our facility.

"Digital printing is an ever-growing business and is key to our business initiatives. Having the ability to print polyester T shirts one unit at a time will allow us to gain consumers who want poly rich garments, and Kornit’s Poly Pro system offers the best possible quality to allow GEAR for Sports to expand our DTG business.”
