Sewing machine for banners and textiles

Discussion in 'General Signmaking Topics' started by KingsofWraps, Sep 19, 2019.

  1. What sewing machine do you guys recommend for latex printers? Mainly for double sided banners but something that doesnt scratch gen 3 inks and may be used for latex fabric printing as well.

    I will say that I've been loving my Leister Hemtek ST. Our Juki's don't really do anything anymore. Not sure you can use the Hemtek for flags and such though. Haven't tried that.

    Juki 1560 Double Needle with .5" needle spacing. I used to heat weld but stitch everything now.
     
  5. That’s interesting, one of you like the heat weld and the other likes the Juki. I have Julia I guess I’ll have to get the Hemtek! Maybe you two should do an online debate…

    Stick with your name brand commercial versions. I would suggest along with twin needles to see about getting dual feed (akin to walking foot but better integrated into the machine).
