Epson announced the arrival of its new direct-to-garment printer, SureColor SC-F2100. The new printer is capable of making high-quality full-colour prints on a range of items including t-shirts, sweatshirts, polo shirts and tote bags.
The Epson SC-F2100 is aimed at small to medium businesses who want to add direct-to-garment printing to their services, such as production t-shirt printers, online t-shirt retailers, high and low-volume print companies, as well as corporates who want to produce their own branded workwear or promotional items.
This new DTG printer provides a complete Epson solution including printer, printhead, ink, software and warranty, meaning the user can be assured that all parts have been designed and extensively tested to work optimally together.
Jason Whiley, director of sales, Epson Middle East: “Our first direct-to-garment printer was a great success, so following it up was always going to be a challenge. With the SC-F2100, however, we’ve managed to improve in every area – it’s faster, higher quality and more versatile, with software that makes it easy for you create your own unique designs. And all of that is backed up with quicker, easier maintenance and a lower targeted TCO.”
Epson’s versatile Garment Creator utility is available for free with the SC-F2100. The software allows you to add text and multiple images, create user presets for image adjustment, and provides a hot folder and CMYK image support.
The SC-F2100 has an auto-maintenance mode with a separate cleaning cartridge to substantially reduce scheduled maintenance, as well as a dust catcher to prevent fluff and dust on the printhead. It comes with an optional fabric platen grip pad and platen grip tool to make garment placement easier.
