CHICAGO (PRINT, Booth #1231) – Sept. 9, 2013 – Today, Epson America enters the direct-to-garment (DTG) printing market with the introduction of two all new, purpose-built direct-to-garment inkjet printers poised to become the new benchmark in high-performance garment imaging – the SureColor® F2000 Standard Edition and the SureColor F2000 White Edition.
Engineered by Epson from the ground up, the new SureColor F2000 Series printers deliver industrial-level production, image quality, and reliability. With the ability to print directly onto garments – t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, tote bags, and more – ranging from 100 percent cotton to 50/50 fabric blends, the SureColor F2000 Series offers additional revenue opportunities for garment print shops of any size.
The SureColor F2000 Series printers leverage Epson UltraChrome® DG ink technology – an all new, garment ink formulation developed specifically for the Epson MicroPiezo® TFP® print head delivering precise and repeatable performance, image quality, and high reliability. The Epson SureColor F2000 Standard Edition is a high-speed CMYK-only model and the Epson SureColor F2000 White Edition offers the added benefit of white ink for printing on dark or color fabrics.
“For more than three years, Epson dedicated a team of mechanical, chemical, and software engineers to create an all-new imaging technology designed for printing directly to garments,” said Larry Kaufman, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “Delivering superior print quality and reliability to generate more revenue, these DTG printers offer versatility and customization for high-profit, short-run jobs.”
Engineered from the ground up for industrial-level production, the Epson SureColor F2000 Series offers advanced features for the direct-to-garment industry, including:
The SureColor F2000 Series printers offer a standard Epson PreferredSM Limited Warranty, a one-year program that includes toll-free advanced telephone access Monday through Friday and usually next business-day on-site service in the unlikely event of any hardware failure.
The Epson SureColor F2000 Series printers will be available in the U.S. in January 2014 through Epson DTG Authorized Professional Imaging Resellers. For more information, visit proimaging.epson.com.
