Melco equipment requires minimal operating cost, keeping your overhead and labor costs low. Plus, with Melco's flexible financing/leasing options, a brand new Amaya XTS Embroidery system or Epson F2000 Direct to Garment Printer with software, training and warranty plan can be yours for one low monthly payment.
Let's look at a real-world example of ROI with an AMAYA XTS single-head embroidery system:
Purchase 24 caps at a wholesale cost of $1.50 each for a total cost of $36.
With AMAYA XTS, you can embroider those caps in as little as two hours and sell them for at least $15 each. $15 x 24 equals $360. That's enough revenue to easily cover a typical monthly payment for a brand new XTS.
