Advantages of Direct to Garment Printing with Epson F2000:
The all-new F2000 direct to garment printer was created with a purpose—to deliver a machine that helps apparel decorators make money on short-run and one-off t-shirt orders.
The printing process is simple. Load your shirt onto the platen and secure it with the included frame. Then load your graphic into Garment Creator. Size and position the graphic on the shirt, and press print. When the shirt is done, cure the ink with a heat press or convection air dryer.
Start up at the beginning of the day consists of shaking the cartridges for a few seconds, then performing a nozzle check. Once complete, you're ready to print.
Maintenance routines are simple, and most key components can be replaced by the user. This is important because it virtually eliminates the need for on-site technical service. What a cost and time savings!
Every aspect of these printers, from the printer mechanism to the ink delivery system, was purpose-built to deliver industrial-level production speeds, image quality, and reliability to redefine direct to garment printing. MelcoUSA is a distributor of the SureColor F2000 White Edition. This printer is capable of printing both light and dark garments with quality your customers demand and speed that your bottom line will enjoy.
Ink is always one of the main cost considerations when purchasing a DTG printer.
But, as Epson Product Manager Larry Kaufman points out, "When it comes to ink costs, it's about more than just comparing cost per milliliter. It's the bottom-line efficiency of ink usage that really matters.
Because the PrecisionCore TFP printhead, Epson UltraChrome DG Inks, and the color tables in Garment Creator software were developed together specifically for DTG printing," Kaufman explains, "the Epson SureColor F2000 series is highly efficient. It consistently delivers hour-over-hour of sellable production.
Sellable equates to less waste—a few milliliters of ink, along with labor time and the cost of the garment itself," Kaufman continues. "By minimizing waste and reducing customer returns, your business is more efficient and profitable."
The F2000 DTG Printer is backed by a standard one-year limited warranty, including free phone support and usually next-business-day on-site service. If Epson can't solve your problem over the phone, they'll send a technician to you. Everything is covered during the first year: labor and parts, including the printhead. Best of all, it won't cost you a dime.
"I would not hesitate to recommend the Epson F200 to anyone serious about the DTG business!"
"I have been running Epson's SureColor F2000 (white) DTG printer and have printed hundreds of shirts. There is no doubt in my mind that Epson has set a new standard for the DTG industry! The F2000 is my third DTG printer in six or seven years in the DTG business. It far and away outperforms anything else with which I have had experience. Along with Epson's Ultra Chrome Ink, the finished product is truly the best ever. The software is easy to learn and use, providing more options and flexibility than many operators will ever need, yet is intuitive enough for anyone to understand and use. The documentation that comes with the F2000 is superior and can save hours on the phone with tech support and shorten the learning curve greatly. A huge advantage of working with Melco is the availability of on-site service, if needed. While it's a serious investment, I would not hesitate to recommend the Epson F2000 to anyone serious about the DTG business. The others are now obsolete!"
