As a screen printing or other apparel decoration business owner, it is very likely that at some point, you’ve had a customer request that you could not fulfill in-house. Maybe it was somebody looking for embroidered hats, or a little league coach requesting a small print order of 2 dozen dry-fit jerseys for his team. Chances are, you had to either refer that business to someone else, or outsource it, taking a big chunk out of any potential profit for the sale.

Melco is proud to participate and sponsor a team for the 2018 JDRF One Walk at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds near Denver, Colorado. JDRF was established to help fight Type 1 Diabetes, a disease that affects about 1.25 million Americans. The purpose of this event is to raise awareness and help fund research for prevention and a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
If you own a screen printing business, or have any interest in embroidery or selling printed t-shirts, then you need to know Melco. Based in the U.S., Melco is known for its high-speed commercial embroidery machines and digitizing software. However, with increasing demand for direct to garment printers and vinyl print/cut machines, it just made sense to expand the product offering to include the SureColor F2100 from Epson, and a selection of vinyl print/cut machines from Roland.
Lots of activity at Melco in September! In case you missed it:
At NBM Denver, we launched the new embroidery clamping system, Melco Fast Clamp PRO. This system is available for pre-order now, shipping in early October.
We now carry Roland Print/Cut and Vinyl Cutting Systems. Check them out here: http://www.shopmelco.com/category_s/205.htm
A few years ago Epson introduced the finest direct to garment printer in its class, the Epson SC-F2000. It took the industry by storm, and quickly carved out a space in the DTG niche. Over the past few years it has become the industry standard by which all others are judged.
With a strong background in leadership and global business development, Dale Sanders is well suited to help bring Melco to the next level in the global apparel decoration market. For nearly 30 years, Dale held various positions with Briggs & Stratton, most recently as Vice President/General Manager of the commercial Jobsite business. His experience leading global strategic development, creating and executing sales plans, product development and leading engineering development and design efforts will help Melco maintain and grow as the leader in innovative solutions.
The latest evolution of Melco embroidery machine technology, EMT16 PLUS has all of the standard features and functions that made EMT16 great, but with enhanced processing power that really unleashes the full potential of the machine. Also, Melco is shaking things up with an industry-leading 6 year limited warranty. “We feel confident in expanding our warranty program,” said Melco’s new President and Managing Director, Dale Sanders.
Melco Now has the Largest Epson SureColor F2000 Direct to Garment Printer Training Network in the Nation.
Proper training for any direct to garment printer is essential to business success. Melco has the entire U.S. covered, including Alaska and Hawaii.
Since late 2014, Melco has been a leading distributor for the Epson F2000 Direct to Garment Printer. A quickly expanding customer base has created demand for additional certified trainers.
