Epson has revealed its partners and dealers for the new SureColor F2000 Direct to Garment printer across Australia and New Zealand.
The F2000 is a Direct To Garment (DTG) printing platform for work involving cotton based shirts, caps, bags, and promotional items and is part of the Epson SureColor Fabric series of printers.
The list that contains specialists in their fields across both countries has been carefully selected to give customers the best possible experience when purchasing the printer.
The dealers include Aarque NZ, GJS Machinery, Graphic Arts Supplies, Kayell Australia, SW Graphics and Tajima Australia.
Epson Australia national business development manager, Terry Crawford, said the company had carefully chosen dealers that specialised in their relevant markets and who understood direct to garment technology.
"There are many companies who mechanically alter printers not specifically made as direct to garment machines, and then run into trouble afterwards," he said.
"With the SureColor F2000 the industry now has a purpose built Epson Direct to Garment printer and with these new partners on board an excellent dealer network to support it.”
GJS managing director Greg Stone said, as one of the original distributors of direct to garment printing technology in Australia, we're really excited about the release of the Epson SureColor F2000 DTG printer and having it in our range.
"Having experienced it in our showroom for the last week, we're really impressed by the quality of the output and its speed and we know that it will make an excellent addition to the direct to garment landscape locally.”
Steve Woods from SW Graphics commented welcomed representing Epson Professional Imaging products in Tasmania.
"Tasmania now has local supply, service and support for businesses looking to enter into the profitable opportunities of Direct-To-Garment printing."
Cheryl Cope from Graphic Arts Supplies in South Australia said representing the new Epson SureColor F2000 DTG printer further enhanced the company's position as leaders in inkjet solutions.
"The F2000 is the comprehensive one stop DTG solution the industry has been waiting for," she said.
"It has many advantages over other DTG printers not the least of which include its Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification for safe inks, the fact that you can upgrade the already comprehensive standard one year warranty to three years and its fast and efficient operation."
