“The SureColor F2100 industrial series and then the SureColor F3070 in-line printing technology really blew us away,” said the author. David TopkinsGotham City Online co-founder. “The SureColor F3070 features compelling features like increased print speed and enhanced functionality. It also has a higher platen height. With larger images, we have seen an increase in ROI due to the speed of this printer.
Gotham City’s SureColor F3070 industrial features have resulted in an increase of productivity when it comes to larger garments and large images. The SureColor F3070 has a new platen height sensor that makes printing on sweatshirt pockets easier than ever.
To streamline workflow, improve efficiency, and provide a scalable solution, Epson DTG printing machines have been integrated into its job pull automation system. “Opening up SDK allowed us to integrate, control, and tie our systems into controlling equipment. It made a big difference.” Jonathan GarrissGotham City Online CEO:
Topkins stated, “Epson printers allowed us to scale the business up as we needed.” The pod-based configuration of the printers allows us to increase our production when there is a spike in demand or peak season.
The SureColor F3070 bulk ink tanks and easy maintenance features also proved to be a benefit for Gotham City’s team. Garriss stated that the SureColor F3070 makes it possible to schedule maintenance so that we can minimize any negative effects on our production. It’s not always down, we don’t always have an Epson technician. It is nice to have that support network from Epson. They can control quality from beginning to ending, from the ink to the parts to cleaning kit.
“The advances that Epson has made enable us to keep our business running,” says Topkins, “We have been happy with Epson products – the machines, consumables and customer service.”
“The Epson DTG Printers were designed to help businesses build reliable, efficient businesses that can print custom content,” stated the company. Tim CheckProfessional Imaging senior product manager Epson America, Inc.
