“The SureColor F2100 industrial series and then the SureColor F3070 in-line printing technology really blew us away,” said Sarah. 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. We have seen a better ROI on larger orders that required larger images due to its speed.
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,” said Jonathan GarrissGotham City Online CEO:
Topkins said, “Epson printers allow us to scale-up the business as needed.” The printers can be set up in pod configurations which allows us to increase production when needed, especially during peak seasons and times of high demand.
Gotham City’s team also enjoyed the ease of maintenance and bulk ink tanks for the SureColor F3070. Garriss said, “The SureColor F3070 lets us schedule maintenance so we can minimize our production.” It’s not always down, we don’t always have an Epson technician. It’s nice to have an Epson support network, having that point-of-contact and being able to control the quality from start to finish, whether it be through the ink or the parts to the cleaning kits.
“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 developed to help companies create reliable, streamlined businesses that print custom content.” Tim CheckProfessional Imaging senior product manager Epson America, Inc.
