With the rise of textile printing, direct-to-garment (DTG) printing systems are gaining traction in the market. One of the stand-out names not only in DTG but in the global printing market is Ricoh. Ricoh regularly invests in innovative solutions for print service providers. The Ri 1000 is the latest DTG printer from Ricoh. It prints full-color graphics on garments of a diverse array of sizes, colors and materials. Quick-change magnetic platens, available in multiple styles and sizes, provide a variety of print options. All Ricoh Ri 1000 platens are pre-prepared to provide users with hassle free loading and garment protection. Additional benefits include durable steel construction. The printer’s special carriage and table design helps keep garments flat and in place, even while printing at speeds of up to 28 seconds.
Another leading brand in DTG technology is Epson. The SC-F2100 from Epson is capable of producing high-quality full color prints on a range of items. It offers new features such as improved speed and reliability and the ability to create customised print designs. The SC-F2100 is aimed at anyone who wants to add DTG printing to their services, namely production T-shirt printers, online T-shirt retailers, high and low-volume print companies, as well as corporates who want to produce their own branded work wear or promotional items.
