Hampshire-based T-shirt printing company SixTeeSix has expanded its operation with the purchase of an Epson SureColor SC-F2000 direct-to-garment printer from Epson-reseller Adelco. Established in 1999, SixTeeSix moved into its retail premises in January this year.
“I had been looking at direct-to-garment printing for around three years and could see the benefits to my customers and my business,” says owner Mark Rhone. “I evaluated several printers during that time and decided on the Epson SureColor SC-F2000 direct-to-garment printer, which is fairly new to the market. I’ve worked with Epson printers before and they have a great reputation for good quality and reliability, plus I really like the fact that the whole system – from chassis to print head to ink – is designed and built entirely by Epson.” The SureColor SC-F2000 sits alongside a Schulze Pre-Treatment machine, Graphtec CE-6000-40 cutting plotter and two Stahls heat presses.
