The direct-to-garment printers allow Sticker Mule to print brand-quality custom t-shirts and ship them in three days or less. Sticker Mule purchased the printers earlier this year in anticipation of growing demand for brand-quality custom printed t-shirts.
“Our goal is to quickly take over the custom t-shirt market with an insanely high-quality product. Epson’s incredible t-shirt printer is a big part of why we already are shipping more than 50,000 custom t-shirts per month,” says Sticker Mule co-founder and CEO, Anthony Constantino. “Epson’s commitment to quality and innovation resembles our own and that's why we bet big, and correctly, on them enabling us to deliver a level of quality that the t-shirt world hasn't previously seen.”
Leveraging a direct relationship with Epson, Sticker Mule purchased and installed Epson’s industrial SureColor F3070 direct-to-garment solution to help turn any design into a brand-quality custom t-shirt with unmatched print quality that is crisp and detailed. The SureColor F3070 is Epson’s first direct-to-garment printer to leverage dual printhead technology and a bulk ink pack system, coupled with features such as an automatic garment thickness adjustment and an ultra-durable linear rail system, it was built to produce hundreds of shirts per day, and is an ideal solution to meet the growing demand for custom T-shirts.
“Epson is proud to work with Sticker Mule and install such a record-breaking number of direct-to-garment printers in its Amsterdam production facility, playing a role in the company’s ability to grow. Together with Sticker Mule, our partnership and collaboration help to deliver best-in-class solutions to meet their customers’ needs and deliver the highest quality products. We are pleased that Anthony and his team selected Epson and are excited to continue our partnership with a market leader in the space,” says John Meyer, director, Commercial Sales, Prof. Imaging Sales of Epson America.
The ongoing strategic relationship between Sticker Mule and Epson included mutual visits to company headquarters. Epson’s chairman, CEO and president traveled from Japan to Amsterdam, N.Y. to meet the Sticker Mule team and learn more about the Sticker Mule facility in Amsterdam, NY. Likewise, Constantino and senior Sticker Mule leadership have visited Epson in Japan. The purchase and installation of the printers continues the ongoing strategic relationship between the two companies, which is rooted in a shared commitment to providing the highest quality service and products to their customers. In addition to the DTG printers, Sticker Mule also leverages a large fleet of Epson SurePress digital label printers and SureColor S-Series solvent printers to produce their flagship custom label, signage, and sticker products.
