Designed to open new doors for garment decorators, entrepreneurs, artisan businesses, and print service providers, the versatile entry-level SureColor F1070 is purpose-built for a range of DTG and direct-to-film (DTFilm) printing applications. The hybrid printer combines outstanding image quality, easy operation and flexible performance in one space-saving package to allow designers to spend more time creating, according to Epson.

“Traditionally, DTG printers have been designed for professional print shops—larger models that are difficult for smaller, entry-level artisans to obtain and integrate into their existing workflows,” says Lily Hunter, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America. “Epson has taken the best of its DTG technology and distilled it into this compact, cost-effective printer, ideal for entrepreneurs and creative professionals looking to bring their unique designs to life.”

Engineered for both DTG and DTFilm printing, the unit features an enclosed design with transparent viewing panels to enhance the printing process, and DTFilm printing capability allows users to go beyond traditional garment printing and transfer personalized designs to a wider variety of materials.

“The new compact SureColor hybrid DTG printer is designed to create new opportunities for businesses, giving them the ability to break into the garment decorating market,” says Hunter.

It also features a PrecisionCore® MicroTFP® printhead with Nozzle Verification Technology and next-generation UltraChrome® DG2 ink with CMYK+Wh. White ink prints on dark garments for enhanced clarity and photographic print quality, and a cartridge-free ink pack system reduces ink replacement frequency to support productivity.

The SureColor F1070 will be available for pre-orders in February and will begin shipping to customers in May through Epson Authorized Professional Imaging Resellers. It also will be on display at Impressions Expo in Long Beach, California from Jan. 19-21 in Epson’s booth, #2233.
