Introducing the Epson SureColor F2000 Series

SCF2000SE Color Edition [4-color]
SCF2000WE White Edition [5-color]

Designed using the latest advancements in performance imaging, like our purpose-built Epson PrecisionCore™ TFP® print head, along with our all-new garment ink technology – Epson UltraChrome DG – the SureColor F2000 series will become the new benchmark in high-performance garment imaging.

The Rumors Are True

For over three years, Epson dedicated a team of mechanical, chemical, and software engineers to create an all-new imaging technology dedicated for printing directly to garments. This endeavor allowed us to rethink everything and ultimately design a garment printer the way it was meant to be.

 

Features & Benefits

The all-new Epson® SureColor® F2000 series was created with one objective in mind — making a killer T-shirt. Every aspect of these printers, from the printer mechanism to the ink delivery system, was purpose-built to deliver industrial-level production speeds, image quality, and reliability to redefine direct-to-garment (DTG) imaging.
