Garment Creator Software for Direct-to-garment (DTG) Printer

Epson today announced updates to its Garment Creator software for the award-winning SureColor® F2000 direct-to-garment (DTG) printer. The new enhanced software includes a “Use Garment Black” capability for reduced ink usage and an improved look and feel when printing on black garments.

“Our goal when Epson first entered the DTG market in 2013 was to deliver superior print quality, reliability and ease-of-use, providing additional revenue opportunities for print shops of all sizes. The customer feedback and success of the SureColor F2000 to date has been phenomenal,” said Larry Kaufman, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “Now with the addition of our updated Garment Creator software, we are fulfilling our highest priority requests and our customers will be able to achieve new levels of image quality, all the while cutting down on the ink costs associated with imaging in the very popular black garment segment.”

The latest version of Garment Creator software, available for OS X® and Windows®, automatically recognizes and knocks out black areas of an image file and leverages the black fabric of a garment. By simply selecting the new “Use Garment Black” preset, the complex task of trying to mask off these black areas of the image is now done automatically. The end result is reduced ink usage from the elimination of black ink over white ink imaging and a better looking and feeling garment.

Joto, a supplier of digital decorating solutions and supplies for the garment decoration industry, has been using the new Garment Creator software with impressive results. “We’ve been testing the updated Garment Creator software and it’s amazing – it saves ink and cuts down on design time – making it a worthwhile upgrade to the already efficient and high-performance SureColor F2000,” said Dickson Siu, Color Specialist, Joto.

About the SureColor F2000

Engineered by Epson from the ground up, the SureColor F2000 Series printers deliver industrial-level production, image quality and reliability. With the ability to print directly onto garments – t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, tote bags, and more – ranging from 100 percent cotton to 50/50 cotton/synthetic fiber blends, the SureColor F2000 Series offers additional revenue opportunities for garment print shops of any size.

Availability

The new Garment Creator software will be available in late-Jan. as a free download from www.epson.com/support/f2000.
