Following hot on the heels of last week’s textiles launch, Epson has now unveiled its first ever A4 dye sublimation printer, the SureColor SC-F100.

The company says the printer, which makes use of Epson PrecisionCore MicroTFP printheads, is aimed at small businesses and start-ups looking to expand their product offering into the promotional goods sector.

‘Following on from the hugely successful SC-F500 launched in 2019, the SC-F100 is a great new addition to Epson’s dye-sublimation line-up,’ said product manager Tom Owers. ‘It will enable more businesses to expand into the increasingly popular promotional goods market. Users don’t have to be experts to operate the printer – print jobs can be sent via Wi-Fi using Epson’s dedicated driver. With the new Epson Cloud Solution PORT platform also enabled, users can keep an eye on print job costs and track usage over time.’

The SC-F100 has 140ml refillable ink bottles and a 2.4 inch colour LCD screen. Epson says that it is ‘perfect’ for producing promotional and personalised goods such as mugs, key fobs, phone covers and other small merchandise items, especially when desk space is at premium. The company adds that it also ‘meets the needs of textile producers who want to create bespoke products such as caps, aprons, lanyards and small cushions.’
