Epson announced the launch of its first-ever A4 dye sublimation printer, the SureColor F-130, a compact digital textile printer developed specially for small businesses and start-ups looking to expand their product offering into the promotional goods sector.

With the footprint of an A4 desktop printer, the SC-F130 is perfect for producing high-quality personalised merchandise items when space is at premium. It also meets the needs of textile producers who want to create bespoke products for customers with more specific requirements.

Genuine Solution
The SC-F130 forms part of Epson’s complete end-to-end printing solution which includes Epson Genuine UltraChrome DS Inks, printer driver and transfer paper, all designed to work in harmony. Further peace of mind is assured with a 1-year or 6,000-sheet warranty, whichever comes first. Notably, with the Epson Cloud Solution PORT platform enabled, users can keep an eye on print job costs and track usage over time.

Outstanding output quality
Heavily reliant on visual aspects, the print quality seen on promotional goods plays an important role when it comes to attracting and garnering attention from audiences. High print quality and output consistency are achieved through Epson's PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead and a Look Up Table (LUT) that's specially designed for dye sublimation printing. Working together, these technologies provide reliability and professional print quality in a compact size.

Variety of print applications
With the consumers’ preferential shift towards personalisation of products, businesses are gearing towards solutions that can deliver versatile, high-quality output efficiently. The SC-F130 brings bright, vivid colours to the production of custom items such as mugs, phone covers, coasters, or bespoke products such as small bags, aprons or cushions.

“Our first-ever A4 dye sublimation printer presents a complete solution for business owners wanting to seize the opportunity in selling custom merchandise and promotional goods. Its superior print quality and colour consistency will help customers address the market’s growing demand for personalisation with peace of mind, which is especially important during this challenging time” said

Dickson Lee, Senior Manager, Commercial & Industrial Department, Epson Malaysia.

The SC-F130 will be available in Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia.
