GJS today announced it has completed the first Australian install of the new Brother GTX garment printer with custom t-shirt printing business Das T-Shirt Automat. The Victorian-based business has three stores located in Melbourne and will integrate the Brother GTX garment printer into its existing workflow to increase production.
“Our philosophy has always been to deliver an exceptional-quality printed product, no matter if our customers are ordering a single shirt at one of our storefronts, or having 200 designs created,” said Ed Redman, co-founder, Das T-Shirt Automat. “By investing in the latest direct-to-garment technology, not only can we continue to deliver on this philosophy, but we can also speed up production and increase our output,” Ed added.
The GTX features Brother’s next-generation printheads that deliver incredibly fast print speeds at a constant 1200×1200 dpi whilst maintaining one-pass printing for all print sizes and the new white ink circulation system and wet capping station both help to reduce both maintenance costs and time.
Brother’s newly developed Innobella Textile Inks deliver a 30 percent wider colour gamut than the GTX’s predecessor, delivering stronger purples, blues and pinks and with the inclusion of 800mb of onboard memory that allows the operator to store up to 100 designs in the printer itself, the GTX can be operated without a PC or USB if needed.
“We have never seen such interest and appetite for a new printer than what we have seen with the GTX,” said Greg Stone, managing director, GJS. “What this demonstrates is that the Australian market is at a level of education and maturity with direct-to-garment technology where it will continue to seek out and embrace newer technology, which at the end of the day is a win for end-users and consumers,” Greg added.
