Sticker Mule invests in Epson’s direct-to-garment printing technology

Sticker Mule, a narrow label and website company to watch in 2022, is poised to become a leader in custom printed t-shirts with the installation of several new Epson direct-to-garment printers. The installation of these printers is the largest in Epson’s history and guarantees Sticker Mule customers the best personalized t-shirt on the market. The strategic relationship between Sticker Mule and Epson complements Sticker Mule’s industry-leading approach to online personalized print products. Sticker Mule is also an established custom label printer that uses Epson SurePress technology.

Direct-to-garment printers allow Sticker Mule to print brand-quality custom t-shirts and ship them in three days or less. Sticker Mule purchased the printers earlier this year in anticipation of growing demand for branded quality custom printed t-shirts.

“Our goal is to quickly capture the custom t-shirt market with an incredibly high quality product. Epson’s incredible t-shirt printer is a big part of why we already ship over 50,000 t-shirts personalized per month,” says Anthony Constantino, co-founder and CEO of Sticker Mule. “Epson’s commitment to quality and innovation mirrors our own and that’s why we bet big, and rightly, on them to allow us to deliver a level of quality the t-shirt world has never seen before.”

Building on a direct relationship with Epson, Sticker Mule purchased and installed Epson’s SureColor F3070 industrial direct-to-garment printing solution to help turn any design into a brand-quality custom t-shirt with unparalleled print quality, sharp and detailed. The SureColor F3070 is Epson’s first direct-to-garment printer to take advantage of dual printhead technology and a bulk ink pack system, combined with features such as automatic ink adjustment. garment thickness and an ultra-durable linear rail system, it has been designed to produce hundreds of shirts per day, and is an ideal solution to meet the growing demand for custom t-shirts.

“Epson is proud to work with Sticker Mule and install a record number of direct-to-garment printers at its Amsterdam production facility, playing a part in the company’s ability to grow. With Sticker Mule, our partnership and collaboration helps provide the best solutions to meet their customers’ needs and deliver the highest quality products. We are delighted that Anthony and his team have chosen Epson and are excited to continue our partnership with a market leader in the field,” said John Meyer, Commercial Sales Director, Prof. Epson America Imaging Sales.

The ongoing strategic relationship between Sticker Mule and Epson included mutual visits to company headquarters. The President, CEO and President of Epson traveled from Japan to Amsterdam, NY, USA to meet the Sticker Mule team and learn more about the Sticker Mule installation in Amsterdam, NY. Likewise, Constantino and senior executives from Sticker Mule visited Epson in Japan. The purchase and installation of the printers continues the ongoing strategic relationship between the two companies, which is rooted in a shared commitment to providing the highest quality service and products to their customers. In addition to direct-to-garment printers, Sticker Mule also operates a large fleet of Epson SurePress digital label printers and SureColor S-Series solvent printers to produce their flagship custom label, signage and sticker products. .
