GJS and Brother target SMEs with inkjet fabric printer

The dual-platen, white ink-capable device, which is suitable for medium- to high-volume shops, has already enjoyed success in both the US and Europe, according to Brother.

According to a recent report by Pira International, the global market for digitally printed textiles is expected to grow nearly tenfold over the next five years to just under €1 billion (A$1.34bn).

GJS digital sales manager Lukas Picton said that inkjet garment printing offers a more economical solution for smaller businesses due to its speed, price and space requirements.

GJS is so confident with the results from their demonstration printer that they are offering to reimburse customers’ flights if they choose to purchase the machine.

“We believe the results are so fantastic that we will cover the cost of flights for those customers willing to buy the machine,” said Picton.

The introduction of the machine underpins Brother’s push to gain a foothold in the SME print sector.

“We see the GT-762 printers as part of a new generation of SME equipment in Australia that we are hoping to expand on,” says Greg Bernados, national manager for new technologies at Brother.

“Our aim is to offer industrial products at a commercial price – a perfect fit for the Australian market.”

The machine will be showcased at the official launch event on 10 February and is expected to retail for $79,995 including GST, stand and consumables.
