Epson, a global enterprise in digital imaging and printing solutions, recently announced the launch of SC-F130, the company’s first A4 size genuine dye-sublimation Inkjet printer based on the business inkjet platform. The all-new printer comes with a low total cost of ownership (TCO). It is ideal for small-scale photoshop small businesses and start-ups looking to expand their product offering into the promotional goods segment.

The Epson SC-F130 supports large volume ink bottles and is designed for rigid and textile substrates with genuine dye-sublimation ink, producing the highest print quality. Its 140-milliliter ink bottle provides a low-cost alternative to cartridge-based inks enabling businesses to run longer, reducing downtime, and increasing productivity.

Various applications of Epson SC-F130 inkjet printer

The SC-F130 is best suited for promotional goods like mugs, key chains, phone covers, and other small merchandise items. The user can also customize garments to create bespoke products such as tote bags, scarfs, caps, aprons, lanyards, and small cushion covers. The dye-sublimation printer features a tilting 2.4-inch LCD screen, Wi-Fi printing, and front-feeding, easy-to-change paper functionality (150 sheets).

Vasudevan LK, general manager – LFP/IE, Epson India, said, “At Epson, we are excited to expand our award-winning product line with the addition of the SC-F130. Our commitment has always been to drive the digital printing market, and we are confident that this product will enable more businesses to expand into the increasingly popular promotional goods market.”

“The SC-F130 perfectly addresses the market need for small size businesses wanting to enter the business with low investment in an easy-to-use dye-sublimation printer that will allow them to create personalized promotional products, fashion apparel, and home décor and furnishing. One of the most feature-rich dye-sublimation printers in the market today, the SC-F130 is convenient to use and delivers high image quality consistently,” he added.

Priced at Rs 39,099, the SC-F130 is a turnkey solution and forms part of Epson’s complete end-to-end Dye-Sublimation printing solution, including inks, driver, and paper, all designed to work together seamlessly. 

Epson’s PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead and a lookup table (LUT) designed for promotional goods and gifts and rigid substrate allow the new printer to achieve optimum quality and consistency levels. With a warranty of 1 year or 6,000 (whichever comes first), the SC-F130 printer assures further peace of mind for users.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
