In launching the SureColor V1060 Epson says it opens up a world of possibilities for businesses to explore diverse offerings to their customers, from promotional items and personalised gifts to industrial prototypes with all the benefits of Epson’s cost-effective, consistent high-quality imaging, and innovative compact design.  This follows the announcement of the F1060 DTG/DTF printer earlier in January.

Differing from the SC F1060, the SC-V1060 enables direct printing onto a vast array of materials, including acrylic, metals, wood, canvas and more with superior image quality, colour accuracy and finely detailed text.
