(PRESS RELEASE) WINSTON-SALEM, NC — Hanes Branded Printwear today announced the launch of its breakthrough PrintNOW technology, a game-changing advancement in direct-to-garment (DTG) printing that makes the new Hanes Perfect Pre-treat Tee ready to print right out of the box. PrintNOW technology cuts DTG production time by approximately 40 percent, eliminating the need for printers to apply pre-treat.
“We are transforming how printers handle DTG printing, streamlining the process in significant ways,” said Rachel Newman, vice president and general manager of Hanes Activewear. “DTG with PrintNOW is truly direct-to-garment right out of the box. As a result, this innovation saves printers time and money, two big wins for printers trying to deliver quality printed apparel to their customers efficiently.”
PrintNOW technology has several benefits for printers, including:
- It eliminates human error – treatment is already evenly applied across the entire surface of the garment.
- The tee comes ready to print anywhere on the garment – front, back, neck, sleeves.
- It reduces overhead costs associated with pre-treating.
- It trims three minutes per shirt from the traditional DTG process.
- The savings and efficiencies allow printers to scale their output volume and grow their business.
“The Hanes Pre-treat Tee is a great option,” said Ed Levy, director of software technologies and marketing for Hirsch, which sells both Epson and Brother printers. “A fully pre-treat T-shirt reduces the labor and consumable costs associated with the DTG process, especially for multi-location prints.”
The Hanes Perfect Pre-treat Tee (Style # 498PT) ticks all the boxes for an “ideal” tee – made with U.S. grown, ring-spun cotton; lightweight fabric with a soft drape; a modern, semi-fitted silhouette; and unisex sizing. It’s available in sizes S-3X in Black, White, Navy, and Smoke Gray.
“I love how the Hanes Perfect Pre-Treat tee shows off vibrant colors,” said Tracey Carothers, owner of Big Frog Custom T-shirts and More in Dunwoody, Georgia. “We tested the black tee first, and our logo just pops off the shirt – soft to the touch and fast to print. We’ve had several people want to buy that t-shirt because it’s so pretty with very high contrast and bright colors.”Advertisement
