The Brother GT-3 gives us that flexibility to produce any design with the high quality that our customers appreciate.
Think Your T-Shirt / T’s 4 You is based in San Diego County, California, specializing in custom garment printing. The business, owned by Neal and Claudia Hicks, caters to corporations, local businesses, and individuals who are seeking small to large quantity t-shirts.
The shop was using a Brother 541 digital garment printer but had a high demand to produce t-shirts with white ink. When the GT-3 was introduced, Think Your T-Shirt/T’s 4 You asked to get one of the first models in the United States.
The GT-3 was delivered to the shop in May 2012. “We were one of the first shops in the United States to install the GT-3 and the first shop west of Florida.” “White ink is a must for us. We were really asking Brother for it. We had orders coming in with customers in need of dark printed garments. I was pushing for that machine. Since our installation, we’ve been very pleased with our Brother GT-3 digital garment printer. It is easy to run and prints beautifully. It is a great fit between our company and Brother.” “White ink is a must for us,” says Claudia Hicks. “We were really asking Brother for it. We had orders coming in and customers requesting it. I was pushing for that machine. This is due to the eco-friendly inks we have chosen to use.”
“We are very pleased with our Brother GT-3 digital garment printer. It is easy to run and prints beautifully. It is a great fit between our company and Brother.”
“We were one of the first shops in the United States to install the GT-3 and the first shop west of Florida to receive it. We were able to provide Brother and its engineers with feedback on the machine. The engineers and support staff as well as our distributor contacts have been very helpful and prompt to respond when we have had questions or needed guidance. Thanks, Brother, for all your assistance with our GT3 printer.”
Since then, they’ve added some updates that make the machine simpler and easier to use. There is a new pretreatment method and the computing is simplified.”
“Our customers are very happy with the products we have created with our GT-3 and have given us good positive feedback”.
“We’re keeping our new GT-3 very busy. There have been times when we know that in the future we will need to purchase of an additional machine.”
“Our customers like the fact that the printing we create with the GT-3 uses earth-friendly, Oeko-Tex®; certified, permanent inks applied directly onto the fabric. We’re in southern California where being environmentally friendly is very important.”
“We are very proud to be partnering with Brother. We feel that we are pioneering one of the latest technologies in garment printing providing a high level of comfort wear.”
“The key to our success is our passion. We are passionate about what we sell and are proud of what we produce. We have enjoyed working on shirts for many years. We started out painting and drawing on them by hand. Our business eventually evolved to where we acquired the Brother 541 digital garment printing equipment. Having the new GT-3 only makes us more passionate to share our work with customers.”
“Our business is built on providing custom wear at a reasonable price, producing large or small quantities. We provide custom printing for special occasions, holidays, Mother’s or Father’s Day, graduations, anniversaries, and other occasions. We are also a firm believer in fundraisers to help a good cause. Our company can print any quantity of shirts for a customer’s team. The Brother GT-3 gives us that flexibility to produce any design with the high quality that our customers appreciate.”
