Epson has won several 2023 Good Design Awards for its A3 inkjet printers for medium to large business, comprising the Workforce AM-C4000, 5000 and 6000 range of multifunction, photo, and garment printers.

These inkjets don’t use heat to fire ink and consume less power than laser equivalents intended to minimise environmental impact.

The multifunction printers earned high marks for their body design that feature softly rounded corners; while the space-saving SL-D500 series of lightweight and compact photo printers can be installed on narrow shelves or counters, with box styling that allows for up to three units to be placed on top of each other.

The SureColor SC-F2200 series of garment printers can print directly onto t-shirts and other clothes and come in a compact design that makes them easier to install, expand and transport.

Epson has also changed the design of the operating unit for the garment printers, that reduces downtime and improves productivity, which the company said contributes to the digitalisation of the textile printing industry. Epson revamped the design of its previous garment printer in response to feedback from users by lowering the depth of the unit, making installation space more compact. The SC-F2260 is now the standard model in the garment printer series.

The awards are Japan’s leading design commendation system, attracting entries from around the world, intended to discover and promote exceptional designs with the potential to enrich lives.
