If a white shirt print can be done in 20-30 seconds, then a 2nd heat press isn't necessarily going to cover it.

The faster the printer, the quicker the curing the ink has to be. If it's not a quick cure, then you typically double down on heat presses. There eventually comes a point when you need more than two presses. Not only that, but ideally, a conveyer works better because it can be fed by multiple printers instead of 2 - 3 heat presses per printer.

Maybe the state of inks today, 2 heat presses will be fine, but it's only a matter of time, where it becomes more economical and ideal for a faster curing process.

You can also cure a screen print with a flash unit, but it's always more ideal to use a conveyer dryer for production. Direct to garment is moving in the same direction and will require the same output requirements.

No updates on release date as of yet.

We have been busy working on print quality and a little bit on speed. So far, we are excited about the results. We are working aggressively every day to meet deadlines we set for ourselves.

Stop by booth 2124 and check out our progress.

We've built out 50 and they are on the shelf ready to sell! Oh wait, April Fool's has already passed, nevermind.....

Actually, things are going pretty good. We did begin building out 10 more beta units and found they were just taking way too long to build, possibly one per week, not good. So we redesigned a few of the hard to build items (not mechanical, mainly frame structure) to make them go much quicker. With the new design and no wiring, the line can now build 1 per day. Once we have all that correct, then we can scale up to whatever is needed.

So this did set us back, but I'd rather have a delay up front then have to tell someone they have a 16 week wait before they can get a unit. We have preliminary parts for the new build and we should be able to finalize our tweaks to the new build and start on our manufacturing line. Our newest goal is to have our manufacturing line fully ready to go by end of 2nd quarter or beginning of the third. Once that goes fully live, we will have to tweak it as well in order to build and fill the shelves. We are not taking pre-orders, but once we have more defined dates and are taking orders, I'm sure we will be back-logged. My guess is by third quarter, if someone orders, we can ship it the same or next day, just like the Mod1. It will take some take getting the line working like that, but we are pretty close.

As always, don't take my word 100% on this, as you know plans change, but this is our goal. As we progress, if anything changes, we'll try to keep the information out there. This is one reason we've been so tight lipped for so long. It was time to at least make an announcement of what we've been doing for the past couple of years and now the Genesis can't come fast enough!

We do have plans on expanding globally. We would not take a direct order, it would have to be with one of our partners. We are working out the details on this. We don't want to sell to someone overseas and not be able to provide 100% support for them. Obviously we need to work on the USA market immediately, but we do plan on working on building with overseas partners in tandem. Once we have a defined idea of when that will be, we'll be sure to make an announcement.

Thank you for the clarification.
That will be the longest waiting of my life, like a child with Santa Claus.

I hope you will found a serious partner. But that is good to hear Europe is a future target.
