I believe Lawson has some, but they do not appear to come with hoops to put over the shirts?

We have the platen made by Livingston System. it's more expensive than the Epson 14x16 platen, but it has attachments that you can add to that system that are a fraction of the cost of new. So you would have more of an up front cost, but in the long run, it would be less. Outside of that, I'm unsure of any other platens on the market for this product.

Belquette Store shows Product Code: TUCLOCF2000 Availability: Pre-Order.... What is the timing for this to hit the street and would like to see some pics of what the discussed attachments look/function like.

Also, what are the plans to incorporate this platen into the Edge pretreat?

I'll check on the status of the platens, but they should be pretty close to being in manufacturing. As for the EDGE, we went to a single size platen that works across the board. One platen is all that's needed.

I was at Lawson yesterday and they do have platens. They will also custom make a platen if you need them to.

Here is a link to the company actually making these (and other) platens....Livingston Systems

Doubt they would stop without offering speciality attachments.

gresults,

Yes, as Jerid and Harry stated, we are making TucLoc® platens that were developed with assistance from Epson America, Inc.
Printable area and height are identical to the original platen.

As for availability, we currently have the 14 x 16 size only. Harry just got the last one but the next production run should be complete mid-month. The 10x12 and 16x20 size will be available early next year, aiming for February.

The 14 x 16 has drop-in risers for pockets and zippered hoodies available. We are finalizing the drop-in risers for the 10x12 and 16x20 now.

Darren Livingston
