Custom Gateway are bringing the world of Mass Customisation and On Demand Fulfilment to Print Week Live, 8-9 March 2017, at the Wasps Arena, Coventry.
The garment decoration industry is seeing how moving to an on demand model for smaller orders and one-offs is a very lucrative market to get into and the machine manufacturers are ensuring their products are built to enable this.
The new collaboration between one of the global market leader in digital textile printing technology and Custom Gateway has meant that printing manufacturers can offer an all in one solution with every machine sold. It is designed to assist with the great number of orders for ‘one unit’ offering a complete end to end workflow.
The end to end system will allow for any order placed via a website, point of sale in store kiosk or a third party system to all be routed into one workflow in Custom Gateway’s Order Management System. Barcoded picking stickers allow easy identification of the order information. By scanning the barcode, this will automatically load the print ready artwork file which will be generated with the relevant machine settings for the base garment type, style and colour. Another scan point once the print has been dried prints off the packing note and updates the website the order came from and also the customer who placed the order.
As our objective is to ensure the cost effective production of mass customised products we have developed a close working relationship with many leading printer and hardware suppliers to ensure the artwork files we create can be easily produced with the minimum of human intervention. Take a look at just a few Machine Partners here.
