While researching printer options, I looked into sublimation printers as well as Roland DG's VersaStudio BN-20 eco-solvent printer/cutter. I loved that the BN-20 could print on any color of 100% cotton. As an owner of a kid's clothing boutique and as a mom, I look for comfort and quality when buying clothing for my children. I wanted to be sure I offered the same in my store. How easy is it to use? e BN-20 has been a game changer! ere was a bit of a learning curve when it came to preparing the artwork for the VersaWorks R IP software and getting familiar with a new machine, but it has been fairly easy to learn and maintain, and the print quality has been great. You have used blogs and videos to share your produc- tion tips. How have they been received? I love sharing. When I started MM & Co Print Shop, I received a lot of questions about the BN-20 and how I was using it to make my T-shirts. Back then, there wasn't a huge community, so it has been great to see it all grow so quickly! I've been told that my blogs and videos are very helpful for new owners. I am sure I have turned many of my followers into BN-20 owners! My videos that share workflow tips seem to do the best, like this one on how to apply masking tape – https://gpro.link/masking. What do you think sets your business apart from your competition? The marketplace is ver y crowded. I think what sets MMof Philly.com and MMandCoPrintShop.com apart is our values and beliefs. MMof Philly.com is all about celebrating motherhood, which is an important time in a lot of women's lives. Motherhood can be exhausting and challenging, but it is also fun and exciting! MMandCoPrintShop.com has been such an exciting venture for me. In addition to the business' success, I truly enjoy connecting with other crafters and mostly mom- owned small business owners. I believe our products and cus- tomer service are the reason our customers keep coming back. Are you looking to expand any particular areas of your business? Yes! We are planning to expand the range of designs we produce on our BN-20 printer/cutter and possibly add DTG capability as well. Check out our designs at www.mmandcoprintshop.com and www.mmofphilly.com.
