    Angry Birds Choosing AnaJet
    PLAYPELI in Shanghai, who specializes in designing, producing, and marketing a variety of products inspired by key animation and mobile game brands such as Angry Birds, has selected AnaJet as its Direct to Garment printer for its projects. 

    After carefully reviewing several other direct to garment manufacturers, the executives at PlayPeli have selected the mPower series among other considered printers.  “Before using Anajet printer, I always thought Epson F2080 was the most cost-effective direct-to-garment printer. But I learned much better experience when starting using the Anajet mPower printers,” states Phyrex Ni, Business Development Director of PlayPeli.   The selection of the mP10i and mP5i were granted due to the reliability of the printing during PlayPeli’s testing period.  The product education implemented by the AnaJet team and our distributor in China, Asia Link, has also aided in the selection process for Playpeli’s decision.  “Can you imagine just need a phone call, AnaJet professional technicians will show up in my office to help us in less than 2 hours?” Phyrex Ni explains the difference between AnaJet and it’s competitors “…you need to pay additional charges every month to replace the cleaning device, which is totally not necessary on Anajet printer. Thanks to Anajet advanced technology, this is a big cost-saving for us every month.”

    Working together in a long term commitment, Technical support and Customer Service have been established since the beginning of the professional relationship between AnaJet, Asia Link and Playpeli.  Phyrex Ni points out “Not to mention the Anajet technical expert, John’s visit to our site, with detail guidance and patient answers, which is a great experience sharing and knowledge, enhance to our operators. And of course Josep’s full support makes us feel more confident to fight in the China big market. Thank you Anajet! Thank you John, Josep Domingot, (AnaJet's Vice President of Global Business Development) and Asia Link!”

    The team at AnaJet is excited about this opportunity to work with such a popular brand and look forward to all the future ventures it offers.

     Just like any successful business, Charlie and Brian of POP ATL started with it's basic foundation - vision and motivation.  

    Originally starting in 2012, POP (Prints of Peace) ATL started selling shirts with the screen printing equipment that they had. Eventually they decided that getting a Direct-to-garment printer was their next step to growing their business.  AnaJet wasn't the only DTG they initially considered.  Through diligent research, Charlie and Brian decided to go with the printer and company that provided the best support, AnaJet's mPower machine.

    After purchasing their DTG printer, they flew out from Atlanta to  AnaJet's headquarters in Costa Mesa to attend AnaJet University.  "It was necessary...I'm glad we did because we learned little things like how to unlock the maintenance station..." Charlie admits.  Purchasing their mPower in September 2013, they shortly achieved their ROI in less than 90 days.  

    Using a combination of eCommerce marketing, social media, and properly pricing their products, POP ATL quickly arrived at a fortunate problem that most businesses want --demand exceeded their output from a single printer.  They purchased a second mPower without hesitation.  "AnaJay" and "AJ" are the names that were dubbed to both of the printers they own. Both of which sit comfortably in their own printer room that provides a controlled environment and proper humidity away from the cold temperatures that Atlanta may face during its colder seasons.  

    "It's kind of funny when we tell them 'You don't have to worry about a color limit, you don't have to worry about a minimum' and they look at me like I'm crazy."

    One of POP ATL's most popular deals they provide is their "12 Shirts for $100" deal, being the only t-shirt business that owns a DTG machine in their complex out of the 8-10 similar businesses nearby, POP ATL has the upper hand by being able to offer low-quantity prints for a bargain.  "A lot of people are overwhelmed by getting into the direct to garment market because they're only used to dealing with screen printers and having a limit on colors, " Brian explains "It's kind of funny when we tell them 'You don't have to worry about a color limit, you don't have to worry about a minimum' and they look at me like I'm crazy." The duo explain that owning a direct to garment printer allows them to have this advantage.

    "We've expanded a lot in just a year and half of having the printers" Charlie states.  Having relocated 3 times within a year because of their need for more space, their future plans with AnaJet is to purchase a third printer for mobile printing.  "We're pretty sure within the year we'll be moving again…there has been a lot of expansion and growth and we’ve enjoyed every minute of it"
