With all of their equipment, 12 Oz. Collective thoroughly investigated all the options available throughout the industry and intentionally sought out the best solution at each and every step. They comment; “A primary goal for us was to reduce tolerances to their minimum limits and operate on the edge of that limit consistently over time in a full-production environment.
Likewise, we also sought to offload any tasks that could be done better through automation. This allows our staff to focus on aspects of our production processes that humans are best suited for.” By implementing solid solutions to automation, they’ve successfully achieved the best of both, which provides them with more time and energy in their pursuit of quality. “Our partnership with ROQ has played a pivotal role in us achieving our goal,” says the team.
Extreme Screen Prints originally started with MHM equipment. Looking to get something new, and after researching various companies and considering factors such as price, features, and customer reviews, they ultimately decided to take a chance with ROQ. This was in the early days of ROQ, and since they have purchased their ROQ presses and dryer, they have been impressed with the build-quality of them. The team comments; “They are extremely rugged well-built machines. In addition to the impressive build-quality of their equipment, we were also impressed by the customer service team at ROQ. They were knowledgeable, helpful, and made the post-purchase maintenance and service stress free.”

“ROQ helps us achieve high quality, repeatable imprints at unmatched efficiency and operator comfort. This machine attracts high quality clients and employees that are the foundation of our business,” says Spencer Brandt, of Media Shack Fargo,
Nick Burton with Eternal Designs states; “Automation was the next step in the evolution of my business. When looking at press manufacturers, ROQ had the best machine I had seen in the market. From the way it functioned, features, overall look, and the top-notch support they provided with the press. ROQ made me feel comfortable throughout the process. Answering questions, taking calls, and being attentive to my needs. Also, their 3-year warranty on parts and service made the decision even easier to make.”
“We chose ROQ because several shops whose work I admired and who I considered some of the best shops in the country were using ROQ presses. We had other brands autos in the past, and are very happy with our switch to ROQ. Getting to know some of the people behind ROQ has only solidified our partnership. They have some really amazing people behind the brand that I respect and admire.” – Drue Nickerson of 320 Ink.
Raw Paw built their business slowly and carefully over the years, telling us that they were “hesitant” to transition to an automatic press because of how much they had developed their craft with printing by hand and wanted to keep their overheads as low as possible. As they grew and had more business flowing into the shop, manual printing grew extremely laborious and physically demanding. They comment; “We hit a wall with production, and around the same time, reached a point in the health of our business where we could unlock the new tool of the automatic press. It felt like we graduated from one phase of building a screen print shop to a higher level. A lot of the physical demands have transitioned to mental work and problem solving.” Now that they are a year into the learning curve of running an automatic press, they “really really like the ROQ”. They continue; “It has helped our day-to-day lives greatly and has given us a renewed sense of hope into what Raw Paw can grow into.”

The southern powerhouse team at Tommy’s Tees states, “The ROQ line has greatly improved our production and bottom line. We are thrilled that our set up times have been reduced by over 50%.”
When asked why screen printing giant Liquid Graphics chose to automate their business with ROQ, they tell us, “When we chose to move all our printing equipment over to the ROQ platform, it really came down to their innovation in speed, setup times, and overall efficiency. It’s been a fantastic change for us and has allowed us to move quicker and produce at a higher quality consistently.”
