Mini-Trooper Testimonials

"I am blown away by the Lawson Mini-Trooper. The Lawson Mini-Trooper is my greatest investment of all time!

I have been a part-time screen printing shop since 1993. I'm 46 years old and feeling the effects of the manual press. I do not advertise, but with the Mini Trooper I may WANT to advertise! The jobs just fly by now.

On occasions I involve my wife and my 2 college kids in on the "work". My shop is in a 16' x 20' building. The Mini Trooper just "fit" my budget and my building size. With a job of 3,000 shirts I recently bid one and received, I have been blessed to pay-off my machine already… so look out profits!

Besides t-shirts, I print a number of caps. I had been manually printing with a Hat Champ. I was able to attach the Hat Champ to the Mini-Trooper and "Wow!" Talk about getting a job done consistent! This machine is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!! And so is the Hot-Shot Shuttle Flash Dryer!"

"I would like to take this time to let you know how much I am enjoying my new Lawson Mini-Trooper Automatic. I was hesitant from the beginning in getting an “automated” press, since I was so comfortable using my manual press. I had become used to making adjustments and changing direction on the fly, and I was in my comfort zone with the manual. The other concern I had was that, even though we have a nice healthy business, we do many small orders, and I was afraid the Mini-Trooper would be overkill for what I needed.

The wonderful people at Lawson assured me that I would not be disappointed in purchasing the Mini-Trooper, and once trained, I would realize the simplicity of printing both the large and small jobs with the auto. You (Lawson) were right! The ease of printing jobs off of this machine is amazing, even for me! The set up, alignment/registration, micro-registration on the fly, etc, and most of all, quality of the print, is amazing. I always have focused on 110% quality, and thought we were there before with the manual printer, but now I KNOW we are there.

I decided, since making this large purchase, to go all out and get the automated carousel as well as the Lawson Hot-Shot Flash. Up front of course, you always over analyze the spending money…..Should I get it, should I not……and I have to say, those two items were the icing on the cake! I have made the right decision and could not be happier with buying this equipment from Lawson.

Lastly, without great support, nothing is worth the spend. From the original discussions I had with you, and then in speaking with Ben in St. Louis (nice to get to speak with an owner of a company!), I felt really comfortable in dealing with Lawson. In fact, I did not even shop around after that. I will opt for support and service over a deal all day long!!!

Last but not least, the training Ron provided was second to none. That of course was the missing piece to making this whole purchase successful. Ron was very pleasant to deal with, patient with my SLOW learning process, and very, very thorough! His detailed teaching and description, along with my note taking, allowed me to step right into the print and production mode. I really think I have only had to look at the manual once since I started using the Mini-Trooper.

Feel free to use me as a happy customer recommendation for your products and service. Thanks again for all of your time and I look forward to working with all of the folks at Lawson in the future!"

"The Mini-Trooper is our second automatic. We added it hoping to gain additional production and improve our turnaround time by 30%. It was affordable and we thought that it would help us out.

We were so wrong -- The Mini-Trooper has DOUBLED our production. Its fast, easy to set up, and just keeps working! Our press operator learned the entire press in less than a day.

This is a remarkable press -- much more than the price point would suggest. We needed some modifications to make the press work in our situation and EVERYONE at Lawson stepped up to accomplish it. Amazing Service-far above and beyond what you could hope to expect.

Perhaps the best statement about the press is that our production manager came to the office a few days ago with a drawing of how she plans to rearrange the press floor -- to make room for another Mini-Trooper! Thanks to everyone for a great machine."

"Just wanted to let you know that we have successfully printed our first job on your Lawson Mini-Trooper. It was a tight register, two color print with large coverage areas. The screens registered perfectly, the shuttle flash did its job, and with one or two minor "oops", we printed off 48 prints in no time. Although it was a short run, it was perfect for us to get our feet wet with automatic printing. We look forward now to larger, multiple color jobs in addition to our short run customer segment.

Thanks to the Lawson salespeople for all their help and patience with us at the Atlantic City Show.... we were a pain in the butt! They showed us the utmost courtesy and were extremely helpful in getting us trained sufficiently to make us comfortable in setting up and running our new press "unsupervised". Thanks again for everything."

"I own a mini-trooper and I absolutely love it. I purchased the mini and Lawson sent their tech to my shop in Pittsburgh for 2 days to do set-up and training. The customer service is second to none, and I have never had a problem with calling them and having any question answered ASAP. Their salesman still calls me just to check and see how things are going."
