"I am blown away by the Lawson Mini-Trooper. The Lawson Mini-Trooper is my greatest investment of all time!The Mini Trooper just "fit" my budget and my building size."
Art By David
The wonderful people at Lawson assured me that I would not be disappointed in purchasing the Mini-Trooper, and once trained, I realized the simplicity of printing both the large and small jobs with the auto. The ease of printing jobs off of this machine is amazing! The set up, alignment/registration, micro-registration on the fly, etc, and most of all, quality of the print, is perfect."
"The Mini-Trooper is our second automatic. We added it hoping to gain additional production and improve our turnaround time by 30%. We were wrong -- The Mini-Trooper has DOUBLED our production. It was affordable and it helped us out."
Shirts & Caps, Inc.
"We have successfully printed our first job on your Lawson Mini-Trooper. 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. Thanks to the Lawson salespeople for all their help and patience with us."
Jim and Betsy B.
"I own a Mini-Trooper and I absolutely love it. Lawson sent their tech to my shop 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."
