Operating in a pandemic has vastly changed the way companies do business, but customization remains a robust trend.  Even service industry companies are making customized solutions part of their offerings.  

We talked with Ryan Klitz, Safety Officer at BeginRight Employment services, a direct hire and temporary staffing agency located in Portland, Oregon. BeginRight started in 1986, and has since grown into one of the leading agencies in the Pacific Northwest, serving Washington State and Oregon.  They help light industrial companies find staff for food processing, clerical and manufacturing positions.

“What we found is that the ease of the entire process is just mind blowing.”

Klitz was looking for a way to keep BeginRight’s injured workers employed in a return-to-work program.  He also was getting tired of paying for outsourced t-shirt production. He began investigating direct-to-garment printers as a way to address both these issues.
What drew you to Roland DG’s VersaSTUDIO BT-12 direct-to-garment printer?
 Klitz: The videos and reviews online made the BT-12 look like a simple machine that anyone could operate, while also producing a high-quality product.
What we found is that the ease of the entire process is just mind blowing.  From the software to the actual finished product, it is as easy as it gets. We’ve been very happy with the quality of the printing also.
How has COVID-19 affected your business? 
We’ve seen a major increase in the positions we’re recruiting for and the number of customers wanting to use our services.  When the mask mandate came out, we were very happy to discover we could print our customers’ logos on them. Providing our customers with their own logo on masks and T-shirts has been a huge hit, and lets them know we appreciate their business.
What types of garments have you customized on your BT-12? 
So far, we’ve produced logo graphics on sweatshirts, T-shirts and masks.
How do you see the role of the BT-12 in your business going forward?  
We plan to continue to use the BT-12 to print T-shirts and masks for our customers and employees, and to provide an awesome return-to-work program for our employees. 

We're very excited about the possibilities of our new Roland DG BT-12 and look forward to many more opportunities to use it in the future.
