SWF East, distributor
of SWF commercial embroidery machines.
SWF East was established in 1999, however their staff has over 3 decades of industry experience.
As their name suggests, they operate predominantly in the Eastern parts of the US.
They also have offices in Puerto Rico, hence a Spanish
version of their site.
Aside from commercial embroidery machines, they do offer embroidery digitizing solutions with
Sierra software. An overview of embroidery software levels and pricing is provided via easy-to-read
chart which can be viewed on their site. If you're thinking of purchasing stock embroidery design
software, you can save $1,000 off the regular price of Dakota Collectibles' flagship design library
with a purchase of an embroidery machine. Lower cost embroidery design collections from Dakota
Collectibles are also available.
SWF East carries a line of screen printing equipment including manual presses, flash cure units,
conveyor dryers, and exposure units. Additionally, they sell the Fast T-jet "direct-to-garment" inkjet
printer. If you've never heard of Fast T-Jet before, basically, it prints designs directly on clothing
without all the mess of traditional screen printing.
