Preparing your printer for the holiday power-down

SYDNEY, Australia - November 21, 2023

You might be getting ready for a break after a busy year, but is your printer ready? Now is the time to stock up on essential maintenance and consumables for the holiday powerdown.

Ensuring that your printer is powered-down properly before any period of inactivity is crucial.

Getting this simple but crucial task correct also helps ensure that your printer fires up again when it's time to start printing again in the New Year.

Follow GJS' three-step guide to preparing your printer for the holiday power-down:

  1. Follow any and all of your printer's shut-down/storage maintenance procedures (refer to the printer operating manual);
  2. Store your inks and printer within the recommended conditions; 15-25°C, 35-80% relative humidity with no condensation; and
  3. If your printer remained powered on during storage mode, it is recommended to use a UPS or surge protector–after all summer is storm season here in Australia!

If you own a Roland, Epson or Brother DTG printer you will receive a detailed email from our support team regarding purchasing consumables and maintenance items if you plan to power down your printer for an extended period of time over the holiday season.
