Customer Reviews

Phil Rideout, PresidentR&R EnterprisesFenton MO, USA
R&R Enterprises is a mid-sized print & embroidery shop specializing in the motorsports apparel industry.

We purchased our first M&R automatic printing press and took delivery on June 24th 2010. In addition to the Sportsman E 12-color, we got a Sprint 2000 dryer and three Red Chili flashers. The M&R tech arrived July 1st and by the afternoon of the following day we were up and running.

We had previously been printing on two automatic presses of a different brand, and we had been working past midnight regularly to meet demand. We originally planned to continue printing on one of our older presses alongside our new Sportsman E. However, once we began printing on the Sportsman E we could not believe the difference, from ease of operation to the remarkable quality in which we were now printing. Sportsman E printed perfectly, and the setups were faster than ever thanks to the M&R Tri-Loc Registration System. We were able to turn out twice as many prints on our Sportsman E as we could using both of our older presses.After a couple of days we found ourselves printing exclusively on our new Sportsman E, and we retired our older press. Printing past midnight was finally over.

With the increase in production and a much improved quality of print, we were able to take on twice the workload. Business increased so much that we purchased a second new M&R press, a Sportsman EX 12-color, just 6 months later.

Everything from our presses, dryer, flash units and Tri-Loc system has worked perfectly every day. We have experienced no downtime whatsoever, a true testament to the quality of all the M&R products.


The success and continued growth in our business is strongly related to the performance of all our M&R equipment. We would like to thank Rich Hoffman and all the people of M&R for a job well done.

If you are a first time buyer and have any questions regarding any of my M&R equipment please feel free to call me at any time. I will be happy to tell you about our newest addition, the M&R Sportsman EXG 14-color.
