Well subject to change at any time but I have seen that price for a couple of months. By the way, I paid $279 for my 1400 a long time ago amd that $379 ia a good price just if I was to want the printer but great for the makings of a DTG.

the only epson 1900 printers i have purchased where the refurbs!!! its a fabulous deal, like new or basically new printer cheap in comparison to retail stores some listing the 1900 at better than 600 dollars...

its a small price to pay for the end result and return of investment when converting to a dtg!!! thats why i consider them throw away printers.. a whole new printer for the price of a printhead normally!!! and you get all new parts and extras..

There's a post on this page explaining German's position regarding bringing something to market.

Not sure I can wait for early spring although I will have plans for a second machine.

Default Re: Mission accomplished "license to thrill"

I have been researching different inksets to try! (ecosolvents) once i get a good list going i will start testing them!! i ran up on this company Direct Color Systems - Direct to Substrate Printers from what i understand and have read they manufacture this printer for ??????-???, im not sure if there Is any truth to this but the printer does look remarkably similar..

it looks like they produce a number of printers and carry there own ink sets http://www.directcolorsystems.com/multisolve_inks.html

http://www.directcolorsystems.com/pigment_based_inks.html .. and from what i read on there site they are mild solvents AND WILL PRINT WITHOUT A PRE OR POST TREAT... it looks that some modification would have to be done to some of the printer possibly printhead and or capping station!!!

Im interested in this for a couple different reasons... #1 as an alternative to dupont white issues using no pre-treat or possible a wetting pretreat as other printers use..#2 opening up different market opportunities being able to print to plastic,metal etc thats a very large window to open up for more biz!!

this was a late find tonite for me so i sent them an email... my problem is im working when they are and have little time to get someone on the phone for a question and answer session!!! quite possibly we might be able to buy the upgraded parts needed to run the ink and or get sent in the right direction by them if not...

if someone would like to pick up the ball from here and possibly get them on the horn and see what they can find out regarding the needed things to run the ink or there suggestions feel free to do so!!! and if you could post your findings on this it would be awesome.. thanks

I just called tech support on the IR7 ink and he Sid the ink would not work very well on garments that it was made for wood, plastic, metal etc. he also Sid thy are using it in and Epson R1900 test printer right now, and that the profile for the printer would need to be changed to apply the proper amount of ink, I tried to talk him out of a copy of there profile but he wouldn't let it go, I don't know if this helps much but I'm new to all this, I've been trying to read all I can so maybe I can build my own R1900 DTG printer with some help from the very kind people here.
Thanks

A little off topic but i think you guys can help me. Is there any kind of program (@normal price, not RIP prices) that can tell me how much ink I use and estimate the cost for each print job? I`ve got the Epson W1100, and use normal ink.
