Need to have the space to do it though. They also press the shirt for just a couple of seconds prior to putting it on the machine to flatten the shirt fibers. But don't do it to cure the pretreatment.
That is more of what I was wondering, that if you hung dried the shirt that it would be more fuzzy from the fibers not being pressed down. Sorry did not mean to say cure, what I was referring to was drying the pretreatment and also pressing down the fibers.

my suspicion is that you might not have enought pretreatment on the shirt. when using a sprayer for the anajet pretreatment solution (this is what i'm doing), i noticed that the sprayer creates an ultra fine mist and is actually not laying down as much pretreatment as you might think. the sprayer creates a very thick "fog" of pretreat/water. because it's a mist of liquid, you need to apply it for quite awhile. the bad news is that it takes just a little bit longer to perform the operation. the good news is that very fine misting is what prevents a pretreatment stain on your shirt when you're finished printing.

my suggestion is that you apply the pretreatment for a longer period of time. touch it with your fingers. the shirt should feel damp and also a bit sticky.

your problem sounds like the same one i experienced when i first tried printing. i was frustrated until i realized it was the sprayer causing the problems, not the chemicals or the printer.

this is just my $0.02...please don't blame me if there's another shirt on the trash heap with my name on it i'm just trying to help...LOL

No, but I'd be interested in hearing more about the Anajet and what you saw --

What would you guys say is the cost per shirt thru a DTG?

Good quality colored/dark shirt with an avg size design? say 8x8?

Well folks I own one. This printer is.....actually awesome! However, there are a few things all should know about it.
1) Ink is expensive....period.
2) You must maintain at very least every other day.
3) Did I tell you ink is expensive.
4) Once ink is flowing well, what an image, what a machine.
5) Pre-Treatment is more expensive than the ink.
6) Humidity must be between 40% and 55% where the printer is to help with ink flow.
7) Now you know why DTG shirts are expensive.
I wouldn't trade it for the world. Anajet staff are just awesome and very helpful and the machine performs as outlined. Just a few quirks everyone must work out - as with any new machine.

Hi Jerry,

I am curious how much anajet charges for their pretreatment that it is more expensive then the ink. Doesnt the anajet also use dupont ink? My pretreatment for my hm1 is around $90 a gallon but my ink runs about $280 a liter.

Here is a link to a website that that has all the pricing for the Anajet - Direct-to-Garment Printers - Anajet DTG Printer, White Ink.

Pretreatment is $107 for a 64 ounce container. Not sure what that calculates into in liters, but it should be cheaper than the ink for the Anajet printer.

The list price for the US Screen White Pretreatment is $95 for a 128 ounce container.

64 Oz is about 1.89 Liters, just short of 2 liters.

AnaJet pretreatment is sold in concentrated form. MSRP is $87.00 for a 64oz container (old price was $107, but we dropped it with the ink prices). The solution is to be mixed 50/50 with water to make a gallon (almost 4 liters) Per liter price... about $22.00.

Florence, I might add that it's a good idea to mix with distilled water. And if you use this on more pastel shirts, you can dilute a little more. This is something, that one need to experiment with.

Jerry,

I'm looking at adding DTG to my embroidery business and have been looking at the Anajet. One question I have about your post is the maintaining part. If I were to let my printer sit unused for 1 or 2 weeks at a time, would it cause any additional problems other than having to run a clean cycle on the ink cartridges? I don't predict business will take off all that quickly for me!

If you are using white ink you will also want to flush all the ink out of your lines before letting it sit that long or I can guarantee you will have a head clog
