Are you sure it is a DTG printer?

I did see them hover the heat press over the black shirt for a few seconds to warm it up.

We also went there for their class and to pick up our baby (the anajet, but don't let our Howie hear us say that!) We thought the pretreatment booth was expensive, $1200. I don't know the proper terminology, but they had the heater belt thingy going when we were there, AS well as the pizza warmer looking heat lamp for single ones. AND they also had them hanging in the corner of the parking lot drying. They told us, depending where you live (we live in S. Cali) we could save money buy just line hanging it, or on our fence and just pretreat with a WAGNER paint gun. that is what we plan to do. We are too broke for that machine, and we have no more room in our place!

They said that the pretreatment box thingy is a hit for places that are humid and rainy.

You want to make sure after spraying the pretreatment that you brush down the fibers on the shirt, which also helps to push the pretreatment between the fibers. This will insure you will get a good print result

Hello, guys.
I have one more important question for Anajet owners.
I hear many people are happy with the printing quality of Anajet, and have seen some photos of T-shirts printed by Anajet, but do think its quality is as good as that of Zazzle DTG?
I know Zazzle uses high-end Kornit printers which are more expensive than Anajet, but are their qualities even comparable?
I would appreciate your honest opinion.

Regards.

Zazzle is using 30 T-Jet Blazer Pro printers for their shirt production. I do not believe they are using Kornit printers now.

Hi, Harry.

I actually talked with a Kornit dealer and he confirmed that Zazzle had bought around 15 Kornit printers. I believe they are using those new printers also for T-shirt production? What do you think?

Using my own art, I had a t-shirt sample printed from a company using a Kornit printer.
I also had another company print a sample using the Anajet printer.

There was no comparison. When the Anajet sample came in the mail, my wife and I were excited! The Anajet sample wins round 1!

I'll verify my finding by reissuing the same designs to different companies.


And to add more to my experiment, I took the Anajet print to a professional t-shirt fabricator and he said that he could not distinguish the Anajet print from actual silkscreen quality.

That's my report, and I'm sticking to it!

J,

Do you mind posting a small illustrator of the graphic you are getting printed and whether it was going on a dark or light garment? This could help people with their decision making process as well.

Hi AdrianJordan, We have the GT-541 down in New Zealand and it's great. I'm considering the purchase of the Anajet. I'm curious, were you able to sort out the issues you were having with your pretreatment of dark shirts?

anajet... I've had one since April and am disappointed with the washability... Ive had 15 customers bring their purchases back for re-do, and don't know how many just won't be back. My own shirts, ink set 2-3, pressed at 350 for 45 seconds..............have faded, and no good answers from Tech support.

Anajet uses DuPont ink.

I would push closer to 60 seconds if the shirts you have do not yellow with med pressure, I take it these are white tees?

By the way what brand of shirts do you use?
Some shirts use chemicals when they are made that can play havoc.

I would also suggest you do two lighter passes then one heavy pass.

Dupont actually recommends 2 minutes at 170' c (about 336' F I believe) for light colored shirts.

Who listen's to Dupont anyway
There are a number of ways to skin that cat.

It all comes down to time, temperature and pressure, so one can play with those combinations ...within reason and still fully activate the binders.

Remember that even the parchment paper you use can effect cure times if moisture cannot escape.
