Default Print cost on Anajet Sprint

Can anyone out there give me a ball park cost of printing a 10 x 12 image on a dark shirt - I have a sprint - and have just started using it, and I am having to base a job on calculations I have not yet been able to make. Thanks in advance for any help.

It varies based on:

1. What resolution you're printing
2. How much white ink you're printing (coverage)
3. What you are paying per liter for ink (bagged? bottle? cartridge?)
4. What your shop labor rate is hourly

I understand that - all I want is the actual ink cost - like I said just a ball park - Using cartridges that cost avg 50 each - say 85% white coverage.. I just have not gone thru a set of ink in this one yet, so I really have no idea how many prints etc I will get from the set.

Do you run autocleans every X hours? That'll affect ink cost as well. Lots of factors there.

I average my white ink costs at $3.33 a print regardless of image size. I pay $150 a liter. We put a slash on the bottle after every shirt printed. If we get more than 40 shirts out of a bottle, win! If we get less, boo. If we go through 2 bottles in a row with too many or too few, I adjust my costing.

Like everyone says its a lot of variables size settings blah blah blah but I at least get 100 prints. I just did front and back 50 shirts and it did not take 4 220L cartridges and these were not new cartridges I installed for this job.

So even though it depends I say at lease a 100

Anajet white cartridges for the sprint are about $64.00 ea. from Anajet. You need four. That's $256.00. You didn't use all the ink, let's say you only used 3/4 of the ink in the cartridges to get 100 prints. This comes out to $192.00 in white ink cost or $1.92 per print for white. Plus whatever you are using in CMYK. If you are getting 100 per set you are doing better than most.
