I spoke to the new UK distributor today about these machines, in the UK the carts are 440ml and around £80 for CMYK and £140 for White but was told technically they'll use less ink than that due to the consistency of it (consistency isn't the right term but it's friday afternoon and hot

They use a higher viscosity formulation, this means a thinner layer will contain more Ti02 pigment resulting in less ink being required to gain good opacity. In real terms the white ink goes further than a normal DX5/7 formulation ink used mostly in Epson based printers.

In general we are seeing the same size file ripped at the same brightness costing around 25% less, these are our tests using our optimised settings so please don’t take that as fact you must do your own cost comparison tests.

Regards

Colin

Hi,
I have just purchased a 6000 and am looking for a different ink source right off the bat. Anajet is out of white ink in both sizes. We have researched bulk filling, but would like some feedback on it as I've read that the white reacts to air hitting it. thank you in advance

The bulk ink choices out there will not exactly match the oem inks from ricoh/anajet. These are dupont based ink like many manufacturers but there are tweaks to it.

Make sure you call Anajet as well when the website is showing out of stock. I dragged on an order because they had been out of stock for days and I finally called and asked when it would be in and they said they had plenty and would get the website updated. It may have just been great timing on my part, but it couldn't hurt to ask. I wish I had done it sooner.

Definitely way happier with the prints I've been having now. It still is no where near the 20 darkshirt prints per hour they promise, but it is fast enough to make money with, and the quality is definitely acceptable for resale. Maintenance is still there, but nothing compared to what I was doing, and nothing to hateful.

I print about 200 shirts a week and its pretty time intensive, so if you plan on printing any more then that i would probably go with the ri6000 if you can.
@bossman696 I think this machine would be great for a home based business, it takes up a fair amount of room, but nothing that wouldn't fit fine in a house. However it does not disassemble, so get some strong studs to help you maneuver though rooms, because it is awkward to hold, heavy, and you have to tilt it to get though a standard 3ft door. I'd also not recommend it in a garage just because you really need to monitor Humidity and Temperature with this machine which means needing to control the room environment, but a basement might be adequate. Demand for shirts is just so high I think you will have no problem paying off this machine, and in no time. I got mine for just shirt marketing one of my own small businesses, and started selling shirts online and offline as a side business/hobby and it turned into a pretty fast growing additional company. Originally I was just going to sell shirts until I got my money back from the machine and then switch to only using it for marketing, but after seeing how profitable it is there's no stopping it now.
As far a similar machine, I believe the Brother GTX is faster then the 3000, but slower then the 6000, but costs as much as the 6000, so if your looking for entry/upgrade into the industry, the Ri3000 does produce great prints with a cheaper initial investment. Note that they say speed is the only difference between the ri3 and ri6, but the ri3 has 3 less print heads, so it shares colors on 2 of the print heads, which i think means the ri3 does have more maintenance required simply because you cant get away with a semi dirty head because colors get mixed.

Hope this helps, sorry for the novel of a response. Let me know if you have any other questions, I know its a pretty big purchase so if there is any way I can help let me know.

Oh, I also found a more affordable option for supplies then buying through anajet which definitely helped my opinion of the machine, haha.



Where did you find the more affordable supplies fro your printer? I have a RI3000 and would love to find somewhere to buy cheaper supplies.

I am currently looking at getting the Ri3000, are you still happy with it?? I have read many reviews that state the users are not happy.

Thanks!

Much better options out there for the same price. Id say f2100 is a decent option.

440ml (I think) color cartridges are $86 each and the white XL cartridges are $110 each.

I think what he was trying to say is that the F250 is a tough truck that is made to work while the Toyota is made for puttering around town and going to the grocery store.





Oh, and that the Anajet shouldn't sit around not being used.
