Many will suggest research, get samples, see the printer operating at a show.

Smile Re: What is the Best DTG Printer?

nguyen,

JohnL gave you some very valid recommendations. The Best DTG on the market is asked numerous times across the forums. The standard answer is research the various brands, see which ones fit your business model. Then finalize your selection through various means matching your needs, level of complexity, customer support, etc. etc.

As an example, some may recommend speed printing, others may recommend printing on wet, some may recommend printing details, others may say print on black shirts, others may say stay with light colored shirts. There are so many variables to take into consideration, it's best to research and learn about each one. When you've weeded out those that do not fit your needs then send out a detailed image like whats going on now with the DTG Battle Royal. Have them print up a detailed image for you, look at how the judging is being done then add to that what your expecting to see.

Also remember the Pretreatment, will you be doing it by hand or machine, if by machine do you have the additional components to run it? If by hand do you have an open area that is good year round?

So in essence take the time to research it, it will pay off in the long run. Best of luck to you!

Find an expo near you and go check them all out! Watch them run, get pricing and samples ect. I am in New York and there is one coming up in Atlantic City, NJ. A lot to see there 100 booths or more. ISS Atlantic City Expo..They have others around the country. See if there is one by you.

Hey it's best to have both options in my opinion. What makes The Print Bar work well is that we can screen print t shirts or digitally print tees. Screenprinting saves time and money on larger orders, and DTG you can make good margin on low run ordsers and also get great realistic photographic print work done easily! We use the Brother GT3 t shirt printers... they are so easy to maintain.

We recently purchased a FREEJET 330 TX from Omniprint in Costa Mesa, CA and we would highly recommend this company to purchase from. We had 2 days of one on one training with Jose Haro. It was really great and you really can't beat the excellent customer service that we have received. Especially after hours. We previously owned an Anajet sprint for the past 4 1/2 years and had some issues with it so we went to the ISS show in Long Beach in Jan. 2014. The rip program on this machine as well as the capping station for low maintenance is what sold us. With the Anajet, I would never print photo's on a black shirt, (never came out nice) and we used to have to print out several "small samples to get the color right for photo's on white shirts. At the show, (Said, one of the tech's) printed up a photo that I brought on a flashdrive and didn't even have to make any adjustments, that alone sold me. Omniprint gave us money for our trade in and again, the customer service from them is excellent. Thanks again for your excellent customer service, Jose, Said, Paul, & Victor. Check them out.

Hi , I am new to the market and also in the process of buying a printer but because I live in South Africa and our currency is not that strong it is a very expensive machine to buy. I am thinking of importing fron China as is is about the third of the price. My only concern would be back up service as I think quality of the machines are probabily the same. Everything get made there and the exported!!! ( Am I wrong in saying so? ) Please help!!!!

My advice Marius - don't buy a cheap import from China.

This forum is littered with people who've done that and ended up in misery. Support is generally ZERO and without support your printer will be as good as a door stop in next to no time.

They'll speak good English to get your money from you but surprisingly that all changes very quickly when you need support.

My suggestion, save up and buy a NeoFlex with superb support, in the meanwhile, contract your printing to someone local.

Just my opinion but gathered from the facts posted on here.
