Default Cheapest DTG printer PER SHIRT

Hi,

It seems like all the DTG pricing posts are from 3 years ago or more. Also, it is confusing because it seems like everyone is adding in the cost of the shirt?

It can't possibly be $5-7 per shirt just for the prep and ink to print the design?

I am looking for average price per shirt NOT including labor or shirt cost. I would like it to include prep per shirt and ink and whatever else is needed per shirt.
Most designs will be on black shirts and aveeage size would be 10 x 15(I make kid's shirts). I sell 12 - 25 a day.

Can someone please help me? At $9 - $12 per shirt before labor it would NOT be worth $15,000

Melissa

We use a DTG M2 and it really depends on the design. We have some shirts that are under a dollar and others that cost $4

I would say on average for a front and back print you would be around $1.50

I think they're about 20k. We bought their pro package which came with more than just the printer. So far very happy with the M2. We did a lot of research and we found the M2 was the best.

Really depends on the printer, ink and designs you're using. I have a Brother GT-541, most prints don't go over $1.75. I print mostly full color images about 12" x 14".

Because of the media comments related to the F2000 I think Epson will have another direct to garment printer within the next 3 months.

The printers that have been introduced to the market this year have made huge steps above the present garment printers.

... buy the F2000 now.

Or wait until the full 2017 range of garment printers are shown.

I have seen 3 different (on the internet) of the new range of printers and they are faster and require less cleaning than previous garment printers.

This means in 2017 -8 there will be more choice for printers and better prices of the older type of models.

Default Re: Cheapest DTG printer PER SHIRT

to be honest as a DTG printer supplier as we dont Export due to its not 100% reliable in this time with white inks. Always need to clean the head regularly. and cost of per T-shirt is too much. maybe in few more time will be ready

Anybody use the Ricoh Ri 100 yet? It's only about $5k. The main drawback is that it doesn't utilize white ink so no dark fabrics. I'm thinking about buying one... That no white ink thing is really irking me, though.

But I figure that a DTG printer will come out before the end of the year (or early next year) that will feature white ink and a similar price point.

Also depends on the price of the INK.
This is a good deal for Epson converted printers...
CMYK DTG ink @ $25/bottle ( EPSON DTG Printers)
Coupon Code i used : DTGPROCMYK
