Smile Shall I buy DIY Epson R3000 DTG Printer?

Hi,

I am actually new to dtg printing. I want to start business of t shirt printing with DTG printer. I planning to buy DIY Epson R3000 DTG printer from private seller in India. Shall I buy it?

I want to offer my consumers a very good quality tee with high quality printing. I am worried about the image quality of DIY Epson R3000 DTG printer. I mean will it print good quality image. I want to print only vector images on t shirt through Epson R3000 dtg printer. I don't want to print very high photographic images, just only vector images. I want to print on both light as well as dark garments. I am also planning to use only Dupont Inks for printing.

So will Epson R3000 DIY DTG printer will do my work?

I don't have that much money to buy original epson f2000, so deciding to buy DIY Epson R3000 dtg printer.

Ultimate decision is up to you but think about what you will do when it does not work as expected . If your going to go with a diy dtg its better to build it yourself using help on the forums . This way you will understand how your printer works and how to repair it when it gives you trouble . You will also be able to build a 2nd and 3rd printer when your business is dependent on that DIY DTG machine to keep jobs moving . If you make your own base your cost per printer will be very low compared to buying a finished model .

The videos are nice -like the one with the weights - I would be interested in seing it print a fine red grid and then overprint the same fine grid in black to see how tight the 2nd pass registration is -not all of us print tshirts
