I don't use DTG but could it be that the computer that is processing the print job is being slowed down? It could possibly be running out of memory because the file is large or maybe other programs that are running are causing it to slow down.

I agree with Helvis. It is a computer issue. My guess is something to do with the spooling and buffering.

But I have a question, did it just happen on this print or every time you print?

Agree with the posts above.
You should use a program to optimize your images.

WOah, I almost had a heart attack...
The biggest file I printed so far was 42MB, and I though it was too big lol

Use a software like Photoshop and optimize it!
