It's the words 'entry level' and 'start-up business' that bother me. I wouldn't even be considering the DTG route to riches unless I was already a well established business with healthy sales and had tens of thousands in spare cash to speculate.

Adding on to that, if you know you will not be printing for days at a time... it would take you forever to make your money back if ever. Printers don’t like to be lazy. Best thing is to print everyday or every other day or you will have a clog which means you have to run some cleaning cycles to clear it out and that equals waisted ink which extends your payoff time or puts you further into debt that matched with wanting to do full prints which was previously stated most printers print a max 16x20 and the biggest full size press is 16x20 under 2k and if you are using white ink that’s going to be a heavy cost in ink, cleanings and initial purchase. Unless those few days you are selling enough shirts to pay for materials, your labor, equipment payments and enough to afford flushing out your system every time you plan to leave it Idle... it’s prob best to start off with something cheaper like 13x19 sublimation
