Hello everyone,

I hesitate also between the epson f2100 and the echo2 for a purchase in France.

I have already had on the phone the sellers of the two brands, of course, both of them assure me that their own brand the best choise.

I sell about 200 t-shirts a month (95% black shirt), birthday t-shirts, every time same quality of shirt.
I don't need extraordinary quality, an medium quality is enough for my logos (simple with flat color, not photography or complicated design).

Another point:

I print only 2 to 3 times a week and I think the EPSON will NOT support these delays without printing, or it will cost very expensive cleaning for white ink.

What do you think ?

For my work my choise go first on ECHO2, because of this pressurized ink system, is maybe better for printing every 2 to 3 days without problems.

Thank you and sorry for bad english,

Pierrot

This idea is absolutely and totally wrong when it comes to the F2100. You can leave the printer sit for up to two weeks without ever laying eyes on it and it will be ready to print after boot up and a good nozzle check.

Maintenance on these machine is a breeze too. About five minutes at the end of the print day to clean out the print cap, rinse out the spit filter and you are done. No more tube washes from the early F2000 days (for the F2000 either in "eco" mode).

From the sound of what you are doing it seems to me that the F2100 is a perfect choice for you. JHMO.

Thanks for you reply is good to know.

If I do not use the epson and i do not purge the system, the epson will circulate white ink in the recycling bin to prevent it from drying, right?

at the price of epson's ink, it will be expensive?

This is also incorrect.

The Epson F2100 unlike a lot of DTGs on the market (such as the Brother GTX) uses a dry capping station where the head parks into an air tight section until it is ready to print again. For this reason there is no ink circulation (or waste of any kind) when your machine is powered off.

The GTX (as well as others) use a wet capping station. The manufactures of these type of printers tout this as a good thing (I dunno) but with this kind of a system you can NEVER turn off your printer and it circulates ("spits" - as in wastes or "dumps") ink and cleaning solution in the process over and over again, day after day.

Just the facts 'mam.
