I will attempt to put up a couple of images that were applied to 100% cotton shirts using this White toner printer and a Sublimation Ink Jet printer with a Neenah Image Clip for Dark paper. Maybe this will demonstrate how superior this process is over the expensive DTG process.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah I had no idea of the capabilities of modern WSP . How is the feel? And what are your sizing capabilities for your artwork? Is it only 8 1/2 x 11? 8 1/2 x 17?

The feel is like rubbing your hand over a cotton pillow case. It is that smooth.
The size unfortunately is 8 1/2 x 11 & 8 1/2 x 14" at this cost.
You can go to 11 x 17" by purchasing a large color Oki printer with our white toner for $1,500.00. more to do a larger size.
The resolution is so dramatic that size isn,t as important as low resolution screen printing is.
Below is a letter size onto a Pillow Case to show smoothness and resolution.

Nice dog pictures. You need to put them on color pillow cases.

This is our 5th DTG. The others were from DTG brand from Mesa Distributors.

Out first two were smaller machines where the head moved over a stationary shirt (HM1 Kiosk). The first was a lemon. The replacement was a workhorse. It lasted about 5 years of heavy use. Not quick, but reliable (after the lemon).

We decided to get a second machine and purchase a refurbished DTG Viper. On this machine the shirts (on a pallet) moved underneath a stationary head. This allowed for a very large print area that could accommodate 4 smaller or two larger prints at once. It had a white ink system that circulated white ink to avoid clogging. Really didn't make a big difference. We called it Diablo...it was unpredictable and prone to issues. It died after about 4 and a half years.

When the Kiosk died, we replace it with a new DTG Summit. While it printed in the same fashion as the Viper, it was more reliable. It's demise came when the carriage started slipping on the belt. Attempts to repair it damaged the carriage. Attempts to repair that led to general failure. Estimates of $3K to $4K to have it repaired led us to retire the 6 year old machine.

Now we have the FreeJet 330TX. We have had it since the end of June and have been seriously putting it through it's paces. We have printed in excess of 500 full color on dark prints (with white underlay) and well over 1000 dark prints on lights so far.

This one prints like our original Kiosi, with a stationary shirt and moving print head. Much more accurate prints!

The best part of the machine is the RIP software. It has MANY options and allows you to really fine tune the print for a particular fabric or color.

The wet capping station works as promised. It keeps the head moist while not in use, leading to VERY consistent prints. Whites are very white. Colors are vibrant. Maybe too vibrant...

Depending on the fabric, the standard setting of the RIP software tends to put down too much ink. Fortunately the RIP software allows to you incrementally dial ink levels back. We had issues with ink bleeding, especially in lighter weight 100% cotton and blends, but the great software allows you to fix it.

There is a bit of a drawn out shut down procedure that you have to do at the end of the day, it takes about 5 minutes, but there are times that I have to dash at the end of the day and stopping to do it is a pain, but the resulting prints are worth it.

Learning which buttons on the printer do what is not intuitive. They should re-label the buttons to better reflect their actual function. Strange error lights flashing over things that aren't errors is disconcerting. The printer's owners manual is 66 pages long, but the manual for the RIP software is a hefty 315 pages. If I were starting from scratch there would definitely be a learning curve. Omniprint's training was thorough for general operation, but glossed over some of the cooler things this printer can do.

Overall we are very happy so far. Full color prints on black are about 40% faster than on the Viper or Summit. Regular prints are about 20% faster. Quality is great. I would recommend it.
Is it possible you can tell me what your settings are in the rip. I just got mine in October but haven't learn the twitting part in software as it is what omni set them at.

That is a cool thread by Turbo Threads. Printing 1,500 shirts with $1.00 going towards cost of equipment makes your investment paid for at 1,500 x $1.00 = $15,000.

Dose any one know any other Dark pretritment solution for FreeJet 330tx?
They charge too much for shipping pretritment.
1Gal 55$+ Shipping 34$=$89 I think is too expensive!!!!
