Re: mPower or Neoflex???

Answer is easy.
Price?
Quality out put?
After Service?
Supply cost?
Research more in TSF.
Cheers! Inks are on me always.

Re: mPower or Neoflex???

All of the above are important. The hardware, the rip, the garment you choose, the level of training you receive when you buy a printer, the level of support after the sale, the true cost of ink and pre treat, labor, how much time will you have to spend maintaing your printer, just to name a few.
Is speed the most important thing? Is quality of print the most important?
If I was starting today I would have all prospective companies print my graphic on shirts I supplied. I would compare them before wash. I would cut them in half. Keep one half out and never wash it so I had a starting point for comparison. I would wash the other half and compare them to the half not washed at 1 wash 5, 10 and 20. It's not just the how the image looks when it's new, it's also about how long it lasts.

That is very frustrating I know. I had similar problems but included the puzzle of pretreating
correctly. I just wanted you to know you were not alone!

Re: mPower or Neoflex???

Not a problem. Pricing and pretreating are the two most underrated areas for people getting into dtg printing. Sometimes I wish there was a magic formula, but there is not.

Here is my best advice. Take a hard look at the questions above and create your first round of pricing. For the first two months keep a log of the number of shirts you print, the square inches of the artwork, total amount ink used (not from the RIP, but actual from the bottles or cartridges used - weigh the cartridges before you start printing and when you are done to get actual ink used), the time it took to print the jobs and what revenues were generated. Then reevaluate your pricing. Make changes if necessary.

Good luck,

Mark

If this were the case everyone would have the same output. There are certain things that RIP cannot do if the ability is not within the hardware.
