Also, this was a reply to a question about printing terry towels:

I don't know if other printers have this feature or not.

We would be using it all year and probably wouldn't be sitting too long, but that is good advice. Thank you.

If I were to buy a DTG printer TODAY, it would be the Epson F2100. Epson seems to have done a good job of reducing the number of failures due to ink drying in the head. They do that by filtering the white (twice!) and providing a scheduled daily maintenance cycle that cleans the head. They also recommend that when you store the printer for extended periods--like you might be doing since you're in the school system--that you replace the ink cartridges with cleaning solution in order to preserve the head.

Oh, and that the Anajet shouldn't sit around not being used.

Re: Ricoh RI 3000

Much better options out there for the same price. Id say f2100 is a decent option.

Re: Ricoh RI 3000

I am currently looking at getting the Ri3000, are you still happy with it?? I have read many reviews that state the users are not happy.

Thanks!

Definitely way happier with the prints I've been having now. It still is no where near the 20 darkshirt prints per hour they promise, but it is fast enough to make money with, and the quality is definitely acceptable for resale. Maintenance is still there, but nothing compared to what I was doing, and nothing to hateful.

I print about 200 shirts a week and its pretty time intensive, so if you plan on printing any more then that i would probably go with the ri6000 if you can.
@bossman696 I think this machine would be great for a home based business, it takes up a fair amount of room, but nothing that wouldn't fit fine in a house. However it does not disassemble, so get some strong studs to help you maneuver though rooms, because it is awkward to hold, heavy, and you have to tilt it to get though a standard 3ft door. I'd also not recommend it in a garage just because you really need to monitor Humidity and Temperature with this machine which means needing to control the room environment, but a basement might be adequate. Demand for shirts is just so high I think you will have no problem paying off this machine, and in no time. I got mine for just shirt marketing one of my own small businesses, and started selling shirts online and offline as a side business/hobby and it turned into a pretty fast growing additional company. Originally I was just going to sell shirts until I got my money back from the machine and then switch to only using it for marketing, but after seeing how profitable it is there's no stopping it now.
As far a similar machine, I believe the Brother GTX is faster then the 3000, but slower then the 6000, but costs as much as the 6000, so if your looking for entry/upgrade into the industry, the Ri3000 does produce great prints with a cheaper initial investment. Note that they say speed is the only difference between the ri3 and ri6, but the ri3 has 3 less print heads, so it shares colors on 2 of the print heads, which i think means the ri3 does have more maintenance required simply because you cant get away with a semi dirty head because colors get mixed.

Hope this helps, sorry for the novel of a response. Let me know if you have any other questions, I know its a pretty big purchase so if there is any way I can help let me know.

Oh, I also found a more affordable option for supplies then buying through anajet which definitely helped my opinion of the machine, haha.



Where did you find the more affordable supplies fro your printer? I have a RI3000 and would love to find somewhere to buy cheaper supplies.

Make sure you call Anajet as well when the website is showing out of stock. I dragged on an order because they had been out of stock for days and I finally called and asked when it would be in and they said they had plenty and would get the website updated. It may have just been great timing on my part, but it couldn't hurt to ask. I wish I had done it sooner.

Re: Ricoh RI 3000

The bulk ink choices out there will not exactly match the oem inks from ricoh/anajet. These are dupont based ink like many manufacturers but there are tweaks to it.
