We are looking at possibly making the investment in these printers. I have seen some say that these are for short runs and is cost prohibitive/time prohibitive for larger runs. Yet I have seen some people use these large runs such as above.

Where is the break on cost and time that you would goto contract screen printing or plastisol transfers? I am trying to do a ROI on this printer and currently I am only planning on short runs and event use with it. But if it makes sense to do larger runs then I can modify my ROI.
