Okay, so that's quite the assumption. If it's a strong assumption, then it might be worth it. But, first you must spend ~$20,000 up front to get the DTG printer and the pretreat machine. And then you have to factor in all the rest of the stuff like costs and time to see if it will be worth it to you. Here is a guy who shows the costs of his prints on this video. Then you have to calculate in the cost of the shirts, shipping, ink refills, and whatever else goes into the production.
