Default R Jet 4

Hi all,

Do any of you guys have any experience with Resolute's R Jet 4 ? Is it any good? I know it's a rebranded Rainbow printer. It looks very much like a normal pc printer, therefore I'm very curious about it's performance. Apart from their website I couldn't find much info regarding this printer. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Greg

Default Re: R Jet 4

based upon your post, I would bet you are from the UK...but nonetheless, this printer seems to be exactly the same in appearance and operation as the 'smart printer' from DAS which is an excellent unit and if I were buying a DTG today...that would be my choice. I have seen it in operation and it is amazingly simple..If it is the same type unit, it is based upon and Epson 4800 or the equivalent EU model. the Rjet 4 does darks and DAS has stated their system capable of doing darks, but they will not sell it as such...probably wise move as doing darks is such a PIA...or is for me...as I could never get the pretreatment down correct.

Morning Greg

I'm not sure where you are in the UK but I'd suggest you speak with Colin @ Resolute. Ask him for some samples and I think they'll be exhibiting at the forthcoming Printwear Promotions show at the NEC Birmingham Printwear & Promotion – garment decoration and promotional clothing/merchandise news & information

You're more than welcome to my place to see the NeoFlex in action

John

I can confirm that the RJet 4 is the same as the Rainbow and Smart Garment printer. They are all made by the same company in Europe and while some versions dont print white or have other small changes they are fundermentally the same machine.

Its very well made and its concept is simple, to keep to the bear minimum the number of changes required to the original Epson and as much as possible use the Epson built in technology where ever possible.

Its not as versatile as some machines because of its design, but it does have its own advantages because of this.


Best regards

-David

Hi Greg,

You are more than welcome to call me or call in for a demo. We have many printers spread all over the country and you are welcome to speak to any of our customers (R-Jet or ink).

We also sell a pre treatment machine eliminating most of the skill in preparing dark garments for print.

Charles, I will be performing live print demonstrations at the Long Beach ISS show using white ink this month. Please drop in and say hello :-)

Yes we can print from iphone 4, iPad & ipad2 to multiple printers, this is an extra to the normal price but not by much. Way cool though :-)

This is mostly use for monitoring what staff are doing but is a very useful training/support tool.

Thanks everyone for the input, very much appreciated. So judging from your posts, RJet4 looks like a good choice.

Colin can you confirm, will Resolute be present at Printwear and Promotion this year?

Hi Greg,
Yes we will be at Printwear & Promotion http://www.printwearandpromotion.co.uk/stand a30

If you are new to the DTG process we also host the Direct to Garment seminar on the Sunday & Monday. This explains the process, new developments and this year proven figures on what profits you can expect to earn and how much this will actually cost you in consumables.

Over the last year we have studied different sizes of business, what replacement parts they had to purchase, the average call out to each printer in the first year and how much they earned. It does make very interesting figures and before anyone asks yes the returns are good. Also DTG has thrived in Europe throughout the recession and we will prove this in the seminar.

The show will be very busy, I look forward to meeting you Greg.

Regards

Hi Colin,

Just out of interest is it possible to expand into printing accessories such as hats and pillowcases or canvases with the r jet 4?

If not will you be adding this function in?

Cheers,

Josh

You can print canvases, bags and many more promo items. No caps though.

Amazing. That's more than what I need to start my business off.

Where in the UK is your business based? How can I go about getting a sample or perhaps booking a visit to see your machine in action?

We are based in Derbyshire, all the travel details are on the website. If you would like a demo just call the office and we can book you in, before the Printwear & Promotion show at the end of Feb would be wise as the show is very busy.
