Re: direct garment printing

My guess is give the DTG another year and we will see some amazing improvements. They are already very good but they will get even better. Everything does. I've read where they are really trying very hard to improve the white inks. As they are now, they still clog up too much and require frequent cleanings to keep them flowing correctly, but they are making improvements rapidly with this technology. I am going to get one too.

Re: direct garment printing

...... The biggest hold back with them is the cost of printing with white ink. A 10" round image will cost about $5 ink to get a good print, far more than screen printing costs.......

Wow, is that true? Is it because you have to make several passes to get a good white? I have kind of fallen behind on my DTG "homework". I am hoping to see some good news about DTG at the upcoming ISS show near me.

If I had the funds to do so at this time, I would jump into DTG printing.
