What are the lowest priced options for Direct-To-Garment printing?


What makes & models are out there overall and at what prices?

Which ones will print white?



Here's a list of models I know of so far:

  • Fast T-Jet / T-Jet II
  • Brother GT-541
  • Flexi-Jet
  • DTG Kiosk
  • DTC-4000 NaturalLink
  • Kornit
  • Mimaki
  • Tex-Jet

I didn't even realize there were that many out now. Here is the link for the Fast T-Jet entry level model: http://screenprinters.net/product.php?pid=tjet2

They are far too slow and expensive for my taste right now. If you do a lot of multicolor work it is nice, but if you're just doing basic 1-color to 3-color designs it seems like this wouldn't have a very high ROI.

I know one of our members here, Printchic, has owned a Fast T Jet and a Brother.

She wrote about her experiences a few times; most recently in this thead here:

I may go to the ISS Tradeshow in Long Beach coming up to see some in person. But if anybody else has any information, it would be great to post it here :)

[there is another one] that will be available in August that is based on the 4800 like the FlexiJet but the cost of this machine will be alot more affordable than anything of comparable quality on the market.

That's the beauty of this technology, something always gets better and prices eventually decrease.

Nice! :)

When I originally made this post, I didn't know that so many DTG printers out there were based on off-the-shelf epson printers.

At this point, I've been doing some tests & I'm just going to build my own :)

There is a thread going on at inkjetgarmentprinters.com on the subject right now.
