Hi everyone,

I am looking to buy a DTG printer, either the Brother GTX or an EPSON F3070.

Anybody have experience with these machines? What are the ink costs like? Are they any known issues with the machines? What's the support like?

Other machines recommendations are welcomed.

Thanks in advanced.

Thanks for your input!
The Brother requires less training. You can put on operator on it with less than 30 minutes of training an be printing shirts at a productive pace.
This is something definitely to consider, in my region there are no local agents/technicians to train, set up, fix these machines. We would have to fly them in from the U.S which is quite expensive.

When we get new equipment, I have to learn the machine myself and train staff on my self taught knowledge.

Epson is a good machine, with a lot of customization options
Color accuracy is important to us when printing. Does the Brother allow you to tweak colors in the software?

In wide-format banner printing we use ICC profiles to tweak colors. Does the DTG industry use this?
