DtG have good quality but cost a lot of money and also have a lot of maintenance!i've done alot of vinyl stuff and then decided to buy the oki 8432.. i am not pleased with this system as the quality sucks.. sooo that being said i'm wanting a system that provides graphic capabilities that vinyl doesn't but that also provides quality.. some issues i had with the oki was that it was very inconsistent. the hand feel felt like plastic even with the rip software. should i go DTG or is there something out there that's better?
This machines must work every day to avoid serious issues !
I believe the best option is to invest your money to a screen printing equipment and also make 2-3 screen printing courses!
Screen printing have top quality ,a top soft hand in black T--shirt and the equipment cost it less as a DTG!
You can apply also screen printing to almost everything (t--shirt ,posters )
I was in the same boat with you and after a lot of research a decided to go with screen printing!
My quest was also quality and soft feeling black T--shirts
