Hi all as I'm a new member greets from Poland. I've been reading this forum and googling and still can't find the answer. I'm looking for a decent DTG printer but at reasonable price for a start - ideal one would be easy to maintain and cost under 2500$ (excluding ink etc).
Of course I have found some that would suit but are way beyond my reach - don't have spare 20k right now.
Hope you can point me to right place, thanks :)

Hi and :welcome:

This is still just outside of your price range ($3-5K) but one option is to look for programs like this one at the bottom of this page, also refurbs and used:
AnaJet Trade-In Program

Check other mfg's for this type of program as well. Good luck to you.

My advice is: If you have to start that small it might be better to find someone that has a printer and will print some shirts for you until you get going. That might be hard in Poland though.

Well, I think I can eventually get more money, $3-5k doesn't seem that bad. I'll do some more research to find out more about these T-jet models, thank you.

abmcdan: it would cost me too much to outsource my projects to make any reasonable profit.

And btw: recently I found this: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWfGWZpMZXU[/media] ($900 tshirt printer).
That's too cheap to be good enough though, just wondering if there's any discussion on these chinese printers on this board.

Thank you for posting.

Not sure any are easy to maintain. There seems to be much more maintenance that a convention ink jet printer anyway. Ours requires daily and usually a couple of times a day cleanings. And we are in a very clean work area.

That's a pretty good printer! Wow! The color is amazing!! Thanks for posting! Live it to the Chinese to find a cheaper solution (now I'm just curious about the quality of the machine) but still pretty awesome!

looks great doesnt it? almost to good to be true? thats because it is..... another person here actualy got the ink and the $900 printer, unfortunately the fixing agent doesnt work...... they have promised to send me some samples for free once the games in china have finished (i wont be holding my breath), if they do i will test it and report back.

It looks like reactive ink being used in that machine.
The fixing agent for reactive ink is a soda solution.

Well I've got an answer form this guy.
All info is online:
SAMSION SCIENCE
SAMSION SCIENCE
BUT I'm pretty sure the machine would live max like 6-8 months and I'm not sure about the quality of the prints and sure there's no teh support.
Although I'm in no rush about that so better wait for some reviews :)

Someone from the forum has contacted this company and ordered products which I believe didn't turn out to be a good transaction. I would lean on the caution side of doing business with them. You can find used original Tjets for under 2500. You have to really look and be patient. They will pop up and you need to be ready. I passed on 2 in the month of July. I found one on craigslist and the other on screenprint university. Good Luck

I agree with Chris if you can wait, you can find a deal.I realize the inexpensive printer looks good and I would be tempted to give it a try. .... JB
