Hmmm... I don't think you can have a reliable printer that's cheap I have a Fast T-Jet2 printer that I am very happy with. I looked at Kornit 931D, Brother GT-541, and DTG Digital Kiosk before deciding to got with Fast T-Jet2. As I said on my previous post on the T-jet feedback thread, digital garment printers / direct-to-garment printers or DTG's has a long way to go before becoming truly reliable. What I mean by that is that DTG's are still quite far from being as reliable as traditional manual/auto presses, if ever. They're great for small orders though

Hello Joey,
With you being from New Zealand, I would suggest you contact Steve Richardson at DTG Digital www.DTGDigital.com through the website. They are in Australia, and are the direct manufacturer of the DTG machines. For service, and many other reasons, you may want to deal direct with them or get a distributor through them in your area. As a dealer here for the technology in the U.S., I can assure you that DTG Digital will always work to solve any problems with the machines, inks, and technology to work as smooth as possible for your operation. Tell Steve, and DTG Digital /Australia that LipChip sent you to them.

Hi
Just found this forum
We have Brother and it will not let you down should you choose to buy one.
We love ours, it is plug and play as a lot of people say and it does a great job.
never had a mechanical problem (knock on wood)

Good luck

I have only see good things written about the Brother. Unfortunately, it does not print white ink. 85% of the jobs we've done were on dark shirts and needed white ink.

Does anyone here have an Anajet DTG printer and how does it compare to the others?

Genrally from our experience The Kiosk II gives very good consistant prints with little maintenance. The white is very good. The D1 works very well, just requires religious maintenance procedures. Anajet needs about 3 passes to get the same white deposit. While one pass of 3 channels on the Kiosk II or one pass on the D1 with 8 channels of white comes up pretty close, but here speed is far better.
