All the DTG machines can print on Black garments, just make sure that they are 100% cottorn for best results, or at least a high blend of cotton blend with low polyester %. The white inks are very good today and require less maintenance than in the past.

I have a Brother GT541 and LOVE it! We've been able to work around the white ink limitation once customers see that the ink isn't think on top of the shirt! It's a much softer print and our customers really like it!

All the machines supplied by DTG can print onto Black cotton garments or high cotton value poly/cotton blends.

when I looked on the Brother site, in the FAQs it says it can't print onto black shirts because there is no white ink...how do you set it up to print on Balck cotton garments/ Is there white ink designed fo rit?

I have a t jet t1 refurbished with the bulk ink for white on black shirts. Waited 3 days to use it and now its toast. The place I got it from says they will make me an offer to buy it back. HA HA HA I spent 7k so far and now need another 600.00 to fix it this time. When it works its great when its broke jobs stack up and people think you suck. And as far as support forget it they always want to call you back, and seldom do. DONT BUY FROM EQUIPMENT ZONE THEY SUCK.

whatever you decide on, make sure the after sales service of the company is excellent if not great. These machines tend to become behavioral at times so it's best to have a technician a call away. sometimes paying extra is worth it.

Thumbs up Re: Best direct to garment printing

Sorry if this was repeated, but Anna Jet has introduced its "spirit" version direct to garment printer which they claim is capable printing on all sorts of fabrics: cotton, nylon, poly and blends. With this in mind, can you guys help me if there are other machines capable of printing in all fabric materials? and if so, is there anyway you could recommend the best?
thank you all.

We have been using our DTG viper printer for a while now, and we are very happy with the results, including our ability to print on dark garments. There is more information here:

direct-to-garment printing

but in a nutshell, you can print on just about anything these days. We've been successful printing on towels, shirts, boxers, canvas, golf balls, etc.

Also...you may want to check out t-shirtforums.com for updated information. This thread is very old.
