And as far as support forget it they always want to call you back, and seldom do. DONT BUY FROM EQUIPMENT ZONE THEY SUCK.

What do you mean you waited 3 days? Did you have ink primed and didn't run it for 3 days? I have a t jet 2 and I am worried about the printer head clogging.

Anajet, Fast T-Jet and DTG printers all print on dark shirts. They all put down a layer of white ink first, then on the second pass put color down on the white ink.

We have a Kiosk 2, it does a very good job, has little maintenance and keeps on printing.

Do your research for your area, find who supports their product locally, look into replacement part costs and availability... there is more to it that buying the printer...

Our research put the Kiosk 2 on top, for economy and quality...

Hello Joey,

Im currently working with the Kornit 931-DS, This Printer is pretty fast. I really prefer that compared to a DTG-Digital like the Xpress model with 12 pallets. The Kornit pre-treatement system is genious and so useful. Also the air and fluid systems are really well made for production usage. The white ink result is perfect for a lot of materials. I think, Kornit are or will be the leader in bubble jet textile decoration. The new 951 presented in the SGIA show on Vegas have 13 printing heads 8 CMYK and 5 WHITE to gain 25% in speed.
OK its not a cheap printer but With that You are in business.
Thanks for your comments.

In my experience with DTG printers, most of them weigh a ton. Few of these printers weigh less than 100 lbs. Plus, if you look at the companies that use DTG printers, the most successful ones use the most versatile DTG printers.

The AnaJet I use has beat out my friends, just because his print head broke and he has to spend 4K on new parts. Mine fell off my truck, and I spent $800 fixing the head and housing.

There have been lots of changes in direct to garment printing, dtg printers, etc since the last post in this thread and so the "best dtg printer" changes all the time! I'm prejudiced, but think that right now the DTG M2 is the best t-shirt printing machine for under $30K. The platen system that comes with the M2, allowing for printing 2+shirts in a production run, just makes the "interface time" much less than the others on the market .. and that leads to more profits.

how do you make money with these machines? How do you market them? I have a small embroidery business in Northern Ontario wondering if it's feasable
