No DTG printer, no matter what some may claim, has mastered white ink technology. They all require pretreatment in order for the ink to stick, meaning they break down very fast when washed if the formula/combination of factors aren't just right. Tjet claims they have their own white ink, but I'd like to see some proof to back that up before I'll believe it. Do some research, most of those 'in the know' would recommend waiting at least a year for the industry to grow up a little bit before you even attempt to print on dark shirts.

We're currently shopping for a DTG printer and like the Brother, it doesn't need any retarded RIP software or pretreatment, and holds up good in the wash. It's simple to use, but it isn't offering white ink yet.

I'd say be wary of ANY printer offering white ink

Go to www.screenprintinguniversity.com. it's a GREAT resource for anyone looking to get a DTG because it has all of them listed in the same place, you can talk to the people who actually have them, get their feedback, and ask them questions

the tjet2 is considerably durable

we use it to go to events, parties etc and its so quick and easy it is worth every one of the many pennies

we have the 6 pallet model

the hard part is the weight

but this product is most definitely worth it

We Have owned a T-Jet 2 for a year now. When we first got our t-jet, it sucked and always broke down. Up until yesterday our machine had not printed a dark garment. After letting our maching sit for 6 months and finally getting the newest upgrades(that support sent to us free of charge) our printer is up and working the best ever. Before this last week our machine haddent spit our more than 100 shirts in a year. But since last week we have printed over 200 shirts with only a single mistake, and that being my fault on stopping a job in the middle of one and starting another. Support is great, the new upgrades are flawless. I would recommend this machine, hadnt the t-jet 3 come out which is far more advanced than the t-jet 2.

Check out Embroidery Trader. There is a special for the Fast T-Jet 3. Zero Down and 4.7%interest. Looks pretty good. I hear the Tjet 3 is much better than the previous 2

Thanks

Smile Re: Fast T-Jet/T-Jet2 direct to garment printing

What is the cost of thr jet2? I recently went to a trade so and saw a demo of the DTG. I was amazed at the quality. As far as print on black, they had a black T w/ white lettering. It was nice, but to get the quality the demonstrater said you have to make around 6 passes. It is ink jet and then you immediately heat press to cure the ink. Show price was 11k

DO, and I repeat DO NOT buy ANY T-jet machine. I have had a unit for 20 months and have spent 2 full months talking to customer service or replacing parts and have managed to get less than 300 imprints total since January 2006. I have replaced 6 heads, done countless head cleanings, driven 10 hours to get it fixed, built a climate-controlled room just for the machine, begged and pleaded, and still it will not work. Every time I called to complain their techs would assure me the next fix would work and convinced me not to ask for a refund and to this day it still sits. By now they say it has been too long since I bought it to get ANY money back but they will do a full-service for $500.00 plus shipping there and back and the cost of a new print head. Please take your money and buy anything other than this machine. Making a big pile in your yard and setting it on fire would be a better use of your money than buying this machine. Anyone want to talk about it I can be reached at 661-321-4937. Joel Mangrum
