    Suggestion: Make a DTG section

    I think there sholud be a topic, strictly regarding the direct to garment printing, because threads about it are shattered all over the forum. Please, consider this mater.

    DTG section

    I am very much interested in seeing a dtg section. I'm certain there a number of members here that are into dtg and would like to separate the nuts from the bolts.

    DTG; is that similar to silk-screening or using a special type of printer? I love wearing art!

    Please don't give a machine for print garment, she is a very bad idea, one t-shirt is good and one is bad, you must clean manually the printhead you must, you must, you must....... you must do more thingh, i have one, but i don't use it, i print with laser printer and heat it, is more , more speedly. Buy it for me is an error, but it's possible that with the new tecnology they are betterm but i don't think so.
    Bye Bye friends

    Are you saying I must not buy a car because I can get in an accident and die? I own two dtg machines and do what is needed to keep them running. Your experience is yours please do not impose it on other people.

    These experience are not only mine, but i write from italy.
    In italy 90% that person haved buy the similar machine are very very bad word for these machine.
    I don't know what is the answer, is it the printer head? is it the bad ink arrive in italy? is it a little number of t-shirt printed? is it the machine buyed?
    I don't know the reason but i don't want do a discussion for nothingh, i explane only my and other person experience. Very bad.
    Now you know what i will do??? i want buy a laser printer with white toner.
    I print with laser oki whit five color 4+white and i print specular and i print with the sheet for white t-shirt.
    I hope will be a good experiment. whit this metod i have resolve the problem.
    Sorry if someone reseller of DGT but i repeat i speak for experience.
    If you have a problem whit a machine you can do one thingh only...............

    Great for you Mark. My dtg machines I built at a low cost. I can not afford ten grand for a printer. The oki pro-920WT is a nice printer but cost way above what I'm willing to pay for a printer right now. I would have to be making about that much money per month to make that kind of investment.

    print quality

    Hello
    Agreed the technology has a way to go.
    We have a DTG Viper and although it is possible to get really good prints from it,
    it will mess up on occasion, usually a head alignment, a blocked nozzle or some thing
    with no reason for happening. The maintenance is daily due to the way the ink works and the ink has a very short shelf life so you might have to flush out the whole system
    every few months. That and the ink does not have the durability of screen printing.
    But with correct maintenance and a good amount of work to justify the machine it does
    open up another source of business.
