I had been creating t-shirt designs for several years and I wanted to make it a business.
- I knew that I had to get a printer for my basement business, but I wasn’t sure what I needed.
I found a small printer that gave me a 16 X 20 inch print space. The printer used Direct to Garment Printing technology and it was made by Epson. My home printer was Epson and it was the best printer I had ever bought. The DTG printer uses inkjet technology so the designs can be printed directly on the t-shirts. I didn’t know the technology had been around so long. They have been making changes in their technology to make it user-friendly. They have also made it easier to get the designs printed and to the customer more quickly. The DTG printing machines come with hands-on training and support. The printer is perfect for small amounts of t-shirts. It has self-cleaning technology which means there is less ink waste. Unlike many t-shirt printers, this one was able to print on all colors of t-shirts, including black. There is a special white cartridge, along with the colors that are common with printers. I was able to order a print preview and I was amazed at how vivid the colors were and how nice the print looked. I was also able to make an appointment to see how one worked and find out how easy it would be to use. I’m pretty sure that I will be buying one of the printers for my business. They offered me a great payment plan that makes it even more affordable than I had imagined.
