About Direct to Garment Printer
When you first started printing your own designs onto T-shirts, screen printing by hand worked well. But now that business has exploded, it is time to invest in a direct to garment printer, or DTG printer. This digital apparel printer allows you to load the fabric and print directly onto it in one or two passes, rather than printing each color individually. When selecting a DTG model, you want to take into account the maximum print size, how many nozzles it has, and if it has auto load capabilities. Larger machines are able to print onto a 13-inch by 18-inch area, compared to standard print sizes of 8 inches by 11 inches. The amount of nozzles the machine has affects how quickly the machine prints, and more nozzles can reduce print times to 1 to 2 minutes per garment. If you print several garments with the same design, a machine with auto load capabilities is a huge time saver, as you do not need to load each garment individually. As your business continues to grow and orders increase, investing in a direct to garment printer, available from reliable sellers on eBay, is a smart decision that saves you time and production costs in the long run.
