So You Want to Buy A DTG Machine? Read This first.

You have been to the trade show.

Watched the videos.

Seen the machines run.

They gather crowds.

The possibilities are endless!

You could print anything.

Then you see the price tag. Uh oh.

Welcome to Direct-to-Garment Printing. Arguably, one of the decoration methods that will transform and potentially eliminate screenprinting forever. Still, the technology needs to advance heavily in the next decade to completely eliminate your screen rooms and the need to haul around heavy gallons of messy ink.

DTG printing may be a great solution for your business. If you have intricate designs, and low quantities that need to be printed, DTG printing may free up some of that press time.

Although, you should remember there is a large learning curve, a heavy investment and quite a bit of maintenance that needs to be done once you buy a machine.

Be careful of those low-end machines that have an appealing price tag. They may have several limiting factors and the quality may hurt your business if you are not careful. Be sure that you have researched the machines thoroughly, and that you have seen or learned about another shop using one before you pull the trigger. The last thing you want to be is a guinea pig for a machine you know nothing about.

Before you reach out to make the investment, be sure that there is a need for it.

How do you ensure if there is a need for it?

In today's printing network, you can offer DTG printing before you even own a machine! How?
