Investing in a direct to garment (DTG) printer and other equipment that’s tailored to your individual needs and requirements is crucial. Otherwise, you may be left with an inadequate machine that fails to meet your customer demand and needing to further invest to rectify the problem.
There are various factors that you must consider when choosing the right machine for your business – performance, quality levels and cost – to name a few. Investing in these machines is a big decision and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. To help you with your decision, in this post, we’ve highlighted some key machines that are suited to businesses of all sizes.
When it comes to DTG printing machines, it’s no contest.
This is the latest DTG printer from ever-popular Brother. It’s the perfect machine to slot seamlessly into your production line and help take things to the next level. It’s durable, built to last and is suitable for businesses of all sizes. Therefore, no matter whether you’re a small startup business or a global enterprise, this machine will be there for you.
You’ll notice that the machine is compact and small in size. However, don’t let this put you off – you shouldn’t underestimate the power and speed that the machine contains. Both of these are key features for the perfect DTG machine for your business. That way, you can turnaround orders quickly and welcome new projects and partnerships.
By appealing to a mass audience, you’re broadening the pool of potential customers. Therefore, by increasing your product range and not closing yourself off by trying to be too niche, you can be more inclusive of a wide spectrum audience. The GTX Pro is compatible with a wide range of materials, so you’ll be able to turn your hand at the latest trending products.
From fabric printing to wood and canvas, this machine works well on a wide range of different materials – and it ALWAYS delivers. No matter whether you’re printing professional work uniforms or personal memories onto a canvas, you can be sure that this machine will get the job done with no compromise on quality.
DTG is a straightforward printing method at the best of times. However, with the GTX Pro, it just got a whole load simpler. We didn’t think that was possible! With the inclusion of an automatic cleaning system, you needn’t worry about having to regularly clean your machine – it looks after itself! Of course, it’ll still need some level of attention though.
This means that you can save time on cleaning and more time producing products! Therefore, your machine can be constantly running and you can be solely focused on the areas of your business that are driving revenue and making money. Rather than worrying about the cleanliness of your machine and whether it’s going to affect printing quality or not.
The GTX Pro is one of the fastest machines in the industry. The speed on its own is impressive enough, however, when it’s working ultra-fast and still managing to churn out incredible results, it’s even better for your business! Due to the machine’s speed, your whole printing process will be a lot quicker and streamlined.
When streamlining processes, it means that your overall operations will be a lot more efficient. That could be the difference between turning customers away or welcoming those extra jobs in! Wherever you can save time you should do – your business will thank you for it indefinitely. Plus, it’ll make busy periods seem like an absolute doddle in future.
The machine includes a new industrial white print head, which means that cleaning the machine is further streamlined too. Firstly, you won’t need as much white ink to flush out the machine and secondly, less cleaning means more time is saved.
In our opinion, the Brother GTX Pro is the only direct to garment printer that’s worth seriously considering. It’s streets ahead of anything else within the industry and will improve your production output and efficiency indefinitely. With that in mind, there’s no point introducing industry-leading machinery in one area and neglecting other service areas of your business, is there?
While you may have a powerful DTG output with the introduction of a new machine, if the other areas of your business are inadequate, then it’s not going to make the desired impact. After all, DTG isn’t the be-all and end-all of your production output, is it? Usually, clothing manufacturers opt for various printing and embroidery methods to provide a well-rounded service.
If your business focuses on embroidery, it’s worth checking whether your current machine set up is up to the task at hand or is it holding you back? Are you constantly having to turn away further custom because your machines can’t cope? Are the machines forever breaking down and inflicting regular downtime periods? Both of these are signs that you need a new set up.
Of course, in the short-term, this isn’t going to be music to your ears. Having to invest in a new direct to garment printer and industrial embroidery set up can be expensive. However, it’s an investment in driving your business forwards. What may be a short-term cost will enable you to reap the benefits of mass expansion and growth in the long-run.
