Digital Garment Printing Profits | Lowest Cost Per Print

Digital Garment Printers all have one fundamental thing in common. They all use ink.

The amount of garment printer ink is used in printing shirts and the cost of that ink serious impact on the cost of your end product. In a competitive market, that may mean the difference between a profitable job or not and in how you price your work in relation to the competition.

The cost of doing business is going to be the same no matter which printer you use.

  • A quality blank t shirt, like the Anvil 980, is going to cost everyone about $2.37 from Sanmar.com.
  • You will pay your employees the market rate in your area, and so will your competition
  • Depending on where you do your production work, it’s very likely your building overhead, electricity and other ancillary costs of doing business will be roughly the same.
  • Many times your customer is bringing YOU the artwork, so while talent and creativity are important it won’t necessarily effect the cost of your production work.

Here is what that means to your business, if you use the M2 to print 20 shirts a day

What are the KEY factors in how much you can make doing direct to garment or digital garment printing?

The most obvious, trackable and easily measured KEY to profits for your shirt printing business is the cost per print.

Cost per print, and more clearly the cost for the INK in each print, is what makes the M Series Industrial Direct to Garment Printers the most profitable digital printers on the market.

Because of the cost per print using P30i garment printing ink that comes in every M2 and M6 it is less expensive to print a design on a t shirt than Epson DTG, less than Brother DTG, less than Anajet, less than Kornit and every other brand.

According to publically available pricing information to date, here is how significant the difference in ink costs are by liter for a few of the competitive printers. The following percentages are how much more costly the inks are vs. P30i Inks and the Ink Savers Pro program from ColDesi:

All the ink you’ll use in a digital garment printer doesn’t end up on the shirt itself. Ink is used up during head cleanings, maintenance and is lost as a normal part of the printing process. That means that each one of the percentages above is magnified by how often cleanings are done, how much ink is used during each one and how efficient the ink distribution system is.

The M Series from ColDesi is high efficient in all of these categories and that just adds to the increased profitability!

Workflow certainly has a big impact. Workflow is generally how an order moves through your business. It starts when you take the phone call or get the order and includes everything from artwork production, packing and shipping and printing the custom t shirts that happens in between.

The point of a good workflow is to maximize the number of shirts you can print in a day.

The M2 and M6 Industrial Direct to Garment Printers have some key features that make you more productive. Multiple shirt printing, removable platens and a hyper efficient RIP software – all of which are discussed in this article. BOTH printers excel in flexible and efficient workflow and that will mean more profits for you and your business.
