Let’s face it – you own a G4 DTG to make money!
And the amount of shirts per hour you can produce will determine how profitable your printer will be. When printing a light coloured shirt with no white ink a 10 x 8” design will print in 28-36 seconds, approximately 70+ per hour.
Dark shirt printing the same 10 x 8” design will require a base white print and colour top print – it will produce in real time and amazing quality 32-36 shirts per hour at this size.
If you are printing a larger design, then it will be slower, so safely assume between 1.45 minutes to 1.55 minutes on average for a bigger design – the equates to 30-32 shirts per hour.
