New Anajet Sprint Printer SP 200
AnaJet Sprint direct-to-garment printer. The printer prints on both white and dark shirts, using 4 CYMK sealed ink cartridges and 4 white ink cartridges (for dark shirt undercolor). It has a 12.5″ x 16″ print area, requires about 3′ x 3′ table space, and weights only 82 lbs.
Update: Anajet has announced a brand new high-end DTG printer called the mPower that is much more expensive than the Sprint described in this article. See the Anajet web site for more details.
This printer will print on 100% cotton, 50/50 blends, or synthetic fabrics (using special PolyBrightink cartridges). Many DTG printer brands do not print on polyester. Anajet also provides applications for applying metal foil to its printed shirts, as well as techniques for printing stunning 3D images on fabric. Kits and materials are available for printing artwork to canvas.
The AnaJet Sprint enjoys an excellent reputation for reliability, quality, and useability, based on user feedback. It is fast, has an easy-to-use interface, and prints vibrant colors. It comes with a limited 1 year warranty and lifetime customer support. The company provides a 1-day hands-on training course as well as DVDs, videos, and frequent webinars for its customers. Technical support is very good according to most user reports, although a weak point is that they do not have service techs around the country who can come to your business location to fix broken machines.
