What inkjet printer should I get to print on -t-shirts?

Choosing the right printer for printing on t-shirts can be a difficult decision, especially if you are not sure what to look for. There are many things to consider such as ink cost and quality of print. It is important that your printed image or design looks its best because this will be how people remember you! In this article we'll talk about some of the different factors that should go into purchasing an inkjet printer and provide recommendations based on different needs and budgets.

Inkjet printers are generally less expensive than laser printers and can produce high-quality prints. However, the cost of inkjet cartridges can add up over time, so it is important to find a printer that uses affordable inks. For printing on t-shirts, we recommend an inkjet printer with pigment based inks. These types of inks dry quickly and don't fade when exposed to light or sweat. Some good options for budget minded shoppers include the HP Envy 4520 All-in-One Printer and the Canon Pixma MG2522 InkJet Printer.

If you are looking for a printer that can handle more complex designs or photos, then you may want to consider a higher end model such as a photo printer. These printers are more expensive than traditional inkjet models, but they usually have higher quality and larger paper sizes - up to 13x19 inches in some cases! Some good options for printing on t-shirts include the Epson SureColor SC P600 InkJet Printer and the Canon PRO-1000S Wide Format Photo Printer.

If you don't want a large upfront cost, but still need high print volume or great image quality then consider an all-in one color laser printer such as the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M477fdw Printer or Brother HL L2340D Monochrome Workgroup Laser Printer. The only downside of these machines is that they tend to be more expensive per page to print than inkjet printers.

Whichever printer you choose, make sure to do your research and compare prices! You can find some great deals on printers at online retailers such as Amazon or Best Buy. Happy printing!
