Several years ago I discovered Digital Art Solutions at a trade show and jumped in with both feet, doing vinyl and sublimation transfers using their images and their proprietary add-on for Corel Draw, Smart Designer, and promptly started making money. Then the rhinestone craze hit and I purchased a desktop engraver to make templates…but it was so slow and limiting in size of templates. Then again at ISS Show in Long Beach I watched a DAS demo on their vinyl cutter and rhinestone system and I was hooked again. This turned out to be a great decision for me and it continues to be. I have told many that a good quality cutter like my SmartCutter Pro is almost an A TM machine in your office. I was not the first to buy into this… but pretty close to the first. No second guesses for me.
Once again I got hooked on a new method to decorate garments and purchased a DTG machine. This purchase was done without doing my homework. It was a machine…now out of production, that would do dark and white garments... This turned out to be a brutal experience. T o do dark shirts with white ink, you have to master pretreatment…what an expensive lesson for me. The cost of white ink, the cost of pretreatment and the cost of ruined shirts soon showed me that this was a recipe for disaster in my shop.
Then I chanced upon what I consider to be the best investment in the DTG business. It is the Smart Garment Printing System that is being sold by DAS. At the present price of $6,995 it is the least expensive, easiest to use, quickest to setup of any DTG I have checked out. True it will only do white/light garments, but I have had great success in printing pastel blue, yellow, orange and green. The ink cost is much less than what was being sold to me before and the loading system cannot be beat. Y ou can print a shirt in under 2 minutes, heat press for 90 seconds and presto!... you have a completed shirt that can return a nice tidy profit…add to that the customizing ideas of rhinestone additions and again you have created an additional profit level.The footprint of the unit is small, weighs just less than 100 lbs and can easily be setup for offsite printing when you have electrical power. The ink delivery is via refillable cartridges which are a breeze to use and you don't have to worry about clogged lines, or print head damage. Do not get lulled into a DTG that is made in some backroom with limited exposure, support. Some just offer a 90 day warranty. With DAS, they offer full support and great assstance in getting your business off the ground.
For me the recipe for success in the garment decoration business is the use of the Smart Garment Printer , heat press, the DAS graphics software and a vinyl cutter…The price point for retail sales will vary with your location, but you surely can beat the competition... hands down!
