I’ve read a lot on direct printing in Printwear magazine. Our business currently prints more than 30,000 pieces a year manually. What is the best printer to buy to print on white and dark without pre-treatment?


A better question to ask might be “what printer will work best with my business.”  Purchasing a D2 printer is a major financial decision for many businesses and it should be based on a detailed analysis of individual needs. Once you gain more knowledge and understand which D2 printer will complement your unique type of business, you will realize which D2 printer will be the best for you.

There are a few D2 printers that can effectively print on light colored garments without a pre-treatment process but, at this time, all D2 printers require a pre-treating process before printing white ink on dark-colored garments.
