Used with FastINK Textile Ink, this printer will create a very durable print that will stand up to many washings.

Small items are can be accommodated by using a youth or infant shirt holder or other optional holders available. T-Shirts are held in place by simply laying them on the specially designed Shirt board that comes with the machine.

Unlike screen printing, there is little set-up time required when printing to a T-Jet printer. After the job, there are no screens to clean, and no harsh chemicals to use.

Sample Image: 12" x 12"
Sample Resolution: CMKY 720x720 High Speed
On a White Tee:
Total Print Time: 60 Seconds ( 60 shirts per hour )
