I knew the day would finally come when Kornit would make an affordable (clear throat, hide wallet) Garment Printer. I mean...let's just say it's less than any of their other models. Here is what I hope
I'm hoping that it has the same level of quality and performance...it sure looks like it does. The new printer is called Kornit 921 Breeze, and is can be operated from any computer, laptop or desktop, without the need of an air compressor..yah finally. The Kornit Breeze 921 is industrial and yet designed to allow garment decorators to use all of their purported high-end technology benefits at entry-level costs. The printer uses Kornit`s proprietary pigmented ink and the Kornit QuickP Ripping application.
The Kornit Direct on Garment printers are and have always been an excellent printer..but I would not say the inks are affordable. They say that State of the Art technology has been used to manufacture these printers (well, I hope they're not put together in the basement of Scott Fresners house. The machines have been designed and built from the ground up using a box beam frame that virtually eliminates vibration, linearized electro-magnetic motors for optimal efficiency and low maintenance, Spectra printing heads that are manufactured for industrial use and an innovative, yet simple ink system. (man...that does sound juicy)
As with any garment printer on the market...the Kornit printer is designed to be operated by one person without any need for film, screens, etc. There are no set up costs. Tests can be immediately evaluated and changes implemented without delay.
Garment decorators can earn substantial profits imaging short and medium size runs. Kornit has developed a unique garment ink specifically formulated for digital printing that delivers superior results not seen in the market today. The water based CMYK and White inks work in combination with a wetting solution during the curing process, causing the pigments of the ink to stick to the fabric. This special ink can be printed on many types of fabric (up to two inches thick) that can stand traditional curing conditions, such as 100% cotton, cotton/poly blends, Lycra, silk, canvas, linen, etc. Wash fastness of the ink is very good with an ISO rating of 4 on a scale of 5 (the same as plastisol inks). The inks are highly stretchable, non-cracking and have a soft hand. The white ink is used as base layer for the CMYK inks and also as a Super White highlight. Well.....that all sounds good to me......who's the first person going to be that buys it!
Garment Printer Ink,
Wanted to take some time to say Thank You. When I first bought my Anajet Direct to Garment Printer. I was excited about being able to increase my Sales thus increase my Profits. However, over the course of time I started to notice that I was not making any real money. Sure the orders were coming in but I was spending a fortune on ink. Which ultimately was killing my profits and pocket book. When I called Anajet about lowering their prices they would not work with me. That is when I researched and found Garment Printer Ink. I contacted GPI and explained to them that I was hesitant about purchasing ink and using it in my printer. Needless to say after I purchased some ink cartridges and pretreatment I am completely SATISFIED! The ink and pretreatment I received from GPI was the exact same that I had been purchasing from Anajet and now I'm able to be way more Profitable! Since purchasing my supplies from GPI, I have not experienced a single problem. Thanks for all the support and GREAT Customer Service. Any time I've placed an order you have always shipped it out that same day and have had no problems receiving my shipments. Thanks once again!
Thanks again for catching that with the black ink!! That is great customer service and shows that you know your customers!

Wicked Skatewear has been ordering direct to garment ink supplies from Garment Printer Ink for over a couple years. From order placement to items received, we are elated to have this business relationship! It's so easy and affordable! Also, we've tried to sub in other brands or find other suppliers over the years to cut costs and have been extremely disappointed. We promise not to look anywhere else for our DTG needs :)
Thanks a bunch B-train
