If your company sells printed t-shirts as its primary business, buying your own t-shirt printing machine can be a way to save money rather than having to outsource the printing. However, regardless of the type of business you run, owning a t-shirt printing machine may make sense as a marketing tool, because a printed t-shirt is essentially a billboard for your company. A t-shirt machine will allow you to print a large supply and offer the shirts for sale or hand them out as giveaways to clients and prospects. Selecting the right machine will depend on your needs.

Step 1

Choose the type of printing you would like to use. When it comes to printing t-shirts, there are three main processes: screen printing, heat transfer and digital printing. Each of these types of t-shirt printing requires a different type of machine. Generally, a digital t-shirt printer is the most expensive type of machine, because it is the easiest to use. Heat transfer imprints generally do not last as long as digital or screen prints but are usually faster. Screen printing is usually best for mass production.

Step 2

Ask colleagues or other machine users for recommendations of quality vendors and machines. If you blindly search for a t-shirt machine vendor, you may be overwhelmed with choices. Taking the time to find a quality vendor based on outside recommendations may save you from later problems with your machine.

Step 3

Research pricing from local and online vendors with good reputations. Compare costs on the same or similar machines from vendor to vendor. Ask the vendors directly what is or is not included in the price of the machine.

Step 4

Consider ancillary costs. In addition to the cost of the machine itself, you will also have to invest in things such as ink or other chemicals that may be necessary for the proper operation and maintenance of the machine. Delivery of the machine may be an additional expense. Energy is an often-overlooked cost that may vary from machine to machine. These extra costs may outweigh the cost savings offered by a particular type of machine.

Step 5

Check the warranty. Reliable manufacturers will stand behind their products. If your vendor does not offer you a satisfactory warranty or guarantee on your machine, consider another one, regardless of the apparent value of the machine.

Step 6

Negotiate terms with your vendor. While some vendors will require an immediate cash or credit card payment for the machine, some sellers, particularly for larger machines, may offer payment terms over time. Determine which type of payment is in the best interest of your company. While paying over time may help your cash flow, the added interest expense will increase the overall cost of the machine.
