How Much Ink DTG Printer Uses

Many people are using DTG printer nowadays, but do you know how much ink you use each time you print something? I decided to analyze and I came up with the results below.

The calculation is based on: 125ML / $33

First DTG Print


  • Quality: Medium
  • White underbase: NO
  • Size: 9.44in x 9.72in

Approximate ink cost: $0.17


Second DTG Print


  • Quality: Medium
  • White underbase: YES
  • Size: 30in x 23in

Approximate ink cost: $3.77


DTG Transparent Background with white underbase


  • Quality: Medium
  • White under base: YES
  • Size: 14in x 6.9in

Approximate ink cost: $1.66


As you can see, the ink cost can change a lot depending on the design and if it have a white base or not.
