Common Questions

Can it print on dark t-shirts ?
A: Yes, you just need an A3 printer with 6 cartridges and a RIP Software like EKprint or Acrorip!

Is this updated ?
A: Yes! This e-book was updated awhile ago and you still get online support if you need assistance.

Is it difficult ?
A: It depends on the person’s skill, for some people it will be really easy and while others might need some assistance, but we’re here to help so don’t worry.

Is this friction or belt system ?
A: Friction. This project is aimed in creating the cheapest DTG using minimal parts so we will only use the parts inside the printer and some woods. You’re free to upgrade as you wish once complete.

    Im just wondering this part, in your new version on page cover & description it says, assuming that you already disassemble epson etc.. does it mean that you just referring to outer cover or inside the parts/ components? I’m planning to buy this, but got little stuck with this thought. can you please clarify?

    • Hello Sheriy
      Thanks for your comment!

      I’m referring to the outer case and some interior parts but with the newer version available now it covers most parts now.
      There’s a free disassembling guide available at:
      It covers 80% of the process and the e-book covers the remaining parts.

      You will get online support so if you run into any problem just contact me 🙂
      Let me know if you have any other question.

      Kindly regards

    do you have a guild on how to do it to the epson c88+

    • Hello Joshua,
      Thanks for your comment!

      Unfortunately no. You may have seen a video on YouTube in our channel of C88+ DTG but I never made any plans for it.
      The reason is mostly because it’s very unreliable and performance is very poor comparing to A3 models.

      If you need a DIY DTG you need an A3 model, it’s faster and has a great performance comparing with A4.
      Let me know if there’s anything I can help you with.

    ok, I made the DTG according to the ebook and had a few problems, but it was my mistake and after I contacted the staff they helped me find the error and it’s now fixed.

    Printed 12 shirts so far and no problems yet.

    thank you so much!
