CASTLE DONINGTON, U.K. - March 31, 2023 - PRLog -- DTF vs DTG Printing On T-shirts Cost Calculations

Let's flip quick calculations based on a fictional scenario of a 50% selling profit margin. First, we need to buy the product blank. We buy 50 t-shirts for £100* and it costs us £200 to print a full colour design, our overall product cost would be £300.

Here is the cost comparison below, prices are accurate on date of publishing (March 2023). Here we have calculated two sets of prices; Direct to Film and Direct to Garment financial outlay printing costs per unit.
  1. Epson SC-F2100 DTG Printer: £1.21/unit
  2. Epson SC-F3000 DTG Printer: £0.39/unit
  3. Roland BN20D DTF Printer: £0.21 + price of film
  4. Xpres Q1T DTF Printer: £0.29 + price of film

Your per-unit cost would be £4 for the t-shirt plus printing: DTG £5.21/unit and as low as DTF £4.21**

**Remember the DTF priced do not include the outlay of DTF film.

To sell at a 50% margin, you can multiply the overall cost by 2 to determine your unit price. Therefore, the ideal selling price for your t-shirt could be more than £12 (using the max print per unit cost of £1.21 together with £4 for the tshirt). Potentially you can sell at a higher profit more if you are selling a high-quality cotton t-shirt, or an in demand meme of the moment, doesn't this sound splendid?
