First, determine your market. Do you need a 1.8 meter width sublimation printer, 2.1 meter width printer, or a 3.2 meter. What is available? What do your clients need most consistently? If you know that most of your clients order dye sub fabric banners that are 8 feet wide or tall, then a wider printer may be a better investment. If you're purchasing a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th unit, and you know that you have a lot of waste on your larger printers, you may need a smaller printer.
Next, we want to see our prospective printer in action. If you have a trusted rep at one company or more that can take you to some print shops that print with one of the printers or more that they sell.
If you can, talk to the press operator or the head of the printing department about the pros and cons of the equipment you're looking at. You may find that he or she might prefer a dye sublimation printer that the rep who sent you there does not sell.
The more information we can gather, the better. It is best not to be in a hurry to purchase major equipment such as a dye sub printer, but take your time and research as much as possible before making a major purchase.
Also, if you are new and just getting into dye sublimation fabric printing, you may want to do some market research. Who are your clients? Are they currently purchasing dye sub cloth banners? If so, from whom, at for how much per square foot. Is there growing off shore competition driving pricing down.
What about government regulations? Have you factored in waste fees? You can never ask too many questions or do too much research. Unless you are the type who can't make a decision. Ever. Then you have other issues.
