Specially Formulated Direct to Garment Inks

A digital apparel printer’s performance depends heavily on the textile ink used. The quality of ink affects the ink flow, level of printer maintenance, color fidelity and vibrancy as well as print longevity.

AnaJet provides specially formulated, high quality textile inks exclusively for mPower and
SPRINT. Our inks have been carefully calibrated and rigorously tested to work with our patented closed-loop ink delivery system, RIP software and on-board firmware for the highest level of graphic quality and consistent ink flow performance.

AnaBright® and PowerBright™

AnaBright and PowerBright Inks have a high optical density to assure vibrant colors that resist fading. The SPRINT uses AnaBright Inks and mPower models use PowerBright Inks.

For dark shirts or applications that require white ink, our white inks are the whitest inks available and provide long lasting prints, wash after wash.

  • 100% cotton, cotton blends, specialty paper, general textile and non -textile materials.
  • Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black and White Inks.
  • Print on white/light and black/dark garments.
  • Water-based, pigmented inks are safe for people and the environment.

White Ink Technology

One of the challenges of direct to garment printing that AnaJet pioneered in solving was a way to run white ink through a delivery system consistently without clogging and destroying it. Direct to garment white inks are based on titanium dioxide (TO2). TO2 is a heavy mineral often found in white paint (titian) and food coloring. It starts to dry immediately when it comes in contact with air.

AnaJet’s recently patented Closed-Loop Ink Delivery System ensures that white ink does not come into contact with air until it is released from the print head. All AnaJet printers utilize this method to mitigate drying and clogging.

Ink Cost Per Print

A typical custom printed graphic will cost about $0.25 to $1.00 in ink for a white shirt print, and about $1.00 to $3.00 for a dark shirt print, depending on many factors. A wholesale shirt costs about $1.50 to $2.00. Customers are willing to pay upwards of $20 to $30 for custom printed shirts, so the margins on direct to garment products are incredibly high.


Water-Based Inks

All AnaBright and PowerBright inks are water-based and non-toxic. Clean up with soap and water or use alcohol on surfaces with dried ink. (But never use alcohol on a SPRINT print head.)
