Join the DTG Revolution with RTP Apparel

Image Armor Partner RTP Apparel Starts a DTG Revolution

Join the DTG Revolution with RTP ApparelThe manufacturer of the DTG industry’s first widely available Ready To Print DTG shirt, RTP Apparel, announced June 29th that they are reducing pricing to help get people to try the pre-pretreated shirts. This DTG Revolution in pricing is only for a limited time and allows the wide spectrum of DTG printers to try out the product that will free them from the fun process of pretreating.

Each tee is priced down to $2.50 a shirt for S-XL and in white or black shirts. The RTP Apparel shirts allow you to print ANYWHERE on the garment without having to pretreat. Front, back, side, even over the sleeves.

“We are especially excited for people to see the difference on the white tees – the vividness and image clarity reveal any other printed medium out there and it can be done on DTG” said Brian Walker, founder of RTP Apparel. “We wanted to celebrate the Fourth of July weekend with something special. This great country had its own revolution over 240 years ago. They had freedom in mind and we want to help start the DTG Revolution. To help people be free from pretreating.”

The RTP Apparel shirts will be available for a limited time in July for only $2.50 per shirt. You can learn more by visit the RTP Apparel website or can order shirts directly through their online store

New R-SERIES Image Armor Inks for Ricoh GEN4 Printheads

Image Armor is excited to announce the release of the new R-Series DTG Inks for all Ricoh GEN4 printheads.

The new R-Series inks maintain the legendary characteristics of our original E-Series inks which include:

  • 35 Second White ink cure time
  • Incredible Stretch-ability
  • Great Wash Fastness
  • Intense and Vibrant Colors
  • More Cost Effective than Competition

The R-Series inks work great with Anajet mPower series prints as well as M&R M-Link (that uses the GEN4 printheads). Since these printers are generally faster than other printers on the market due to the higher output of the actual printhead, one of the biggest hold backs with standard inks will be the cure times. Standard inks used take 90 to 180 seconds to cure the white ink (1.5-3 minutes). The printer can often times print faster than you can cure with a standard heat press. This is a major problem for anyone pushing numbers through their shop. With a 35 second cure time of the new R-Series Image Armor inks you can now keep up with your DTG printer. No more waiting around. The bottleneck now becomes the printer – not curing the ink.

Combine the speed of these printers with the new RTP Apparel shirts that require NO pretreating and you’re off and running in a major productivity enhanced environment. 

Increased throughput, cost per print, and overall quality make the new R-Series inks a great addition to your shop. Find out more by talking to a dealer that carries the new R-Series Inks.
