How does the GO UNO compare with other methods of garment decoration?
GO UNO VS. Screen Printing
- Digital transfer technologies offer an important advantage over screen printing. Because of the need to perform color separation, ink and clean screens, and apply colors in single layers, screen printers cannot make money on custom and short run orders.
- With digital decoration, you can design a custom image, print one transfer, apply it and sell the finished product for a handsome profit. See below for more detailed profitability and ROI information.
GO UNO VS. Dye Sublimation
- Dye sublimation is a great digital process for decorating rigid substrates like mugs and mouse pads and producing extremely washfast custom apparel. However, dye sublimation only works on polyester fabric or polymer-coated substrates, and cannot be used on non-white garments without dramatic color shifts.
- The GO UNO laser transfer process can be used on a wide variety of fabrics including cotton, polyester, cotton-poly blends, acrylic and more. Depending on the paper used, vivid transfers can be applied to colored and dark garments.
- Using EnduraTRANS HS paper, transfers can be applied to a variety of uncoated rigid substrates.
GO UNO VS. Direct to Garment Printers
- Direct to garment printing is a digital process that can apply ink directly to garments. Depending on the model, black garments can be imprinted using a white ink under base. Direct to garment printers generally cost three to ten times as much as a GO UNO laser printer.
- Direct to Garment printers require that the garment is pre-treated before printing, which adds cost and time. If the pre-treatment is not applied correctly, the printed image may be unusable. No such requirement is necessary for the GO UNO laser transfer process
- In order to image a dark shirt, DTG printers use white ink cartridges containing Titanium Dioxide. The TIO2 has a tendency to settle when idle, causing clogged print heads and lines. In order to prevent these problems, daily maintenance is required. The GO UNO requires no such maintenance and produces vivid opaque spot color transfers on colored garments using unique self-weeding papers; all without the risk of clogging or damaging the printers's internal mechanism.
- Because of the potential damage from clogged heads and lines, most DTG printers only warrant the heads for six months. The GO UNO comes with a five year print head warranty.
- Curing a white ink printed garment on a heat press takes about two and a half minutes on average. Because of the extra time required for this lengthy curing plus the necessary pre-treatment, it can take up to 10 minutes to print one shirt with a white ink direct to garment printer. The GO UNO laser transfer process takes less than half the time.
- DTG printers are "one trick ponies". They can only be used to make shirts. The GO UNO is a versatile platform that can image shirts and a wide variety of rigid substrates.
