Default Garment Printing

What does anybody think of the Brother Gt 541 garment printer, for starting a buisness.

Hard to answer.

Do you have a written business plan? Do you have a written marketing plan? Have you budgeted adequate money to support yourself and the business (and allow for advertising and marketing campaigns) until you can reasonably expect profitability? Do you have experience in the garment printing business? How have you gone about determining market demand? How have you gone about setting your prices? What mix of products do you plan to sell?

All of these things are a whole lot more important to the success of a garment printing business than the make and model of equipment used. I know people who started successful businesses printing by hand (only moving to automated equipment when the business volume and revenue justified it), and people who started out with the most expensive state-of-the-art equipment and failed miserably.

Generally speaking, it's not the tool, it's the skill and determination of the operator that makes the difference.
