Hello everyone, in today’s video we are going to discuss some of the best inkjet printers for screen printing.
Best Inkjet Printer for Screen Printing
Screen printing technology is one of the modern methods in printing and is now used worldwide to print on t-shirts and more. The technology is so simple that people are able to run a t-shirt business right from their homes.
The easiest and cheap way to print the designs on film is using inkjet printers. People might argue that a laser printer is the king of printers, but it is not, not in this case. An inkjet printer that is cost effective and can print on wide films is the one you want to purchase. Given below are 5 of the best inkjet printers for screen printing.
1. Canon PIXMA Pro-100 Printer
Priced at just under 500 dollars, this is one of the affordable ones and because of the offers given by Amazon, the price is lower, most of the times. It has all of the features of Canon PIXMA Pro models we have discussed so far so I wouldn’t get on to that. It can be used to produce wide screens of up to 13 inches with an impressive resolution of 4800 x 2400 dpi because of the FINE technology Canon uses. Canon is also giving a limited warranty of one year for this printer.

4. Canon PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II
Canon is a name known in both the photography and printing industry for the build quality and durability of their products and the Mark II maintains the same name.
