Ricoh DTG printer owners, whether you own an AnaJet Sprint, RICOH Ri 1000 — or any machine in between — we want to hear YOUR story! Day after day, we see your beautiful custom-printed apparel appearing in our social media feeds. We see all those “likes”, “loves”, and comments from your customers and fans and it always makes us want to know: What is YOUR DTG story?

Did your DTG business start off as a small home business that grew into a full-fledged company? Or maybe you’re still working your day job and just started your t-shirt business as your side-hustle? Everyone has a story about how they got to where they are today. We want to hear your story — and help make that story even more of a success!

Be sure to submit your entry by September 30, 2019!
