Break Even Month Simulation GT-341

  1. This ROI is intended for illustrative purposes only and based on specific assumption as follows:
    1. Cost of GT-3 (341: $19,999, 361: $21,999, 381: $24,999) paid in full;
    2. Ink cost used in this simulation is all based on the standard retail price of individual ink cartridge sales.
    3. Ink cost per garment is estimated based on a national average which was calculated from data collected on over 600,000 prints from more than 150 different GT3 printers being used by actual customers. White Ink and Pretreat (PT) cost only applies to models GT-361/GT-381.*
    4. Estimated maintenance overhead per garment is based on a normal 8 hour shift and 20 day work month including regular white ink maintenance and auto cleanings.**
    5. Average number of garments printed per hour includes pre-treatment and final ink curing process time.***
  2. This ROI does not include costs for utilities, rent, shipping, labor for design and sales, and all other forms of overhead expenses not specifically set forth above.
  3. All of these assumptions can vary significantly based upon individual factors.
  4. Brother International Corporation makes no representation, warranty or promise that these numbers are typical or easily achieved. Results may vary.
