Brother GT-541 Garment Printer
The Brother GT-541 Direct To Fabric printer allows you to put any graphic on a flat piece of material. Print on t-shirts, bandanas, sweatshirts, fabric shopping bags, your own material for sewing projects, etc.
After 30 seconds in the heat press the image is permanent; we have seen it survive many, many trips through the washing machine.
BOSS class is available to show the operation of the machine.
- 14" x 16" print area
- Can print on black background, but has no white ink so the end effect is up to your artistic intent.

Tips & Tricks
Centering Your Image
If you want your image to print in a particular location (who doesn't?) I suggest using sewing chalk. Mark the corners of a 14"x16" square on your garment and then align those marks with the corners of the Platen.
