Re: Shirts that print the best

 by ddelgrande ¦  Sat Aug 19, 2017 9:52 am ¦  Forum: Inks, Pretreat, Supplies ¦  Topic: Shirts that print the best ¦  Replies: 6 ¦  Views: 781

I bought some Bella Canvas and Next Level t-shirts.

My conclusion is Next Level is the better shirt at least from a fit standpoint according to my wife and daughter and I agree. Bella Canvas was little flimsy for lack of a better word.

Just my 2 cents.

Hotpuppy, given your background I don't see why you wouldn't go the DIY DTG route. I'm just a hobbyist who started out trying to build a DIY DTG printer using a P600. This was before Andy started OpenDTG and it was a complete waste of time and money. With OpenDTG I was able to salvage what I had sta...

So I guess I would pretreat the section for the logo and print, then pretreat the section at the hem and print and then do the graphic in the middle. This is for my own t-shirt line selling online. What I'm thinking is I pre-treat and print the logo on a bunch of shirts since that won't change. Then...

Printing Over A 24" Length

So I want to print three separate sections on the back of a t-shirt. Near the neck, I will print a logo; in the middle, I will print a graphic and on near the bottom hem of the shirt I will print text. The total distance is roughly 24" and the DIY Pretreater I built has a 24" platen. But my DIY P600...

I position the platen so that its head end (meaning where you put the t-shirt head opening) is aligned with the printhead carriage bar. But that would be a vertical position, not sure what you mean my horizontal.

Indeed, is a text file. Into the installation folder have to be a "custsize.ini" file. If is not, you have to create it.

The printer is brand new and I never even ran the factory inks through it.  Today I have had some decent white printing but a nozzle check still shows less than half of the nozzles.  Either I should not rely on a nozzle check or I will get even more white when fixed.  There are two channels that ha...

Regarding cleaning the white ink lines, I haven't used white as yet since from what I've read it requires diligent maintenance but I'm using EKPrint Studio which gives you the ability to clean individual lines.  I think if your going to use white you're going to need a program that can clean each li...
