Which begs the questions "How many t-shirts can you print using white ink before a major part fails?"

Re: Epson SC-P600 Error Codes and troubleshooting

I bought a board from Compas Micro with the understanding that it was not set up by Epson and would not likely be able to get it to run. I gave it a shot by downloading an image from a good P600 board I had but that didn't work. Hence I gambled and lost $80. It sounds like the board you bought was n...

Re: P600 first use: Epson original Ink or Textil Ink?

Yes, use the Epson inks and make sure you've purchased a chip resetter and a set of refillable cartridges which you will use to flush the ink lines when you change over to DTG Inks. Best way to flush the lines is with wicreset.

If I had only waited a year and knew what I know now I would buy one. Timing and knowledge are everything! ;)

Re: Shirts that print the best

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...

Re: Printing Over A 24" Length

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.
