I had obtained my DTG from a guy who gave me Pigment based inks with it. It is a 1430 build from this site. And I struggled for a long time with dark ugly off color prints, did color profiles and all that stuff, no help. I eventually found out that my ink was completely wrong. Sure pigment based ink might be the way to go professionally for a printer based of running that, but a 1430 is made to run Dye ink and That’s just what I needed to put in it. Once’s I cleaned out all the pigment ink and put in dye ink like a regular printer I was good to go! As long as you heat press the shirt to set the picture the ink won’t disappear in the wash. The big thing that threw me off about the pigment ink is that it said for Epson based DTG on the bottle, but meant professionally DTG, not my dinky little Artisan lol. Hope this helps!
