Default Printing on Flour Sack Towels

Hey all, hoping for some insight.

I am running an Epson P600 from Open DTG on their manual(non-motorized base) and am looking into getting into printing on flour sack towels. Thin, 100% cotton towels, popular as dish towels and for drying glassware etc.

The towels are 30"x30" so when they are fully open they dwarf the size of the platen and become hard to manage. When they are folded as they would be in "presentation form" they are roughly 5"x13.5" which makes it much more manageable, BUT, that does not give me the necessary clearance between printhead and substrate.

The question here is: is anyone else printing on these with a non-motorized base? If so how are you managing alignment? I'm really struggling with artwork placement and not clipping seams with the printhead.

Default Re: Printing on Flour Sack Towels

We actually manufacture flour sack towels and looking to buy these machine, but after doing many test printing on sack towels, It appears the quality of the print's looks excellent. Coming back to your question the way we print is as follows

We open & lay the down the Towel flat and print at the bottom center so when you fold the towel it's folded in hanging position and then then size becomes 9 x height of the towel.
