Good job on the printer! I just want to ask if you wash the shirt, will the quality of print will also fade? Thanks!

MrJohnson,

First of all YOU DID AN AWESOME JOB!

I envy you because of that.

Can you share the step by step pdf guide that you mentioned on your previous comments that you didn't follow? I checked the link of your finish product that you have shared here but I did not see any instructions . I sincerely like to do like what you have done. I am from the Philippines and I am planning convert epson 1400 or T1100 but I really dont know how to start it. I would also appreciate if you can provide me other references that used during the development time.

Thank you so much,
Jonjon

Hi Mr Johnson,

I went through your youtube videos and phone one for iphone case printer.

As you might remember it is something I am working on, you actually referred me over to these forums several months back.

Just wanted to know what ink type you used on the phone cover. It appears that the print wasn't that tidy in terms of results, do you have any feedback of the print quality would like to hear from your experience.

Thanks.

Hi, I still remember you

On that video I used Dupont DTG ink, however I give up on that project because I need some other kind of ink. The print quality was pretty bad because the iPhone material doesn't seem to like my dtg ink that much

Also if you worried about registration & accuracy just make sure you do a good maintenance in the rails and feeding roll.

If you really want to customize iPhone cases you should do vacuum sublimation, it's easier and faster.

thanks for your reply mate appreciate your feedback.

well from research i have found its not the ink that needs changing, its the precoat so you can still have some success with it if you play around with the precoat, im looking into it now myself hope to find something decent at the end of it

Johnson is right - go with sublimation for phone cases.

why would you recommend sublimation smalzstein?, I assume it too will still need a precoat? Any particular advantages for using sublimation ink? Thanks.

no no, I mean sublimation heat transfers.
Those papers you print in and heat transfer to the cases.
