Default Skipping on white ink

Iím starting a small student closing shop for my school in France. Iím almost done converting an Epson P600 into a DTG printer thanks to David from ufoprinters. Iím now focusing on inks.

I want to order DuPont inks but I still have a hesitation. Should I stick to light-colored garments? I know that white ink is cause to many clogging problems and pretreatment seems to be a hassle. Moreover, I donít intend to print a lot. Demand will not be high enough to ensure daily prints and even if it were, the printer wonít be in use during breaks. This is bound to worsen the clogging issues.
On the other hand, I would love to be able to print on all types of garments.

What would you advise?

Thanks a lot
