First round wash test is done and photographed.

As soon as the 300+ photos get done exporting, I'll post them up as a reply in each contestants thread

Spoiler: at least 2 entries did not do so well in the first wash...stay tuned.

Interesting developments, impact could be the faded words on the front or possibly some of the white hues on the back print on the walls. Tough call but interesting enough. But I'm just guessing off of image previews during initial reviews.

haha, you crack me up glupo! You'll be fine, I'm sure your shirt still looks great!

Unfortunately, chances are pretty good that my shirt may have flunked the wash test.

I took a gamble and used a new brand of shirt for the contest, one that I hadn't used much prior to the contest. It's Justin Walker's Phoenix DTG Apparel which is a truly AWESOME shirt for DTG printing! Unfortunately, I never got a chance to do any wash tests on it before I submitted it ... so there's a really good chance I used too much PT.

I see 2nd place slipping through my hands as I type .........

The Phoenix brand deserves better .......

It's an awesome shirt ........ I repeat, awesome!

The operator? Not so awesome!

Sorry Justin ......

Rodney ... please be gentle on me when you break the news.

I'll be washing the t-shirts 2 more times before declaring the final results, but the photos from the first wash test round should go up tomorrow (the photos are still exporting as I type this)

I also use phoinex, do you have viper one, im at about 4.5 turns with viperone. so as long as you didnt do like 2 turns with a ahanes tagless you should be fine. I should be fine because did pratice wash before printed file, but still get nervous because it sat in a poly bag for 5 months, dont know if that would effect anything.

Yep, I used the ViperOne ... can't find my notes, but I was probably in the 4 to 5 range for the contest shirt. I've been using 5.5 to 6 turns lately with good results.

This contest is most respectable DTG Royale Print Off in this industry. All applicants are so nerverse on final announcement. actually torture them. Lol.
Who will get best honor in this industry? More than 100,000 members from all over the world are watching. Does it makes you more nerverse? Lol
Rodney, do you know the song "Killing me Softly with his words" "tear whole heart" etc.
Hope it will end sooner for all waiters! Good luck to all!
1 st wash judgement took 12 days. Two more wash test to go means?
But be patient do not go to see doctors, lol.
Rodney needs tons of clear pictures taken for the fairness is taking long time. Imaging 300 pic shot and upload without any confusion of who's is who's. Sounds lots of work to me.
11/15 Post.
