Wow ... #16 would be my Neo brother Gerald (Glupo). And from the preliminary pics, it definitely looks like he deserves the top spot! What a great looking print, both sides!

I hope mine makes it through the wash test ok. I hope Gerald's doesn't ... haha, just kidding Gerald!

Lots of other great prints this year ... tough competition! Gonna be really tough to beat Glupo's print for sure!

Good luck everyone!

i was happy to be in the running behind John (VTG) and then Glupo's print came along. i had a partially clogged damper, but didn't catch it until later. now i can definitely tell i didn't get enough white ink down as compared to John and Glupo. i also think the shirt plays a big role and i wasn't too happy with the Anvil's handling of the pretreat. it was fun to do, and it's great to see the strong showing from my NeoFamily!

thanks, Rodney, for all your hard work on this!

Why did you use anvil, thought we all had to use American apparel in rules. I had to do many test before print because I don't normally use American apparel, it's not my first choice but used cause thought we had to.

American Apparel was recommended, but any ringspun shirt was allowed. Anvil was recommended as a good option, but it needed more preatreat i guess. or it could have just been my white ink starving, but i definitely didn't get enough white ink on the shirt.

personally, i don't like American Apparel because of their sleeze-ball CEO.

congrats on your print. it looks great!

Gerald,

I hope wash will hold up on yours. You said you printed June. 5 months later test? No one did that in record.

PS. Spelling on your signature.
we don't do DTG we do NEO printing, its on a whole nother level.
Another? Or intention?

Waiting on results sure isn't good on my stomach or sleep pattern. I hope results are before thanksgiving so I can eat some turkey. Lol.

I would love to know what machines printed what. I don't now everything about printers but maybe others could give tips since no one got a perfect score.

#16 = Neoflex

I believe you actually scored 1 point higher for this challenge then Justin did in last years contest prior to the prewash event.

Looks that your right. I think that is because this year design is a lot more detailed with all the fades,glows, highlights.i would never consider my self better than Justin. He's been around a lot longer than me and I know I could a lot from him.

Arrow Re: The Second Annual DTG BATTLE ROYALE (print off) is here!

I understand what your saying, but for this evolution of testing the scores show a higher point scheme. So in essence you are setting the bar for next years competition should your overall point average be higher then his after the wash cycle. This is no different then the way Justin set the bar for this years competition.

Per knowledge wise, Justin is in a totally different realm then most of us. He'll probably forgot more then what we will retain, and his format is a good one to learn from. Heck think I bugged him enough times with emails asking for permission Lol.

Actually we did participate in the 2nd Annual DTGBR by doing the robot design piece

On a serious note we had a project come in that really took up our focus, and I didn't want to deviate from it till I knew we were over the hump and could breath with the order.

Still contemplating the pretreat, but running out of room in the shop. So might have to open the side to make a bit more room.

Looking to possibly add Silk Screening, or Sublimation to the office arsenal. Undecided but time will help me sort things out. ops found the i-Neo Link so doing some reading up on it
