Hi David,

It sounds like you are having some issues with your pre-treatment process. I will again state on the record that printing on dark garments does require more practice and training than printing on whites. With consistent pre-treatment you will get consistent prints on dark garments. Are you also having issues with printing on white garments?

I will be glad to forward our latest white ink manaul to you if you need. Please drop me an email at [email protected]

Thanks

Hi,

I have problem when print using whiote ink and then color layer. There is a slight border of white around the graphic. Is it normal?
Maybe you know how to eliminate it?

Wojtec,

If you are using RIP Pro you can adjust your choke in the Configure menu. With the latest Print Pro you can create your own choke layer.

Hope this helps

I don't own the machine you're talking about (I hope to soon though!) and I don't know the software, but all I can suggest is doing a google search on 'trapping', and within trapping read up about 'spread' and 'choke'. This will explain why these terms are the solution to your problem. If you still don't understand, just PM me or post back here... and I'll try and help you through it! Good luck!

Default Re: DTG Kiosk

We sell the RIP Pro software here in the US marketplace, Europe is selling a mix of RIP Pro and Print Pro. I would suggest that you contact your dealer regarding the choking issue. You can also get a password from your dealer and get onto the DTG Forum where there is a location dedicated to Print Pro.

For those of you watching this thread and wondering about the choke issue and why it arises I'll give a breif explanation. When you print two layers of ink (one white and one color) at different resolutions (1440x720 white and 720x720 colors) they will never perfectly line up, inkjet printers don't work that way (if they both are the same resolution they do line up). Add to this the fact that you are laying HUGE droplets of white ink down (so they tend to spread out a bit) and you will occasionally get a bit of white peaking out from behind the color. Solution, set a choke on the white layer to slightly "trim it down" until no white shows.

Hope this helps

The choke options in Rip Pro are useful. I didn't have a problem so much in Print Pro, but Rip Pro seems to get the colors more accurate.

I decide to buy the DTG Kiosk. They said me 12 500 euro from Australia.
But i'm not sure is it a good machine , can someone said more details about it.
Can it really print on dark t-shirt , how much cost the ink for one garment in the bigger size. And much more things.

Default Re: DTG Kiosk

We have a DTG for only a few months and you can see some of what we have printed at twinklegoldstar.com/print/index.html

The thing to remember is your money maker is printing on light colors. White ink is expensive and your cost of pretreat on top of it. Buy yourself a good foam paint roller. When we pretreat we roll it with a foam roller afterwards to get it soaked real good and then heat press it. And if you have a think layer of white as an underbase let it dry for awhile or make it dry with a hair dryer because sometimes the color will crash and you will get bleeding. For just one shirt we do not use the power sprayer to pretreat. I use a spritzer sprayer from Pampered Chef and it sprays a nice fince mist and then use the roller and you don't get the overspray. It is a hassle to get the power sprayer out for just one shirt.

But push the light colored shirts!

We have difficulty we peoples thinking right now they think if they only order something in 1 color it is cheap but they do not realize it doesn't matter to us how many colors and you tell t hem but it doesn't sink in. For example a one color print on black costs us more to do than a screen printer if you add your costs of pretreat, ink and the shirt and some money for our time. We have a screenprinter nearby that only charges $1 per item one color so we just try to push people into more colors so they will ne used to seeing something more vibrant and when they see a one color it likes dull.

Good luck on your printing.

It sounds to me like a dirty capping station. Try turning the machine off, moving the head off of the capping station and putting some cleaning solution in the capping station, then press the INK FILL button. If the capping station empties quickly then the ink fill pump and capping station are fine, it may be the factory Epson pump that has failed or is clogged.

Let us know how it goes.

I would suggest that you replace the Epson pump assembly, this is a standard Epson part that you may be able to get locally if your distributor doesn't have one or is not close to you.

Hope this helps!
