What is the brand and model of your printer?
What is your rip software?
What is your Windows version?

Humidity is definitely important for most DTG machines because the ink is water-based. We try to keep the humidity at around 40-50% because if it's below that then your inks can start clogging up your print head. More information about what's wrong with your prints is probably needed but I hope this helps a little

Default Re: HELP

below 55% its a no go to me, the best results i have its on 80% humidity im in a room with no windows so it cant be affected by the outside weather, and keep youre machines away from any air flow



Do youre mainteneces, keep youre Printhead / Capping Station / Wiper Blade immaculate


spread youre prints trough the day so the machine is always running, program automatic head cleanings if youre away mora than 24 hrs, invest in anti clogging solution

High humidity helps with the inks but what is your printer problem?

Humidity is a factor for sure. The DTG M2 is factory recommended to run optimally at 40 to 60 range.
Below you can experience ink starvation, capping station issues with gears grinding.
If it is too high it could be laying down excess ink. Back it off in the rip. Set your white ink at 90 percent or lower depending on the humidity in the room.
