I use Gamut plus inks to print on 100% polyester shirts and anything else in-between and my Prints are always vibrant. There is also no change in print quality even when I change from one blend to another. Can't complain about the wash longevity either. None of my clients has come back complaining since I started using Gamut.

Do you use their dark poly pretreatment? Many people mention using that or Armor’s and then a regular cotton pretreatment to get results on poly. What’s your process?

Okay, voices of wisdom, its mid-year 2018. I'm moving into the DTG world. What is the status of the ability to print on 100% polyester? What pretreatments and/or processes is anyone using to achieve vibrant prints that don't fade on poly? So is DTG ready for prime time?

I don't print normal DTG, but I had a look at it out of curiosity. Apparently DTG is only possible on white and light Polyester https://www.garmentprinterink.com/sh...treatment.html
