Both pigment and dye inks from Epson will stay on shirts using the right transfer paper. Dye inks will fade more than pigment.

Well, Epson makes a DTG printer. So, yes.

If you're referring to desktop Epson pigment ink, I'm not sure they sell other than cartridges.

All DTG printers use pigment ink.

It would, in all probability, mostly wash off.

Pointed to Splat,

What I meant to say is all DIY printers start out with either dye or pigment ink from the factory, but....you either start with a new printer and do not install the original carts or you must clean all of the original ink out of the lines before installing the textile ink.
