Or something else.......................

June 1st is the release date officially.

Plus, as a spoiler, by July 4th, we'll have another new product hitting the markets.

I really hope so. Brother is doing a disservice to its users by not actively working on a pretreatment able to print on Poly blends garment. I have turned down so much work because a lot of customers complaint about the shrinkage of 100% cotton. No matter what brand. Print comes out beautiful but after a wash or two the shirt shrinks up to three inches. Customers ask for 50/50's and it is impossible to print dark garment with Brother's white ink. I always suggest the customer to go a size larger for 100% cotton to make up for the shrinkage issue. If anyone knows of any pre-treatment that works with Brother's white ink let me know. Image Armour at this time doesn't have the ability to do that.

A heads up, no one is doing dark polyesters, or doing it well at the moment. It is an ink/pretreatment issue - synthetic fibers are not our friend in the printing world (at least on BLACK and dark polyesters).

White polyester is a breeze with IA LIGHT. It looks like sublimation. But, this is about something different........

There is no mention of what type of fabric it works. Poly blends? 100% poly? or just cotton.
