Default Need Water Bottle Troubleshooting

Hi Everybody,
This is my first post and I'm still learning from sublimation. I'm doing some test on aluminum water bottles and having a hard time finding what's the casue of my problems.


The white bottle shows black dots in lines even when I pre-cut around the logo and paper had no square lines, I was pretty sure the paper or the bottle have no dirt on it. On top of it some parts of the ink look cracked.

If someone can help me out on what could be the cause. Thanks

Looks like you have ink on your rollers or other part of your printer. Doesn't matter what ink, paper, printer you have you are picking it up from the printer. It is very hard to see this on the paper but it becomes very clear once pressed.

Ok so I think I figured out. The problem seems to be some gear-like rollers at the end of the printing area inside the printer. I looked for it and seems to be called pizza rollers.


I opened the printer remove a couple of them and that area on the paper seems totally clean.


I wonder if somebody knows if I remove all of them would there be any trouble?
