I have several zip up hoodies on hand I will be trying early next week. I will let you know. My only concern so far (as I haven't turned the printer on yet) is the limited amount of travel the Epson has as compared to the only other printer I have used, the Brother 541. Anything bulky is probably going to be heat pressed as flat as you can first. In the past, baby clothes like onesies were the worse.

In case you need a bit more clearance to print on a really bulky garment (say an especially thick hoodie) you can remove the platen height indicator for about half an inch of extra space. (Actually 0.4 inches.)

It should take less than 10 minutes. You'll find the instructions on page 60 of the user's manual.

I have found on wood that if you treat it with white pretreat first, then do a print as you would on a dark colored shirt it works great.

One of my biggest sellers is quilting squares with photo prints. I don't have DTG but do mine with sublimation.
However you could do it with DTG. You can spice up the photos with fancy frames, etc...
They love them around my area. I've found that a lot of quilters have tried this but with the store bought iron on transfers that don't feel nice & only works half the time. The DTG prints would have hardly any feel & would last long. Check it out with some of the quilters/sewing groups in your area.

Prestretched canvas panels are very inexpensive to buy and easy to print. The results very nicely mimic a hand painted portrait.

Do you just cure ink with heat press for the canvas prints
Sounds like a great idea
Thanks for posting

Just let it air dry. You can use a heat gun to speed the process if you want to.

But there's no need to worry about washability. When was the last time somebody washed a painting

Has anyone try using heat transfer foil with DTG printer, thinking of designing some art with both ink and foil and was wondering can the inks on DTG printer be used. CMYK or white gives better results?

Yes, had answered this on a different thread. You can do foil with most every direct to garment printer model. We'll make up a video showing it done on the Epson F2000.

On the topic of printing on canvas. I been doing that ALOT. I go to Hancock fabric, buy white or black 100% Cotten canvas for $6 a yard.
Then I print photos about 8x12. Then to be different I cut a 1x8 board 12 inches long. I Wrap the canvas around the board and staple it to the back. Then cover the back with a 1/8 inch piece of paneling with a wall hanger.
And sometimes I spray high gloss polyurethane on it for some shine. Or shellack just to protect it. They go over well!

Thinking of printing my hang tags for my clothing brand using canvas
Give that old vintage sailing cloth look for Tshirts
Could nest them and print 20 a time each one could be personalized with actual name of shirt design

This is on canvas wrapped around a 1x8 piece of wood. With a 1/4 inch piece of wood for backing and a wall hanger. I'm going to extend my image to wrap complete around with no canvas showing on the sides from now on
