We also use teflon, not paper, during the pretreating process.

Make sure you back off on the pretreat until you see the threshold of a good/bad print, then use the appropriate amount. Too much pretreat and the shirt won't launder well, not enough and well you know what happens.

If that's what works, then just make sure to wash the garment at least 3-4 times to see how it fares. It's more relative to the garment itself.

So you use a teflon plate on the heatpress to push the fibers down during the pretreat process?

Thanks

I use a semi hard ink roller to press the fiber down, place a Teflon sheet on the shirt and press. Remember to let the steam out every 20 to 30 seconds or so. I actually flip the sheet over each time. Just my routine.

Either a Teflon sheet or a Teflon cover for the press itself.

Hello,

I have some question, because I'm a beginer with the epson f2000.
Generaly the prints are perfect, but somethimes we have some mistake.
If I would like print a hole white text or graphics, for example on red t-shirt, then under the print will be visible a little the color of fabric.
I made same pretatment method, then the black shirts, same ink setting. What does may the problem?

Where can I setting, the printer will be have a little waiting time the white layer between the color layer?
I read the user manual of the printer and i didn't find this feature.

Thanks the help!
