The heavier weight paper can be used for 5 to 6 times before starting to wrinkle so, in the end, it is actually much cheaper to use.

Maybe it's time to start using the permanent teflon coated sheets for this. I'll give it a try for a week or so and see how it goes. I have some nice heavy sheets that last forever.

Teflon cover sheets put a shiny sheen on the print and also a sheen on the pretreatment spray box. This highlights the box. While the sheen should wash out with the first wash, most printers would prefer not giving their customers printed shirts with the pretreat spray box emphasized. That's one of the main reasons teflon cover sheets are not recommended to be used.

Gilden often does this.

Cure ink lightest.

I have only been using my F2000 for little over a week now and I am by far no expert. I have the fitted Teflon sheet on my press and like Harry said it makes everything shiny and highlights the pretreated area. I have found using the Kraft paper cover sheets work great. We use mostly Gildan shirts so this method seems to work really well. As long as I follow Peter's rule of thumb by adding more pressure when I pretreat and less when I cure the image everything comes out great.

Try experimenting with a few other shirt brands and you may find less pretreat and ink consumption then on the Gildan's.

I have experimented with Gildan, Next level, Anvil, Hanes, and AA so far on this machine. I know Gildans aren't the best choice for DTG but it is possible to print on them well. We have a multitude of online stores we host and I do all the printing for them as they order it and a lot of them want Gildans we just had to modify the price for the extra care they require to get a decent print. I am having a heck of a time with Gildan Hoodies nothing I print on them looks great. If anyone has any tips there I would greatly appreciate that.

I think that since most of us print mainly on dark color t-shrts because our customers love them so much I figured I'd print a white t-shirt or two. The F2000 really shines in this area. Oh man!

I am a James Bond nut so that is what I based my idea on. I took a Bond DR. No "movie poster style" piece of art and cut it up and pasted and deleted items the way that I liked them and then I found a piece of Sean Connery art that was from the same movie that I thought looked very nice. I edited that too in Photoshop and threw them all together. This was printed in Garment Creator electing to have it print twice to increase the richness of the colors and also the washability of the Gildan Ultra 2000 t-shirt that I pay usually about a buck 76 on average for. No pre-treat. Just a good flattening with the heat press. I like to use a spray bottle and lightly mist a bit of water over the t-shirt before I press it too, works great.

Very impressive that F2000 is:

I tried printing on 100% cotton hoodies. The print looked so so off the printer, but faded after hovering. ImageUploadedByTShirtForums1433554452.764063.jpg

More of a lurker than a poster but this looks fun. Been in the DTG game for a few months, so we're just really getting started. Canvas 3001 is the shirt we've settled into as our preferred shirt to print on.

Looking good. Garment Creator has the ability to knock out great prints when you do a bit of tweaking to the file. My old eyes need bigger pics though... next time? Great work.

Find your preferred garment, and stick to it.

I agree. If you can figure out just what Garment Creator likes it will perform very well for you.
