Angry Print file not matching actual print

I recently ran into a snag that I CANNOT figure out! Every time I print this 'paws' file, the print way different than the print file. I have attached a photo of a printed shirt and the actual file I used in GC. Notice that the print file has 3 colors (red, teal, navy), while the print file only has red and navy. The file prints fine on my regular inkjet paper printer but will not print right on my f2000.

Any help will be much appreciated!

I would suggest running a color chart on whatever type of shirt your doing to give you a base idea. Then go into your print file and change the colors so it matches more of what you want. it may even make the print file look totally wrong to you but it will come out right on the shirt.

Are you using a pretreat with the white shirt or are you printing without pretreat?

If your red is that dark, I'm assuming you aren't using light garment pretreat. Would you mind posting a picture of your nozzle check? Your cyan might be messed up.
