Default After curing no soft print

When i curing a dark shirt 90 seconds the print on the shirts geels not soft, what Goes wrong is these the brand of shirt, pre-treatment, wrong software or other. I used GC, is Cadlink or other software better?

How are you applying your pretreatment? How much pretreat did you apply. Could be a problem with how you are pretreating.

The brand of shirts you use plays a big role in the quality of the print also.

Try a little less pretreat and see if you get better results.

Hanes Tagless 5250
Jerzees Hidensi-T
Fruit of the Loom HD

Available only from limited distributors:
Cotton Heritage MC1080
Key MC180
