Default Garment Creator Print in Black and White on a Colour Shirt

Hi there.

I've just bought an Epson Surecolor F2000 and I am using the software provided with it, Garment Creator.

I want to print a picture which is black and white, in a red t-shirt, but I'd like the printer not to use the white ink where the black parts will be printed. I mean, the black parts should be printed directly on the garment, without the white underbase.

When I used our old Viper DTG with Kothari Print Pro, we had an option named "Dark Color Shirt", that printed just the way I wanted. And I can't find a way to do that with Garment Creator.

Is there a way for me to solve this problem using Garment Creator?

Thanks for your help.

From Ray in our support department:

You do not have control of each color separately. The reason why an under base is applied lightly where the black is printed is so the print has the same consistency across the entire image.

You will have to pretreat the tee for the white ink. The black ink is not meant to lay on top of pretreatment there for you need some kind of white under the black for washability. In GC you cannot control how much white is layed down under the black ink. It makes up it's own mind. Third party RIPs such as Digital Factory and NeoRIP will let you control this manually.

You could dial it down to zero white under the black ink this way but I wouldn't do it that way. I like to run about 10% - 20% white under my black ink when printing on colored tees.
