Epson F2100 questions
 
Hey Everyone,

My Epson F2100 is coming next week. I have a couple fun questions for the crowd if you don't mind.

What was your favorite shirt created with the epson f2000/f2100? (Do you have a pic?)

What was the worst experience you've had DTG printing?

What is your favorite tip or trick to do something outside of the box?

What was the strangest thing you've printed on?(Screen Printers chime in too)

Thanks Guys, Can't wait to be part of the club!!!

What was your favorite shirt created with the epson f2000/f2100? I have a F2000WE Anything with lots of bold colors or complicated gradients inside the graphic that can show off DTG's real power.

What was the worst experience you've had DTG printing? Fighting humidity and making sure shirts are really dry when you go to print them. I'm in Seattle and before I knew better about how pre-treat works and how much moisture affects the image, I constantly fought with the humidity in the shop and wrecked so many shirts it hurts. We now have a de-humidifier that runs full time in the workshop to keep the printer happy and what little sanity I have left intact.

What is your favorite tip or trick to do something outside of the box? For fun or vintage shirts try laying a piece of crinkled parchment paper over the wet ink for heat pressing instead of a Teflon sheet. the crinkled texture gets lightly embedded in the ink for a fun affect.

What was the strangest thing you've printed on?(Screen Printers chime in too) I printed a banana on a pair of boxer style underwear so that it hung in a very naughty place when they were worn. That was a fun one.

Thanks Guys, Can't wait to be part of the club!!!

Silly questions for a practical guy like myself.
I have no favorites, and nothing is strange... It's all subject to perception.

As for the printer itself... It is a good machine. But remember, there are no miracles.

Keep your workshop climatized and your expectations low, to avoid disappointment.
