Default It's winter time - Watch your humidity levels

It's that time of year in many parts of the country where it's the cold season and we crank up the heating system to stay warm. The unintended consequence of that heated air is a low to no humidity level in your building. All the T-Jet models (and all brands of digital garment printers) work best at a humidity level of 40% to 80%. You WILL have printing problems if you let the humidity level drop too low. This is the time to invest some money (very little) in a hygrometer to measure the humidity in your printer room (digital ones can be found for $10 to $20). You should also have a humidifier (room size units run from $50 to $100 at Home Depot, Lowes, Sears, etc.). Use both to maintain proper humidity in your work space and you should have a trouble free winter.

This also holds true throughout the year in dry climates such as Arizona with "zero" humidity. Avoid problems - humidify to proper levels.
