We use about 23 grams or 1-1/2 turns to 2-1/2 turns or 17 grams for our dark shirts depending on the brand we are running. we use more pretreat on heavier T's and less on the thinner ones. We only use as little as 14 grams on the white shirts with white shirt pretreat.

What brand are you using with that amount of pretreat? We started with 2.5 - 2.25 turns,but felt we could go less. We use Anvil #980's.I guess we will have to start from scratch again-I do not know what to do. They look great at 4 turns.
If you have shirts and data for each brand and color, and would be willing to share it-that would be soooooo GREAT!

Also, it looks as though Justin pushes the button twice. Someone told me he lays down pretreat lighter,but two coats and that works better for him. Have you heard this-do you do it this way?
Thanks for your help.

Sally,
I watched again but still didn't see him push twice. Maybe my eyes?
Let's see what Justin will say.
Cheers and beers are on me!

We had to watch a couple of times too-Paul is the one who saw it, but it's definitely twice. It's on his website that two times are better than one, like when you spray even coats with paint-he just doesn't tell you how much he does for each shirt. I think he is planning on putting up a guide to that soon.

Go to 8:25 in the video. Right about 8:30 mark, you can see where Justin presses the button twice. Because the video is speed up four times, it happens pretty fast.

Ok Justin the question is. If printing 3 shirts in high quality mode. Can you load and make it to In and Out before it finishes. Hey logistics! An Army travels on its stomach. LOL.
Great job thanks for the video.

We use Hanes Nanos on 2-1/2 turns and Hanes Beefy Ts we go 1-1/2 turns on Gildan 64000 we use 1-5/8 We have been getting good wash tests. But that doesn't mean that my settings will work for you. We have a 50% humidity level in our neo print room and we brush very firmly with a wooster white brush from top to bottom. We tried foam rollers and found they pull off the pretreat. We pretreat with quilon at 330 for 30 seconds with firm pressure and then without any paper for 5-10 seconds to further push down the fibers. We cannot print at 14 grams as the white ink will not stay on top of the fibers for us. If I could go 4 turns I would since the cost of pretreat is so high. Don't know if that helped but thats what has been working for us.

Do you brush hard with the wooster?

I was at Justin's and watched his tech. The brushing tech was firm, one direction strokes top to bottom. But I would not say hard. Maybe the man himself will pop in and have a better way to put it.

I can't wait for beers with you after that comment!
We started over again today with testing, using 3., 3.25,3.5,4, turns, but two times with viper so it equals 3=6, 3.25=6.5, etc. Prepress first, then pretreat with paper, press again, 80 psi. Print, cure @350, hover 30 secs, med pressure 60 psi,90 secs silicon paper, 2 x's, for #980 Anvil's. Used bra on top of heat press, except for last shirt, at 4 turns, 40psi. Some say light pressure on TSF, some say heavy pressure TSF-do not know which it is.
Will let you know later after washing all day. Gone through lots of pretreat, shirts and ink with all this testing.

Hey-can you give me more "secrets":
  1. What style # shirts are they using?
  2. What dial turns are they using for blacks?
  3. What dial turns are they using for white?
  4. Do they press again after pretreat, and then again before they print?
  5. Do they hover for few seconds before pressing when curing or only if the other press is being used when curing for 90 secs?
  6. I have air compressor, psi-are they using light pressure, medium pressure or firm pressure to cure What are the psi equivalents?
  7. Do they press again with no silicon after cure to set it?
  8. If it sitcks, do they press again with no silicon paper?
  9. Do they change the pretreat amount for colors?
  10. How do they do two sides of a shirt?
  11. What environments are they using for shirts, and shirts with colors?
Sorry-not trying to be a jerk with all these questions, just inquiring minds need to know to make better quality shirts the first time and not spend so much on testing.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
