It's ok as long as you don't get any staining. I will get Andy to call you in the morning to go through the different options.

I assume you mean white shirts pre treated with light pre treatment, until you have the experience I would recommend a test print.

Make sure when you switch from light to dark treatment & vice versa you flush at least 300ml of water through as the two don't mix very well.

Light pre treatment is very forgiving, some customers spray onto a sheet of grey board to check the spray pattern before running it on shirts. You should be using number 5 for dark pre treatment.

I hope it all goes well, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

As long as you hang them or lay them flat (not folded) they will last for months. They must no be subjected to excess moisture, we have them on our rails in the showroom for months with no issues.

One thing, before you pre treat a large batch, make a test print to make sure you have the correct amount.

Hope this helps.

You should remove it every evening and soak it to be on the safe side. We do have a lot of customers who don't, this can lead to a short life for the nozzle.

Any other questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Yes it will work in the R-Treat but it is not fully developed. It works a treat, it washes well but the shelf life is not good enough yet. Once we crack this & we will it will be out for beta testing.
