Re: MS-ONE (EPSON 4880) - initial setting, workflow

I bought second-hand MS ONE (EPSON 4880 based) dtg printer. It was supplied with Match print II rip software. I got quick instructions by previous owner and full of the enthusiasm I started to print the t-shirts...

Now I have a lot of question with setting of the machine pretreatment and finishing of the t-shirt. Becuase I am affraid, that I do something wrong.

I am using IMAGE ARMOR pretreatment liquid. I was instructed to dry the pretreated t-shirt by 175°C for a 90 sec. Is it enough?

During printing I am using templates od setting which was created by previous owner. There is a template for white backround (dark t-shirt) and template for CMYK top layer (or white t-shirt). But I was litle bit surprised, that backround is set to approx 800 x 800 dpi and CMYK layer set on approx 1400 x 700 dpi. I think there should be the same setting of resolution. Or not? Because with this setting the colors donīt look so good.
When I tried to change setting of both templates on 1400 x 700 it seems there was too much color in the layer and after first washing print started to crack. But color were good

The last question is connected to drying of the printed t-shirt. I was instructed that I can put t-shirt to thermopress set on 175°C for several second (10 - 15s) but that this is not important because color can dry even on the air. But I am affrait that it is not correct and wash durability of the t-shirt will be poor.

Thank you in advance for any comments
