It's not that I print the whole day. It's that when I print, I need to clean the nozzle plate and do a head clean.

What is happening, is that if you are not cleaning the nozzle plate of the print head, your head clean will never get rid of the residue that you see in your picture. And that will affect your printing after a few shirts.

Firebird ink is a great product, the CMYK washability is unbelievable! I had a white t shirt washed 20 times already, it still looks amazing!

The white ink takes a bit to get used to, because it is so different than dupont. One thing about the FB white ink is that it doesn't seem that it will ever clog! My nozzle checks are always perfect after a simple head clean. That is a bit more difficult with dupont.
