Default Re: White Ink - Newbie Thread

Finally got some pretty good results with black shirts! Done through a combination pretreating for longer with an air compressor + Digital Factory.

I also noticed that in the Brother CookBook, they stated that anything with white ink should be dried through a conveyor or a box rather than a heat press. I have neither so I used my heat gun to dry it. Getting pretty bright results.

As for the Speedtreater, I might have to hold off, as now I'm gonna be buying the Digital Factory so I guess I'll spend a few bucks to ventilate the pretreatment area. Gotta save $$$.

Downside is, I've got a 2 month lead-up to my business with low ink usage. It looks like I'm just gonna be wasting the ink away. Any advice for this? I hear switching to 361 is a pain.
