Default Re: How to upload wash sample pics for DTG vs T-jet blazer


I conducted wash tests on samples obtained from DTG and T-jet. For

professionalism i won't mention names or countries.

The wash conditions were as follows:
1. 30 C
2. 30 min cycle
3. 2-3 grams of standard wash detergent
4. economy wash, so very little water used.

The first 5 wash tests were washed then dried, by air, then pics taken.
6-10 washes were not dried in between washes. After washes they were dried and

pics taken.

The sample pics were chosen to reflect colours(blue, red, green/brown yellow). The

text was to test an alternative to screen printing when printing funny slogans. The

sunflower for photo quality and the others for vector style graphics. Apart from the

sunflower which i googled, so thanks to whoever posted that, i designed the


I tried to take the pics at the same time of day, but some pics the white balance, i

think, is off, so whites appear a little blu-ish. the whites are very white still.

The first set is from DTG. A white and black T-shirt sample.
