The only head ache you may run into is you may need to change temp/speeds when you go from drying pretreat to drying your ink. All this depends on what ink set you use and what type of pretreat because all those will vary.
I was reading that i needed a forced air dryer. I usually dry the pretreat at 320 for 20 seconds twice.. then print and cure the ink for 90 seconds 2 passes. I use Gamut ink.

Any suggestions on starting dryers? Or dryer you have experience with that works good for you?
