That's me...., but I only stated the obvious, and then went on giving the info for both subjects anyway.

Solvent inkjet printers are used to make those transfers, and the ink is oil based (just like plastisol) but very thin so it can go through the printhead. The reason I mentioned this method is because it is relevant to the original subject (inkJet).

DST is a similar process using laser printers, but the quality is not as good.

I honestly thought there may be a new way of using plastisol through a specific print head like some sublimation inks???

I will definitely be more careful before I reference this forum again. Two people giving me brutally honest feedback is enough for me to steer clear unless I have all of my ducks in a row. Sorry for being green.
After reading Mike's explanation, this appears to be a legitimate question which may or may not be interpreted as spam.

But no, you cannot put plastisol into an inkjet cardrige. Don't even think about it.

(But I vote Mike gets to stay.)

you seem surprised by the assertion that your post appeared spammy
my only thrust was to point out how your post could be construed as such

people generally come to the forum for feedback, to learn or share (or some combination thereof)
others come to look for a shortcut (like how to print stolen artwork cheaply), or to advertise their products/services for free

unfortunately the ratio of the former to the latter is not as wide as you might imagine, hence Tabob's assertion
(and he still did help anyway, in case he was wrong in that assertion, or for the future?)

even now, if you were to post a new thread asking for help about xyz, you would receive help

you have to remember that most of these cats on here are pros and they freely share their time and knowledge
it's like university, but free (although the profs can be sassy)

brush this one off, and come back anytime for questions or share what you have learned

It is up to the moderators to flag posts a spam, not us.
If we don't like a post then use the 'Report Bad Post' button at the bottom left of each post, and let the moderator make his decision.


The question was a perfectly legitimate extension to the original thread precisely because DST transfers are printed onto a plastisol like base and very evidently look like they have come from an inkjet printer (although they are actually from a laser printer).


There is not a lot of information about DST on the forum, largely because it is a little known process pioneered by a smaller Danish company. It is fair to assume that, without knowing the process used, this thread was the closest in scope to the mn15's question.


Criticism of mn15 is not valid in any way and has got out of proportion.
I suspect this is largely because many members of the forum are unfamilier with DST and would'nt recognise a DST transfer if it bit them.

Therefore they don't comprehend the validity of mn15's question and are wrongly suggesting it is irrelevant to the thread.


mn15, you are not responsible for members lack of knowledge of a specific process.

Did we get all that out of the way? Good! Now we can get back to discussing sublimating onto dark cotton garments.
