Default OEM Epson Inks?

I already do sublimation printing and use vinyl for making tshirts but I was to start using T-shirt transfers so I can offer customers another option until I eventually learn screen printing.

I’m currently looking at two printers. One is an Epson ET-7750 which uses pigment black and dye colour inks and the other is an Epson P600 which uses all pigment inks.

Both printers are similarly priced but the ink costs differ massively with the dye inks being much cheaper.

I’ve read on various places that dye based inks are fine for heat transfers as it’s the paper that’s important, but then I’ve read elsewhere that you really need pigment inks.

What are your opinions? Are pigment inks going to make the prints last longer for our customers?

Dye ink fades. Pigment ink not so much.

I recommend you go all pigment. You can use 3rd party bulk pigment ink in the ET. Cobraink.com is one of many who sell 3rd party inks.
