Re: Mixing Firebird with Dupont

I installed firebird ink in my epson r1800 based printer (same DX5 head) over 8 months ago. So far no problems. The white ink is a lot more fluid than dupont. That means you can leave the printer...

Re: What DTG would you recommend?

Still you make some good points. The neoflex is a proven printer with exellent reviews in performance and support. The spectra has a lot less reviews because it's new. I guess it depends whether you...

Re: EZRIP More white

Which pretreatment are you using?

With dupont pretreatment you need underbase before the colors, otherwise your CMYK prints will wash out.

I do not know if it is the same case using Image armor...

Re: What DTG would you recommend?

The Neoflex is probably the best DTG printer out there. Just recently they lowered the price considerably to 12 or 13 k. Support for the Neoflex seems very solid from what you can read in these...

Re: What DTG would you recommend?

The problem with the T-jet 2 and DTG kiosk 2 is that they are based on an Epson 2200 print engine. Sadly, Epson no longer manufactures that print head and parts for that engine. See here:

Re: Spectra DTG printers

Re: Pretreating is a real pain in the a$$........

Pretrating and white ink are the biggest challenges in DTG.
