Re: DTG M2 - Review - few years of operation

IIRC, FAT runs a bunch of M2s without issue. They're a huge print shop, too. I know at least 2 folks who run M2s without issue.

I love Specialty Graphics. They're local to me but I've never visited them because free shipping on $150 orders.

They've never messed an order up or been late. Fantastic vendor!

Re: Leaving a versacamm unattended

Re: Help printing color on Black or darks! Color always speckles with white showing through!

You definitely need to get a quality paint brush and learn the process to get the fibers down. It's an art, not a science. Even after printing 100,000 shirts DTG, we still will get some buggers...
