I recently purchased some equipment that included an Epson 4800 printer with the FastRip software included.. Im currently using a heat press to press Plastisol transfers & regular heat transfers.. What advantage would this printer be to me when i began to get into
Screen printing with a 4 to 6 color shop, Verses me getting a smaller Epson printer with Blackmaxxx or somthing.. Thanks for any advice you guys can give.

1. Larger printable area (17" wide) compared to 13" wide area... so you don't have to piece multiple sheets of film.

2. Easier to use rolls of film with the built-in roll feed.

3. Use larger cartridges (110 ML or 220 ML) instead of either smaller cartridges (15 ML) or a bulk feed system.

4. You don't have spend additional money for a printer & RIP.

Hope this helps.

Sorry, FastRIP is like MultiRIP Film... which does only film positive. You are going to need the ICC profiles for the different dye sub substrates. MultiRIP Hybrid, which is a different product than MultiRIP Film, comes with these profiles built in it.

Hope this helps.
