Could anyone tell me if the new Epson UltraChrome Pigmented Inks are as good or better than the Magic Mix inks for use on Inkjet Transfers and will either of these inks give our final transfers MORE stronger more vibrant colours than the dull boring colours that our current cannon dye based inks are giving us???

Thanks for your time and help

I use the magic mix, the epson ink was pretty expensive. I bought a bulk unit with the magic mix, and have not had any issuses, it is also very cost effective

I had to use the Epson Dura Brite Ultra to do some transfers, while my Magic mix was stuck at the UPS ware house. The results were great and i'm still
using dura brite till they finish change to Magic Mix after.The only thing is that you have to change the color setting. red +5 , Blue +5 , yellow -15
this setting helps with the heat being transfered to the ink.With regular setting the image may have a color shift yellow could turn gray or green.
Washing is same like Magic Mix, Cindy told me that after i asked her the question. The difference between the two is color shift while heated. With the setting change i think you will do fine with the dura brite and try a test see for yourself it's the only thing to do.

I forgot to mention the ultrachrome are better than Dura Brite and are better
than any dye base for printing transfers.

We just started this whole tshirt transfer bit and purchased an epson c120 with durabrite Ultra ink. The ink has proven to be more expensive than we thought (or we are using more ink..or both!), so we are wondering if we should switch to the Magic Ink. What do you think?:confused:

Also, what is the bulk ink system? Do I need to purchase an additional printer or does it hook to my existing printer?:confused:

I just bought a Epson C120 to use with dyesub inks, and now I'm looking for a refillable cartridges or another system to use.
May you share with us your experience with the system used and the supplier?
Thanks

where do i change these settings. I've been printing on heat transfers, and they look right on the transfer, but when i put onto the shirt i get major color shifts. blues turn to greens, etc.

how do i change the color settings? and will these setting work for every image?

Try looking under the advanced settings when going in under printer preferences. And yes once you save the settings they will be there for every print. Good luck.

I looked everywhere for a system for c 120 , cant find any . It has 2 black cartridges and no system available for it. And sorry for the misleading post ($20) its $20 per ink bottle. they are 100ml each about the equivalent to 8-10 epson cartridges . A 6 color sytem is $240 plus shipping.you get the blank cartridges , easy to install system accessories and includes ink + directions..
