I am also looking into this printer. I was sold on the Epson 1400 and now I see the workforce 1100 with durabrite ink. I would love to hear some pros and cons of each before I purchase. Thanks for the help.
Cutting the inks down from 6 to 4 will save money and time especially if you get refillables. Just the machine I was hoping Epson would produce. A fast wide format that does not use six photo inks but only four pigment inks. Should be a great machine.
Inkjetcarts.us has said that the 1100 is their new wideformat pick and are working on a refillable system for it. They are by far the cheapest providers of refillables I've seen on the web. (Just thought I'd mention that.)
Wish I could help but a lot depends on what you print. I print a lot of pictures and graphics so I will not get as many prints as I would if I printed text documents. Hopefully someone else can answer your question.
If you just plan on putting pictures on the shirt you can get by with using a scissors and peeling the picture off the backing to be pressed onto the shirt. You do not have to mirror print. If you are going to put graphocs on then you really need an optic eye cutter. I have a Roland GX24 but it is expensive. Hopefully someone else who has a cheaper eye optic cutter will jump in with a recommendtaion. Hope thi helps.
