Yes I bought a HP and love the Inks, The colors are fantastic and i also use it for
printing decals. But i was also intrested epson because of the archival factor.
However, i've been disippionted with it. color are not as bright. can't get near the vibrance of the hp .
I also tried the gen inks at STAPLES they looked ok AND i tried the refillable
but that messes with your on screen ink levels .
I'm going to stick with the HP inks . They also look better then my HP Lazer.

Ok,OK,
After reading the forums I figured a lot of you guys know what your talking about so i washed my HP printed shirts about 5 times cold water inside out,low heat,
and low and behold the fade was starting slight bleed also.
Now let me tell you I,m a HP guy but that made me uneasy.
So I warmed up my Epson Cx 3810 and adjusted the output for printing
and the result was great!
However, I did notice some yellowing left behind on the sheet whats that??
The colors were fine on the tee.
The Customer was very pleased.

Hello Doby,
I really love the HP but the reality is, It is a dye ink and it will not last as long a the epson inks but your customer may not care after 30 washes,
But they do look great! I have repeat customers so I have to be aware of the fade Factor and not it was not that bad but i did notice a diff.
as for the Decal thing I bought some decal (water slide and sticker paper) and some Glass ashtray coasters Attached the decal under the ashtray
put the coaster and tee togther plus a printed mug and sold them as a set,
Western,sci fi or hotrod stuff....sold reall well at 30.00 a set
also the decal vinal sticker sells well by themself You have to spray the decal
with a acrylic coat But the tee shirt really sells the set. all aviel on the net
