Curious if any other Ri6000 owners have issues with getting a pure black print from the machine. I have tried different RGB Settings in Ai and Corel but just can't seem to get the print to come out in true black. The print is clear and precise, but you can see the other colors around the edges as it dries to a dark charcoal or gray.

Hi,
I am guessing this is a white t shirt or without white ink. If it is have you tried an RTP apparel shirt to see if this makes any difference. These are already pre treated and it would tell you if the ink is bleeding and soaking into the fibres. If it is bleeding you can also try a light pre-treatment to stop the ink from doing this or anhigher quality t shirt.

Hope this helps, just MHO.

I did alot of testing and came up with better black when I designed the image in RGB, Saved it as a Tiff.

The color spectrum in CMYK is smaller so the design portion, from what i have learned from the techs a Anajet, must be done in RGB because the system conversion from RGB as opposed to CMYK when printing does not give good color match.

My prints were much better and I did not have the color separation around the edges of the black as before since it was printing a much more true black.

Very deceiving image as it show three different types of printing in the actual shirt image. Resolute dtg which is not a Ricoh and has a magic touch logo which is a laser transfer, what are you trying to show with this print.

That's a great print, but it's still on the platten...how does that print on 100 percent poly do after you wash it? What was your treatment for the garment? and I am also confused on the different vendors on a supposedly "Ricoh" printed shirt?

Not saying it's not possible, but I have not had much luck printing a dark poly shirt and having it last...with DTG

100% Polyester on speed mode.
The print is one process, DTG only. The pre-treatment is the key to this print looking so good. Resolute & Magic Touch are U.K. distributors for Ricoh. I was simply answering a question by showing the quality that can be achieved with the correct PT for the substrate.

No transfers were used in this print, it gets cured through a tunnel dryer or it would dull down.

Hope this explains.
