hi i am a novice silk screen printer and some of my work can be seen in my blog t-sertkuseries. i am trying to gather information on the use of heatpress machine particularly the best ink to use in my printer: pigment or sublimation, for better quality for my prints that is best suited in our weather condition here in the Philippines (if in case it has an effect on the ink clogging the printer)

please, anybody from the philippines if you happen to read this and know of stores or shops where good quality and affordable heatpress is available other than in gilmore; same with the transfer papers and either pigment or sublimation ink, whichever is best suited for t-shirt

Hi Kabayan, i think everybody in the philippines using china press. If you gonna buy one i'll suggest using the center pressure heatpress some called it english version china press. Sa pigment at sublimation naman kung ang target mo ay 100% cotton you can only used pigment or dye base ink ink ang sublimation kasi ay para lang sa 100%polyster materials. Pero kung gusto mo gumawa ng mug,tiles,pendant or any sublimated product go for sublimation ink. Yung clogging ng printer ay karamihan nangyayri sa mga ciss system lalo na pag pigment ang gamit mo dapat my maintennane karin ginagawa para maiwasan yun. Just Pm me if you need more information.
