Hello all-

I have more problems then I have solutions. I need help once again.

I have this logo: Elite-Sports-Academy-Logo-011-e1327534284411-1 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

I printed it out on a WF1100 using Illy and Cobra ink. Pressed for 60 sec 400 degrees.

Came out like this: IMG_7862 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

I think I have figured out why its pressing green. I did a change from CMYK to RGB.

Now I am wondering if the gray gradients will press green yet. I do not know how to check on the color specs of gradients. So I'm not sure if it's RGB or CMYK.

However I did print it out and the blacks are black but the grays are purplish on the paper I have not pressed it yet. I will try tonight when I get to the shop.

Any ideas ??

Other question.... I printed a sample of this logo on a piece of 100% poly strechy material pretty close to a moisture wicking shirt. Also on a Adidas Dri-fit and it came out kinda light in color not sure if thats the way it supposed to be but you can take a look I have a couple pictures in my flikr album.

If you look at my paper it has what seems to be alot of ink still left on the paper, not sure if this is normal or not. I know whaen I do mugs water bottles and mousepads key chains etc the paper looks used or faded, so I know most of the ink came off however on apperal I'm not sure what is right.

Your thoughs on this is greatly appriciated also.

btw I preheat the shirt 15-20 seconds i put paper on the inside so ink doesnt come through the back then I lay my image that I spraed with elmers craft spray adhesive on then i cover with another sheet of paper then press there are no uneven spots on my press.

not sure if I'm making any sence here but if you need more info just ask.

Double check all your colors and outlines and MAKE sure they are RGB 0 0 0 for the black and double check your greys. WHen I get greens for black its cuz I used CMYK when not paying attention. Make sure you are ungrouped when you do that too. If grouped it won't show the color values properly.

Also what printer/inks are you using ?
