Long time reader...first time post. First of all I want to thank all of you for your inspiration and knowledge. I started my business 6 months ago and have had some success. Of course my intention is to be able to grow and become self-employed, as I am sure is everyone else's goal. I started out with a few shirts and was outsourcing to a local screenprinter. However, after researching on this forum, it seems a lot of posters use the heat press method with success and appears to be more cost efficient, especially to newbies such as myself. I have recently purchased a 15 x 15 Hix Press and a C1280 Epson printer. My first question is does the C1280 come standard with pigmented inks or dye inks? Can I use the pigmented inks with the C1280? I hope I didn't jump the gun buying the C1280 without clarifying first. The pigmented inks are the best, right? Thanks.
