This statement is a little vague and confusing. Can you elaborate? Are you asking if the problems encountered with white ink on a DTG printer are because of the machine or because people don't know how to operate it?
My opinion is that it's a user issue having to do with the PROPER pretreatment application, and proper drying.
Thanks this kind of response is actually what i was lookingn for. I'd give a thanks FDSales but I can't find the thank you hyperlink .My opinion is that it's a user issue having to do with the PROPER pretreatment application, and proper drying.
It's also an issue with the ink itself. White ink is thicker, and most machine mfgs are pushing this thicker ink thru print heads that were not designed to utilize this type of ink. Therefore, maintenance issues increase as a result of white ink clogging print heads, so most assume it's a machine issue, but really, it's not the print head's fault, but the manufacturers building & selling systems (machine, pretreatment, software) that are not quite perfected YET. Remember, the machine is only as good as the company building it. This is an industry that is still evolving and growing and learning about itself.
How long does it take your Blazer to print a full size image on dark shirts. I've heard that it's somewhat slow on the Blazer, almost 8 minutes? This this correct? Also, have you calculated your ink costs on black shirts?I have a t-jet blazer pro and print a lot of black shirts.
