for like jpss?
Dark shirts, most of them will probably be black.Do you plan to print to dark shirts or only white/light? Do you want to go with laser or inkjet technology? Do you have $500 or $5000?
There have been a lot of threads asking this same basic question. A little search will turn them up, or the same people that answered those threads could start over here
Thank you...i think you need sub ink for mugs but shirts pigment...my epson wf7210 with cobra inks has been doing well so far and is in your budget
im not sure on that as i mostly do vinyl work..i print mainly to keep everything unclogged at this point lol its just nice to have the option...i have yet to refill my xl cartsThank you...
How much ink do you typically go through? Do you know roughly how many shirts can be made with new cartridges?
You might want to backup and research a little more and then consider your options. There is a lot on here to read about all the options and products and processes and their limitations.Dark shirts, most of them will probably be black.
I have checked out the threads here, I just noticed that a lot of them are old and I am not sure what is good for 2018.
However, I am looking at the epson wf1100.
My budget for a printer would be a couple hundred and that fits.
Most importantly I want good ink. So I guess I would want sublimation ink... and I can use that with the wf1100 correct?
Any other recommendations?
My plan was to sell tourist shirts in the summer then do custom jobs for businesses and groups in the off season.What you don't say is ..... are you trying to sell your stuff, or do custom stuff for other people. One offs or 100?
This will also affect what direction you take
I'm definitely holding off for the time being, there is so much to know about this business.You might want to backup and research a little more and then consider your options. There is a lot on here to read about all the options and products and processes and their limitations.
Sublimation is for white polyester garments. Not cotton and not black or dark.
At this point in time, in my opinion, inkjet transfer papers for dark garments leave a lot to be desired. They have a heavy hand feel and tend not to be very durable. This has to do with the necessity of having a white layer under the ink to block out the color of the shirt.
JPSS is a paper for light/white garments. It works well, has low hand, and is durable. You use pigment inks with it. The colors will be true only when used on a white garment. Ash gray is as dark as you can go and reasonably reproduce the colors in a photograph, or the like.
