Need Help! Color Accuracy, AnaRip Setting for Mp10i

I recently purchased MP10i and I wanted to see if I can get some help getting the colors right. I had Summit DTG and I recently purchased MP10i to keep up with the volume. It’s been three days since I installed MP10i but I am having difficulty adjusting colors…

Issue:
Mint Green, Hot Pink is the most problematic. Whenever I print solid mint green, I get grayish blue or light blue on dark garments even with few other different settings. I did not have color accuracy issue with Summit and my UV printer so this is new thing to me and I am guessing I do not have the correct setting.

Setting:
Best Setting I think was: Color: Fine/ Wide, White: Fine/ Narrow, Content Base White Underbase, No other adjustment. But still grayish blue

I did try a lot of other settings such as adjusting color contrast, unchecking content base, saturation, brightness, etc…. Used Up my entire first set of white ink in 1 days just trying to print small boxes of green on black shirts….

File:
All my image files are in Tiff with Transparent Background made from ai/ Photoshop. I wish I had some sample color to post but I thought this is normal for MP10i… (Spoke to one of tech at Anajet, who told me that it’s because it’s different rip…… which I did not really understand since I have no problem with Summit DTG or UV Printer printing same image.

If there is any good settings

Hi there,

Here is some download files for color charts.

Print these on white shirts as well as dark shirts.

Once you see how the color looks after it is printed, you can go back and use an eyedropper tool to color match when you create your graphics.

Are you saying that I should create different image file just for Anajet? Without white ink, the color is accurate.

Is there any setting that I can try so that I don't have to have two seperate files for my Summit DTG and MPower10?
It will be very confusing after all

ICC profiling is going to be different between two printers, two RIPs, and two ink brands. it's just how it is.

Part of having a DTG printer is finding the best color profile for you. Having TWO DTG printers from two different companies means you're going to have to tweak to get them similar.

AnaJet uses the sRGB Spectrum. But certain colors like Hot Pinks and Bright Cyans are hard to achieve.

If the color is accurate without the white ink, then it should be similar if you print your images close to non content base settings.
