Hi all,
I've been reading up for a long while now and finally decided it was time to buy an M2 printer.
Coming from a signwriting background I have a bit of knowledge but have quickly discovered this is nothing like solvent printing.
I'm having a bit of an issue with Black shirts loosing vibrancy and looking dull and dark. I have attached a copy of the artwork and the print for reference.
settings are
92 underbase
all others 100
White is 4 pass dot type medium
colour is 4 pass dot type medium
Profile is All media black garment.

Any advice from some seasoned experts is very much welcome
