I appreciate all the advice I have gotten just from reading other posts on this site. My question is I am buying a new printer is the Epson 1280 the best printer to buy to do inkjet transfers. I understand that Epson inks are pigment based instead of dye based correct so the colors will not run when the shirt is washed. I also need to know if the ink that comes in the Epson printer when you buy it is okay to use or if the pigment based ink is something you need to buy special. The reason I ask is that I need to do a bunch of shirts asap and need to be able to go to Staples tomorrow and buy the printer I will not have time to place an order for special ink - also is it tricky to use the ink bulk ink systems I have read about. If you have the bulk ink system with 4oz bottles of each color how many transfers does this yield - trying to estimate a cost per shirt for ink - I know it will vary depending on the design I am just trying to get an approximation - thanks for all your help and advise.
