You will never duplicate glossy paper and transfer paper. However Everlast for darks is the paper I recommend. It stretches and does not crack. Colors hold up in wash. LouI,m trying to get top photographic quality on T shirts. I'm also trying to do this on dark shirts. Is there a transfer paper that will come close to what I can get on a photo quality inkjet printer printing on glossy photo paper?
Ultrachrome is just an advanced durabrite ink. They made the change for the photo industry not for the transfer industry. You actually see little difference in the 2 with appareal. Ultrachrome is mostly used with 6- 8 color printers. What you need to think is pigment inks. it can be called lou's pigment as long ads it is pigment ink. LouSo Kenny, are you saying that the UltraChrome carts (which I have 2 full sets and nothing to do with them will work supposedly like the Durobrite inks because they are both Pigment based? Is there anybody else out there making t-shirt transfers with Ultrachrome? Does it hold up under the heat and transfer process. If this is true it might be worth looking into having a second 4880 to to all my regular prints and transfer prints.
The Ergosoft Studio Print Rip lets you asign any color to any ink cartridge position. So I think you can set it up to do what you want. You can also set any ink position as none, so that ink will not print.Ok, last question. If I run my sublijet on one side of the 4880 and the CMYK Epson UltraChrome on the the other side, is there a rip that will print colors acurately. I was really interested in MultiRip but I guess that program will not output the color correctly like it would with MultiInk. I asked Mark from MultiInk if I could run the original carts one side and sub on the other and I am pretty sure he said they did not have the program setup for the 4880 yet.
