Marc, thanks for posting this, in fact it's the exact way we've been pretreating for the last 6 months (started doing it over the winter because it was too cold to do pretreatment outside) I've been hesitant to bring it up or mention how well it has worked for fear of having to defend the process, we have no print quality issues due to too much or too little pretreatment.I am getting the best prints of my life on a refurbed four year old $5000 printer. I no longer have a pretreatment machine, I do it all by hand with a $0.99 plastic spray bottle from the dollar store. Yes there are better machines than others, and it is important to pick the right one, but if you do enough research and talk to end users, you can figure out pretty quickly what to buy.
Agree 100% and I don't think it could have been said any better.I have seen alot of posts talking about how bad these Epson based printers suck, they are "toys", bota anchors, blah, blah, blah. I am here to tell you that it is simply untrue, and you can make considerable amounts of money with them, IF you take the time to learn them, understand their weaknesses (no process is perfect for everything) and have a decent marketing plan. Don't let those that have failed dissuade you. Look at those of us that have made a succesful venture out of this great technology.
Thank you again.
