Hey,

Had a question that maybe someone else has ran into. I printed a design with text on a EZ-Jet Transfer paper using a Epson Stylus C88 and the colors look great. After I pressed the transfer onto a 100% white cotton t-shirt the colors changed?? The text color that came out on the t-shirt was a greenish color, the color that was suppose to show was a shaded black going to white. Also any areas that had the black shading came out green. I used a heat press at 375 deg. for 14 seconds. I did try a few other colors with shading and the same result. Any Ideas? Am I pressing the t-shirt to long or could it be the transfer paper?

Thanks

The problem is the inks if your using the Epson OEM DuraBrite inks that came with the printer. The colors gray, brown and some blacks are the worse for color shifting to a greenish color when heat pressed. Put the settings below in your printer and it should stop the color shift.
-15 Yellow
+5 Magenta
+5 Cyan

Have a BLESSED evening.
God Bless You
