Old thread but has anyone ever tried to just mod the printer to accept thick flat fabric as media? I would like to print posters on a beasty like this but have no idea if it can straight feed thick media like heavy pellon?i don't know if you are still interested in using it, but i did it.
I used 2 1520's.
Here you see the converted printer, printing on paper:

I never used DTGink, though.
If I can help you with more information, let me know.
