Re: where to have heat transfers made

How can I find out if my epson will use pigmented ink?

You could try doing a search for your printer model here at the forums or you could search for pigmented.

You might also check at personalizedsupplies.com to see if they have a breakdown.

What brand of epson are you using?

what printer do you have? Some newer printers use durabrite ot or durabrite Ultra. there is a symble on your printer. If it does not have that then it is dye ink printer. Lou (ex Epson demo rep)

Looks like from another thread, Marc is using an epson c60
Sorry. That would be me. I don't remember what thread, but thanks for starting this one for me. I checked on pricing when I checked for screen printing and they told me $3 a transfer. I figure it has to be cheaper if my printer will take the ink.

Like I said I have an epson C60. Please help me :)

Like I said did you look on the front of your computer for the durabrite syble. Then you have pigment ink. I don't think yours does. So for 80 bucks go buy a new C88 that does have pigment ink. Your average cost per transfer printing will be about 1.50 ink and paper..

I don't see any symbol. I might just go and get a C88. For that kind of money can't go wrong. It's about time to up grade anyway. I have had this printer for a while and I like epson, never had any problems with mine.
