Things To Know:
CONFIGURATION: (C = Cyan, M = Magenta, W = White, W = White, K = Black, Y = Yellow)
* We recommend the configuration of CMKY + WW. This will allow you to print on both Dark and Light Garments (such as black, white, gray, blue, red, etc.) with 2 channels dedicated to the white ink which is used when printing on Dark Garments. Just remember due to the inherent nature of white ink, requiring more attention/maintenance.
* Room Temperature: It is an important factor operating any DTG Printer in a room with a temperature below 76 degrees. If Humidity is too high, textile inks will begin to clog very quickly.
* T-Shirt Material: For best results, we recommend 100% Cotton or 50/50 Blends. A few brands that you can use are Bella Canvas, Next Level, Gildan Softstyle, or any other of your choice.
* Textile Inks: Alway use textile inks for your DTG Printer and keep them in a safe place. You can use recognized brands like DuPont, Image Armor, and our own that is DuPont base.
* Pretreatment: This is required for Dark Garments so the white ink can set. Light Garments don't require but when you use it you can get more bright and vivid colors.
* Pretreat Sprayer: You can use a simple plastic bottle, Wagner sprayer, or Automatic Pretreat Machine to apply pretreatment more professional for an extra 3k.
* Maintenance: Giving your DTG Printer the proper maintenance with proper cleanings is important. Please use a cleaning solution, cleaning swabs, and cleaning wipes for the best results, and try to never touch the print head.
* Heat Press: A Heat Press is required for curing textile ink after the garment is printed. We recommend a size 15 x 15 or better 16 x 20 to make sure you cover all. For lower budget heat presses you can purchase from Amazon.
* Heat Press Sheets: We recommend using a Teflon sheet, parchment paper, or kraft paper. The Teflon Sheet gives the print a Gloss Finish, Parchment Paper gives the print a Semi-Gloss Finish, and Kraft Paper gives the print a Matte Finish. (NOTE: Please don't use Kraft Paper to press Light pretreated t-shirts, this can give you a yellow box and marks)
What's NOT Included but you need:
* DTG Inks
* DTG Pretreatment for Dark and Light shirts
* DTG Cleaning Solution
* Computer / Laptop with Windows 7 or higher and an available USB port.

* Empty Spray Bottle, Wagner Sprayer, or Machine for the DTG Pretreatment.
* Humidifier to monitor and keep the humidity above 40% in the room.
