It is really easy to use an Epson to make your own Iron on T-shirts that can actually take washing. 500 people made free T-shirts, 400 made a mouse pad! Jon, what transfer paper (or papers) did you feel perform the best? Which printers were you using and with what inks. Jamie Gannon PMFJI For over two years I have been making beautiful T-shirts with the Photo Ex, a variety of papers, and a heat press. I was actually about to do a mass mailing to certain shop in the US and Canada. Now all of a sudden the ink has begun to run in the wash! This could have been a total nightmare! Epson relations is supposedly working on the problem , but so far all they have done is suggest different things I may be doing wrong, one being that I was using a heat press! I have even had to use their paper, which does not give as good image quality as the Copy Trans. It also sticks a little as you peel it away, similar to the Transfer City paper. If you have borders on the image that can often cause them to warp. The only time over the last several years I had trouble with the ink running was when I used an off brand ink. As soon as I switched back to Epson the problem went away. As long as I used 50/50 cotton poly the images resist fading better than most screen printed products you buy. If you don't wash inside out in cold water they will fade faster. 100 % cotton has no fade resistance at all. Hope this helps some. Conde has a line of T-shirt products and stay pretty abreast of developments. Ed Mistarka nobeta.com - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
