  • Epson SC-F500 Dye Sublimation Prints, advice please?

    Hi all.
    Hope everyone is keeping safe and well.

    I bought a new toy for my missus to produce custom sublimated products. Bottles, Mouse Mats, T-shirts etc.

    An issue we have regarding T-shirt printing. It is very hard to find 100% polyester T-shirt at a decent price.
    I can buy 100% cotton from my local stores cheap as chips. But… The print quality gets a very faded and washed-out look.
    Is there anything I can use to allow printing onto a cotton T-shirt that won’t fade after a few washes or am I taking out my a$$?

    Thanks in advance everyone 👍

    Hi Wayne

    I am no expert but i do offer various sublimation products.
    I tend to think it is a combination of quality t-shirts and the ink type that dictates the life of the garment prints.
    i am sure others here will have more knowledge than me but I use various garment sources like xpres, fruit of the loom with Sawgrass ink.

      Thanks for your advice Karen. I’ve just come across a product called Subli Flex No Cut. I’m gona order some samples and give it a blast. Still at the learning stages of adjust times and temps to get the correct print result 🙂
