I recently got back from two days of training on the new Epson F-series dye sub printers. It's amazing how many ways there are to get the color wrong in this process. When it comes to making profiles for a process that transfers color to fabric like T-shirts, you have to get right:
- the settings in the RIP
- the printing to transfer paper
- the procedure of using the heat press to transfer the image onto the fabric.
Don't get me wrong - these new Epson printers are amazing and I've never seen such brilliant images from a dye sub process. The amount of color you can transfer onto a piece of fabric these days is just stunning. It's almost like looking at a fine art print.
This training was in partnership with JVH Technical here in the Northwest. This is a great Epson dealership, well known for outstanding customer service.
