I need your help.
I have been busy over the last few days getting my Epson P600 and Epson 4880 converted to print with DTF inks.
The questions I have are:
1. once the print comes out of the printer, does it need to have the powder applied right away, and cured? (or could I leave the printer printing the sheets overnight and come put the power on the next day or after a weekend)
2. can the sheets on a multi print, say 50 sheets, be stacked on the printer output tray? or will the ink still be wet and cause the next sheet to stick to each other and cause the prints to be damaged?
3. what's the best option for melting the powder? (I have read, oven, heat gun, heat press... what works best for you.) just starting out, so looking to keep the cost down?
4. storage - how long can the prints be stored? (humidity will this affect the film before print and after?
Is there anything that I have missed that I should know, or any big problems that may come up?
I have been printing with DTG for about 7 years and have a good understanding of the processes involved with dtg, BUT DTF is band new to me.
Thanks in advance.
