What Should You Take Care If You Want Converting a brand-new Epson printer

Category : Blog , Tips & Tricks

 

 

If your Epson inkjet printer is currently using any other ink (Epson-brand ink, compatible ink, another brand of sublimation ink), it is absolutely necessary that you purge all old ink from the printer’s lines prior to installing InkPot Sublimation Ink.

Before starting the conversion process, print a nozzle check to confirm that the printhead is working properly. Do not attempt to perform a conversion on a printer that is not printing correctly.Ensure that you have a spare maintenance tank or a maintenance tank resetter available before moving on. Remove all the old ink cartridges and install a set of cleaning cartridges (or a set of refillable cartridges filled with bottled purge fluid). Do the initial fill procedure to clear the old ink from the lines and replace it with purge fluid. Repeat the initial fill procedure once more to flush all residues. Remove the cleaning cartridges and install the sublimation ink. Perform the initial fill procedure to fill the lines with sublimation ink for printing!

After the conversion of your printer

With your epson sublimation printer now converted to InkPot Sublimation Ink, you can start sublimation printing. For best results, print your images onto a sublimation transfer paper specifically intended for sublimation printing. Transfer the prints using a heat press onto the sublimation blank or polyester fabric.

Although it is possible to obtain decent results without color management, the color gamut will be very limited. To produce professional-grade sublimated materials, color management is required. A custom ICC profile will need to be installed into Photoshop or into your RIP software. With the purchase of a full set of inks, you can benefit from InkPot’s profiling service free of charge.
