Question and answer

Q:Does this machine can only print on T-shirt?
A:It can print on all kinds of textile at 100% cotton, 50% cotton and polyester.And it could print on paper and card board, carton, ID lace.
Q:Could it print on other rigid materials, like wood, acrylic, promotional items?
A:A2 T-shirt printer can fill in two kinds of inks:
1)Water based ink: it's used to print T-shirt, textile, paper and card board.ect
2)Eco solvent ink: it's used to print rigid materials, such as wood, acrylic, plastic, ABS, glass, metal.ect So, if you want to print on rigid materials, you could fill in eco solvent ink. As we can only fill in one kind of inks in the machine at one time, so it can not print both materials at one time.
Q:What are the colors of T-shirt can be printed?
A: Our T-shirt printer can print all kinds of colors t-shirt.When you print on white/light color T-shirt, we could print directly on the T-shirt.When you print on dark color T-shirt, we must print a white ink layer firstly, then print colorful picture on the white layer.
