+Start Screen Printing Now what are your settings? Gloss, matte? Premium. Any tips for super dark positives would be appreciated. I assume you have been experimenting.

Rezy Ramos says:

Hi Casey, just wondering if you leave your printer on all the time?


Another plus to this printer, when the ink runs out in a certain color, you can still print. This printer will lay down more ink from other ink cartridges to make up for the color that is out. With my old Epson, if any of the cartridges went empty, printing would come to a halt until the empty cartridge was replaced.

EZ TEEZ says:

Nkosi K. Akinlabi says:

Isaak Castro says:

I had a question about how you created that design. What software or app did you use to create it? I have been looking for months on the best software’s to design and create my own logo. Thanks for the help if you do have a chance to respond!

Nathan Deganis Librera says:

Coffins tee!!! I rock all the time! Great vid

John Malloy says:

Thanks for the video. I bought a used Epson and of course the ink is empty. I may just buy a new Canon and start off fresh. Thanks for the detailed info. Your film looks great!

Point 4 Designs says:

Question, in looking at refill “inks” I noticed some are “dye based” and some are “pigment based”?
Which is better for screen printing?

jacklagreg says:

Do you know of any RIP software, that can be used with this printer?

Shaun Brown says:

Hey hows the Pixma still holdin up after running a lot more films???

John Malloy says:

Thanks again! I went ahead and bought this printer and it’s awesome like you said. Really opaque blacks on the first try. Anyone want to by a used Epson off me? haha. BTW, Best Buy did the price match so it was $128 with tax out the door.

EZ TEEZ says:

You saved me a lot of money with this video! thank you so much!!!

Daniel Kapla says:

even if you wanted to produce HUGE prints. Like poster sized prints. You can simply block your design out into multiple 13×19 images in photoshop. Print them out on this printer and use clear scotch tape to bring them together for exposure. It’s more work but it’s actually kind of fun. It’s great for producing bigger prints.

Luis De la Torre says:

Nice video, your awesome! Did you use a special black ink instead of the CMYK ink?

Juan medina says:

Has any one that bought this printer had issues with it printing borderless or expanding the image beyond the paper

ExposedRoot says:

Sold my professional shop off 6 years ago. Dcided to get back in with a tabletop unit. Pulled out mt old Epson r1800 which is clogged and just spent $18 trying to flush it. NOt sure if it’s completely flushed because now It’s telling me I need ink of course. NOt to mention I would have to $150 of new in in it anyway if it works. Just saw your video. Dude you just sold this not a newbie a printer!! Won’t work with my old Accurip but that’s fine for now. Just want to get me feet wet!!!! Thanks!!! Used your link so hope you get a few bucks!

Ricardo Carrera says:

what about the Epson L1300?, do you use the complete color range of ink or if possible change all cartridges to black ink?

Jammyn says:

11% of the reviewers gave this printer a single star. I will pass on this one.

sik304s says:

Now that you have been using this printer for awhile, how is it holding up? Any settings or tricks that you have learned to get the darkest possible prints?

888Xristos says:

I want Casey to help me with my dark, black artwork

Jose Avina says:

Great stuff.

Nkosi K. Akinlabi says:

Thanks for the heads up. I was actually pricing the epsons and I’m glad I ran into your video. Great advice. You saved the day (and my money). I also modeled my washout booth based on your video. Thanks again.

r8gue says:

The epson 1430 is trash, the ink always splatter everywhere on the print and sometimes it mixes the yellow and black smh

Marissa Chang Flores says:

Thank you, Casey! This is helpful! You rock!

Leo Stewart says:

Hey I went out and bought this printer and i must say its been one of the best buys for my garage printing. I need to step up my exposure unit game now.

EZ TEEZ says:

do i have to print straight from photoshop or illustrator or can i save as a pdf and print? i am not getting really opaque prints even though i am using the same settings as you showed

Nkosi K. Akinlabi says:

Im using this printer with Adobe Illustrator CC and I’m not getting the darkness you get using photoshop. When I do my print settings I’m not able to make any adjustments from the printer but have to use the settings from adobe. I’ve been on the phone with them but they insist it’s my printer and not the Illustrator software. For now I have to put two transparencies together to get the darkness I need for my screens. Any suggestions. My fill in is done using cmyk @100%
