Much is left unsaid about this conversion of an Epson C88 printer into a do it yourself, direct to garment T-Shirt printing machine (for example, what the heck sort of inks or dyes are being used here?) and although it’s unlikely to be much of a production solution, even on light colored shirts…. isn’t it just damned interesting?
The creator says it’s a $150 project, and that plans will be sold in the future as the diyTs T-Shirt Printer. You can see that there’s a custom built carriage, but you can’t tell much else about it. And why is the image being printed sideways? If it were printing the image vertically there’d be no real limit to the height of the design. Apart from the length of the shirt, of course.
Thanks for the heads-up go to to Jean Roth.
Update: there’s a thread about this, started by the creator, at Rodney Blackwell’s T-Shirt Forums.[tags]t shirts, direct to garment, inkjet, diy, do it yourself, epson printer, t shirt printing, print on demand[/tags]
