hi I bought a Ricoh sg3110 and I intend to use it to heat press garments only (tshirts); As sublimation ink only work in polyester (more expensive) and in light color tess and I am willing to use cotton (cheaper) and also in dark color tees too,which ink should I use Dye based ink or Dye pigment ink? can I find these inks for Ricohs? so far have only seen them for epson. by the way I have refillable ink cartridges. many thanks

You do realise you can't print directly to dark tees and would need some kind of transfer paper?

Pigment ink is best and youd need a transfer paper with a white backing for dark garments , Xpres and YOLO do decent ones.

Im afraid youre pretty much stuck with OEM inks all the othr i tried are Epson inks rebadges, and Epson inks are thinner so wont work as well.

I will be printing onto yolo ss transfer paper using the OEM ink, do I need to do any color adjustment or change any color settings before printing? I am using photoshop elements; dont want to wast much paper trying ha ha ha

Nope we don't change a thing. Just use "Printer managers colour" and for us works a treat.
