    These t-shirts have just come out of the washing machine for the umpteenth time. They were printed on the All American stand at FESPA, Munich, June 2010 - I know, I was working on that stand


    They were printed on the original NeoFlex, with DuPont Artistri inks and DuPont pre-treatment.

    9 years on, they're still vibrant and showing no degradation in the print.

    I'm afraid they're a little crinkly at present as I've just hung them out to dry.

    No, they weren't heard of 9 years ago :)

    My NeoFlex is still going strong 9 years on.

    Which DTG printer do you use Logobear and which inks/pretreatment?

    That is the only thing keeping me out of the DTG market, at the moment. There have been some poly pre-treats on the market, with variable results. The Kornit Poly pro apparently works well, but for half a million quid it should do.

    I have most faith in Epson in getting a viable poly dtg machine to the market - when they set their mind to it. They usually get things right eventually.

    DTG printing is NOT for the feint hearted! Especially those that use white ink!

    The printers require so much attention.

    I have a love hate relationship with mine!
