Like many DTG printers, fabric type is key to a successful print. The OvalJet DTG printer performs best on textiles with natural fabric and blends with a higher percentage of natural fabric to synthetic fabrics.
Natural textiles work best because of it’s ability to absorb the water-based ink of a DTG printer. Synthetic fabrics are composed of plastics, which repel the water-based ink.
Common natural fibers include cotton, combed cotton, and organic cotton. Common synthetic fibers include polyester and nylon. Common natural and synthetic fabric blends include a cotton, polyester, rayon triblend and a cotton/polyester biblend.
