I think the reason is a lot of people just do not know. They just know that a color in brand X works for the way they print.

Although I do not use it (because of supplier) I do know that Wilfex puts a lot of information out there in the way of Webinars and such. Maybe Johnny can get them to become involved in a good discussion on the subject.

Anyway. Great point and lets see what we can find out.

Hey everyone!  Happy to join the community here.  A bit of a newbie, but have had much graphic design experience.  Wondering if anyone knows if the BlackMax ink for the 1430 Epson printer works without having to purchase the AccuRip software from Ryonet.  It's crazy expensive, but I know the BlackMax ink works like a charm.  Don't need the Rip software as I'm familiar with Adobe already.  If I can avoid the BlackMax due to the price, what ink is available for good opacity that won't break the bank?  Does the screen printing industry have a preferred manufacturer?  Any feedback or direction would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
