We use that stuff and got no problem till now. Check all the possible materials, as some works may need different options.

We had some problems with glitter but maybe due to pressure, we're still learning new tricks, mixing materials, checking new possibilities...

You could use your tatto designs also with flock and extraflex. You could get nice tshirts, specially with tribals. However you must vectorize the draw to cut it.

We use that kind of stuff. Check the Premium Flock.

To cut in plotter it must be a vector draw. No lines, just full letter.
You should save the files as cdr for your future use, but for cutting it depends on the program you use to control the cutter, normally used .ai or .eps.


the tattoorelated designs are vector stuff?

Save only the original files in .cdr in your case. Delete all the eps and if you need it again just export it from the original. You could delete the eps after 30 days or something. Actually there's few difference in mac/pc prices. And mac is 1000 times better. I'm still using some 10 years old macs...

You should calculate a standard 200% coverage to be in the safe part. And for a very large order you could calculate exactly the % of that image. Very dark images will get 280% or so. The InkCoverage plugin for photoshop is available in the Adobe Studio Exchange. Mac and PC versions. http://share.st...

What is 100% coverage? Ink coverage? Normally a photo has a ink coverage of 150-190 easy. If its very dark it can get 250 or more. You get lower coverage if you use text or photos with lots of white spaces. I use a photoshop filter (Ink Coverage). It says the % of inf coverage of an image. The distr...

We are also checking the sublimation stuff. The epson 3000 is the standard, but that model it's going to be discontinued. The epson 1520 got a Tri-colour cartridge and probably discontinued soon too. I think a good option is an epson 2100. Or just buy one of the last units of 3000. You'll get good p...

We have no problems cutting it.
Always less than 1 meter long by now, maybe with larger size...

Use less speed when cutting.
