sorry if this is not very technical, but I don't know who else to ask, I have a great new printer and I want to print on a T-Shirt, I have the right paper, a sample was free with the new printer, can I use the ordinary ink in the printer or do I have to load special ink,
It's the special paper that you need, rather than special ink. It makes an iron-on transfer, which you then stick onto your T shirt. The colours will be fine, but I find that the transfer medium is a little thick and stiff, and begins to break up and peel off after a while. There are lots of different transfer papers available--worth trying a few, I would think, if you want something particularly good.
