    Check Platen Height

    • Depending on the thickness of the garment, height should be adjusted.
      • Normally t shirt is around 1~3 height, Hoodies are around 3~4 Height
    • Properly load the garment and make sure there is no uneven surfaces throughout the platen.
      • We do not recommend using a 14 x 16 platen for hoodies mainly because of the pocket. Pocket will stick out and may not let you to print properly.
        • In case you don't have 10 x 12 platen, you will need to change your printing setting to Uni-directional from Bi-directional.
