Cleaning my printer

Inkjet printers used for apparel printing require a higher level of maintenance than those used for document printing. The greater rate of ink flow, lint from garments, ink pigments and low humidity all contribute to accumulation of foreign elements in the Maintenance station, Wiper Blade, and Print Head areas. If not cleaned regularly, these residues will allow air to come in contact with these areas, and interfere with ink flow, resulting in lower quality prints and shorter life of the Print Head. If desired wear powder-free latex or rubber gloves during cleaning.
