Screenprinting Tee Shirts: Do I Need RIP Software & All Black Ink Systems?

This is a video I made because I am getting this question a lot. This is one of those things that gets convoluted by marketing and advertising ploys from the biggest companies in the market. I thought it was time to rundown the basics as I know them and clear up some of the myths and misnomers about RIP software and all black ink systems. Here I discuss what RIP actually does and why it alone does not make your film positives darker or denser. I also touch on all black ink systems and dye based inks compared to the standard pigment inks you get in the Epson printers from the factory. This video is designed to clear up the advertisements and sales pushes to sell RIP packages to start up or beginner screen printers. Not all RIP software is the same and they all do different things but this information is general and true for most scenarios. There are always exceptions to the rule. But if you’re in the market for an inkjet printer, RIP software and an all-black ink system you may want to watch this video first. Enjoy and thanks for watching!
