Most users of T-Seps or FastFilms have a RIP (raster image processor) that tells a “dumb” inkjet printer how to create halftone dots and to lay down more black ink for denser images. A RIP also let’s most inkjet printers print black ink from all the ink color slots.
Even thought T-Seps has a built in “RIP” – this routine simply upsamples the file to 1400 dpi and converts the file to halftone dots and let’s you print to any printer. Most inkjet printers will print fairly dark images if you use the highest photo quality setting. A true RIP (like our T-RIP) also controls ink deposit and allows you to nest images (multiple images on one page) and print multiple blacks and more. The RIP in T-Seps might be considerd a “poor man’s RIP” and it works fine as long as your inkjet printer prints a dense black image.
But, you often need a RIP when working with Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. That is where it is prudent to get a RIP that works with all programs like our T-RIP. T-RIP is based on Scott Fresener’s FastRIP that was the standard of the industry. Scott Fresener was the first to bring an affordable industry specific RIP to garment screen printers back in 2001!
We offer a free trial of T-RIP. It works with almost all Epson model printers and frankly the final film output is a thing of beauty! Learn more HERE.
