Hello,
Which Epson ink is better for use on printable cotton fabric, specifically the pre-treated fabric sheets commercially available? Durabrite or Ultrachrome?

Two inkjet printers have been recommended to me for use with fabric -

Epson 1100 Workforce
Epson R1900 Wideformat

Any recommendations are appreciated!

Thanks.

both are pigment based inks i believe. so they should be similar. get the 1100 workforce. it only uses 4 inks which will make it cheaper to run as you dont need to buy 8 different inks. for example, if you need to perform a head clean (if you get clogged nozzles) it drains an amount of all ink cartridges. better only 4 than 8. The R1900 will give a better print because it has a better colour range, but I doubt that will matter when printing on fabric.
