[CLOTHING LINE] Giving to non-profits

I have a clothing line that Im starting up in the memory of my late brother who took his own life two years ago. Has anyone given proceeds to a non-profit? If so, how do I do that? The non-profit I want to give to is save.org, a website dedicated to suicide prevention and education. I just want to know if there is a specific process to it?

[Fast T-Jet 2] I have 2 t jet 2 but print quality is not the same

I have 2 t jet 2's. The print quality is noticeably different between the two. I usually have 2 computers hooked up to print on them separately.
I've used the same computer with the same design and settings to print on both t jets and I can not determine the cause of the poor quality of the one printer. It is the same no matter which computer I print from but using the exact same print from the same computer should eliminate any software/setting discrepancies.
I have perfect nozzle checks on both printers, but the poor quality printer does not print the under base or whites nearly as well as the 2nd printer and I mean noticeably.
My guess is that it's not the software since I've run the exact same prints from the same computer on both machines.
Any thoughts or suggestions on what might be

[CorelDraw] - Help with simple line drawing to plotter

Hey...I am having problems. I have created what for most people would be quite a simple line drawing in Corel draw (I am only quite new at using this) I then import my file to my plotter (flexi starter) ....The problem I am having is that I think I may have messed up a setting in either Corel or Flexi as each time I open the file in there the lines are too thin. I weld my drawing together in corel and the lines are 1.2mm thick. what I am trying to do is cut around the outsides of the lines rather than just the middle. I have tried unchecking the box that says import as wireframe and also checking it...but cannot make it work.....a couple of weeks ago I somehow did it but seems since then I have stuffed something or am not grouping or welding correctly? Please help....I know I am only a new

Why some inks come out glossy and some matte?

Why is it that some of my prints come out glossy and others with a dull finish. Do ink manufacturers sell inks in different finishes? My blacks and blues are all glossy, but my green and orange are matte.
I've also heard that curing temps may have something to do with it.

Gradient Printing with Inkjet for Heat Transfers

I am having an issue with printing a graphic that has gradient fills using my Epson 1400 with Magic Flow CIS. It will print solids fine but a gradient will turn pink or have lines in it. I can not figure out if its something with the graphic if I have to print this through a RIP software. I have posted the graphic I am trying to print.

Best ink line?

I use International Coatings for ALL of my plastisols and Mitsui for ALL of my water-based inks. When I read about contest winners, etc. they seem to use either Rutland or Westix inks. I am not happy with ICs white inks but the other colors, including their Pantone kit, seems to work well.
Do screen printers mix and match their inks? Like printing a design using a combination of Rutland AND Westix inks to get a better image?
Should I scrap my IC inks and go with Rutland, Westix, or someone else?

trace in inkscape vs. illustrator

So my trial for adobe is about to run out!!! So I have been playing around with inkscape and gimp a little bit. I just noticed that for some reason the tracing feature in inkscape does a much better job tracing complex artwork. I'm not sure why this is, but believe me, I have played with many illustrator settings for their live trace. Inkscape by far blows them away with complex art. However, gimp leaves much to be desired and doesn't seem to be as easy or as well adept to do many of the things I would normally do in Photoshop. So basically I would like to put an inkscape vector image into Photoshop but I can't edit copy like I could with illustrator. So I essentially have to place an image into Photoshop that isn't a scalable vector, which would be fine if I had an invisible background, b

Need help with Laser transfer paper for dark shirts

I have a OKI C711WT printer and am using the Forever Laser-Dark (No-Cut) laser transfer paper. This is a 2 step paper with an A paper and B paper.
First step being to press the two papers together to get the opaque layer onto the toner on the A paper.
This is the step I have issues with. I do everything per instructions. (375 f, medium- high pressure, 60 seconds and peel after 5-10 seconds)
The issues that I have is that sometimes the yellow comes up in specks when I peel apart and there is always a small piece at the very end of the graphic that peels up.
Does anyone have any experience working with this paper or having these issues that can assist me? I can not stress enough how many different times and variations I have attempted with this and occasionally will get a usable trans

Mimaki Reset a Switch?

I don't have the
mimaki printer but instead have the Mimaki 3042HG. I was hoping someone here could help anyway.
Just had a new one installed two weeks ago. Have basically been reading the manual and trying buttons it doesn't describe.
Pushed the rest switch. It is now locked up and the screen reads Reset a Switch. When I tried it before, turning the reset button to the right popped it up and the screen changed but now that doesn't work.
I turned the power off, left it off several minutes, turned it back on and still locked on that message.
tried the power button in back with same results.
tried cancelling all documents from raster 5 with no success.
closed raster5 and rebooted the program. nothing.
tried printing another job to see if that would clear it but nada.
