Brother GT3 B-Series Inks for DTG printing

Image Armor B-Series Inks Now Available in Canada Through DTGInkCanada.com

The Image Armor B-Series inks, which are a third party ink solution for the Brother GT3 DTG printer, are now available in Canada through DTGInksCanada.com based out of Manitoba. These inks feature the same cure time and color characteristics of the original OEM inks.

The B-Series inks are a drop in bag replacement and not an entire cartridge. The original OEM cartridges are used, opened and the original OEM bag removed. The new 380cc B-Series bags are inserted into the cart, the cartridge is then closed up and used in the printer like normal.

It is highly recommended to not mix the OEM and Image Armor B-Series Inks and the white inks should be replaced when the weekly flushing routine is finished and white ink is ready to be reloaded into the printer. The CMYK can be loaded behind the OEM and filled with an Initial Cleaning. See our PDF on converting the  B-SERIES Inks Conversion Document – PDF Version.

New B-Series DTG Inks and 100% Black Polyester Printing

100-percent-black-polyester-with-gt3-b-series-inksWe thought this would be a fun little print to show that you can print 100% black polyester fabrics with the Image Armor Series of DTG inks. This design was printed on a Brother GT3 with the soon to be released B-Series inks. We pretreated the polyester fabric with Image Armor Ultra and heat set under the heat press. We didn’t press it, but just hover cured. Then, we maxed out the white ink settings in the Brother, and printed….. Came out looking great.

As you can see in the picture, the image was printed on a Sport-Tek ST340. Image Armor is opening up a world of new possibilities for EVERY major DTG printer on the market.

We will try to post a video of the process soon to show, yes, you can print polyesters with the IA ink sets.

Improve the DTG Prints From Your Brother GT3 Garment Printer



The Brother GT3 Garment Printer does a great job printing shirts. We wanted to show you how you can dramatically improve the quality output of your DTG printer simply by pretreating. The application and use of Image Armor LIGHT Shirt Pretreatment Formula will greatly enhance the prints off your Brother printer. This isn’t just applicable to the newer GT3 series of printers, but also to Closeup-of-Brother-GT3-Ink-Pretreatment---no-pretreatment-on-100-cotton-shirtthe older GT541 and GT782 series. By using the LIGHT Shirt Formula with the older series, Image Armor LIGHT will help make your new or old printer look like it just started taking steroids with the increased color, vibrancy and detail you see as soon as you start printing.


Clicking on the image at the left will bring up a higher-res image. This shirt was pretreated on the left hand side of the shirt while the right side of the shirt was left untreated. We applied the Image Armor LIGHT Shirt Formula at about 20 grams of pretreatment for a 14″x14″ area (35.5cm x 35.5cm). The pretreatment was heat set with two 20 second presses at 330F with high pressure using a silicone parchment paper and letting the steam out in between heat presses. The image was then printed and cured as normal on the Brother garment printer.

You can easily see the yellows are significantly more yellow and not “muddied”. The Image Armor LIGHT Shirt Formula helps hold the details and brings out the true colors and detail that just a plain 100% cotton shirt can not show.

Closeup-Full-Size-Image-of-Brother-GT3-Inks-and-Pretreatment-no-pretreatmentIf you really want to take your DTG prints to the next level, give the LIGHT Shirt Formula a try. It will help EVERY DTG printer on the market printing CMYK ink improve the quality, detail, and color fastness of the images. This will make your printer look even better than it ever could by itself.

We know that this will improve your DTG prints significantly which is why you can try it out for free. If you have not tried Image Armor LIGHT yet, you can fill out our on-line form for a free quart sample (Continental United States only) that is ready -to-use.
