Have a SP300 and have checked the ink level.  Slots 3 & 4 are blank.  I have used the unit and do not know how long these two are empty.  Will the unit signal a "Replace Ink Cartridge" or do I…Continue

Have a graphic that was emailed to me for some labels.  Not sure what "banding" is but I think I just experienced it.  I am using a Versacamm sp300.  After printing the labels, I noticed that the…Continue

"I use this material all the time. Your temp is too high. It is rated for 325 - I use 330. The mask should stay on until it cools. The material is thin so if the mask is coming off when the press comes up, use a teflon sheet.  Here is a video…"

"I have used the same type of vinyl. -Leave it on for 20 sec, firm pressure, let cool before peeling. I always re-stamp them after that for another 10-12 sec. It won't hurt it. Especially those beefy t's.  "

Vinyl Pressing Issue

Hi to all!  Need some assistance in trying to figure out why my vinyl decal does not adhere to the t-shirt 100%.  I am using a Versacamm 300, Roland Heatsoft Transfer Material2, Roland Transfer Mask, Hanes Beefy T's 100% cotton and Hotronix manual heat press.  I just purchased the vinyl but the mask material I have had for months.  Settings are 350 deg., 15 sec and firm pressure.  When I lift the platen, the mask at times seems to stay on it and will drop off.  I think I added a picture of the…See More

Ink Reading

Have a SP300 and have checked the ink level.  Slots 3 & 4 are blank.  I have used the unit and do not know how long these two are empty.  Will the unit signal a "Replace Ink Cartridge" or do I automatically change the cartridge when it shows blank level?Also, when pressing the shirts with Heat Soft Polyester Transfer Mask, how many times can the piece of mask be used.  What will notify me that the piece is no longer to be used?Any help is greatly appreciated.Thank YouSee More

How to get a file into VersaWorks

Posted on March 19, 2012 at 11:19am 12 Comments

Hi to all.  Just acquired a used sp-300 and am anxious to get going.  I have tried to transfer a couple of files from Corel into VersaWorks but have not been successful.  From Corel I tried Exporting one file as EPS, another as JPEG and one as TIF.  I then send it to desktop and from there I drag it into VW.  It quickly gives me the message "Stopped processing the input file C:\Users\trooper Desktop\eagle flag-shortcut.lnk  "Unsupported Format" 

I have a Windows7 laptop with Corel…
