Hi All! I am looking to create a banner that is lightweight (you can see through it), but I can't seem to find any compatible fabrics for the Z6600. Are there any that could work? We usually work with artist canvas, but this time I'm looking for something a little lighter. Thanks!

Hi Amanda, unfortunately since the Z6600 does not have a platen made for porous fabrics, ink would go right through the fabric onto the printer. Your best option would be to either find a fabric that has a release liner to trap the ink or use a latex printer with a fabric platen that will catch the ink. Feel free to give us a call to have a specialist help you find the best solution.

Thanks, Adam! Are there any fabrics with release liners for the Z6600? I can call the US support number if I don't find any options online.

Nothing that I can think of at the moment. If you call one of our specialists they can document the request so we can do a bit more research to see if there is an option available.
