The FreeJet 330-series of DTG printers has a Layer setting that is used to let the printer know if the print job sent to the printer is for a single color layer (for white shirts) or for two-layer prints, including a white underbase (for any shirt color other than white).

Single layer prints for white shirts should be run with the printer set to Layer ‘A’, while two-layer prints should be run with the printer set to Layer ‘B’.

The below video and following step-by-step instructions provide the details for changing the Layer setting.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Use the following steps to toggle the FreeJet 330-series Layer setting between the ‘A’ & ‘B’ settings.

  1. Press and hold the Function button until the Status indicator light changes color and stops flashing.
  2. Tap the Up or Down button to change the Layer setting.
    • Press Up to change from Layer ‘A’ to Layer ‘B’.
    • Press Down to change from Layer ‘B’ to Layer ‘A’.
  3. Tap the Function button to save the Layer setting.

Wrap Up

Use the recommended setting of ‘A’ or ‘B’ for the color of shirt you’re printing for the most efficient and trouble-free printing.

If you send a two-layer print job to the FreeJet when its Layer setting is ‘A’, simply tap the Stand by button when the printer has completely finished printing the white layer and becomes idle. Note that the Error light will be on, but the error condition will be cleared after you tap Stand by.
