I am running a epilog 35 watt machine and would like to try printing
on denim cloth or blue jeans. What speed and power ???? any idea.

Hey Pete,
I have great luck using 100% speed at 25% Power and keeping the PPI low ... around 300. I use a 100 watt Explorer so you'll probably want to hit it around 45-50% power. You'll also find that new (dark color) material works best for contrast, and that vector drawings are almost essential. Photo quality is very shy. Hope that helps.

I have an Epilog Legend 24, 35 watt power supply and use speed=90 power=70 for most denim projects. Make sure you use heavy denim (11 ounce minimum), the thin material will burn right through or it won't make it through the first wash cycle.

I found some cheap denim bags at Walmart to practice on and get my settings.
