Smile Dye Sub on a 4800..

I know this is the wrong thread to post this one, but this thread gets the most traffic; and im hoping to get some good help.
Our facility has 2 epson printers, one 2200 that we use for our basic films, and a 4800 that we are trying to set up for dye sub.
I've been youtubing videos on how to set it up but couldn't find much help..
From what i understand we need a rip software that will allow our printer to use hybrid inks.
What inks do i use along with the proper rip?
What type of media is necessary?
And is it as simple as printing out the media, placing it on the garnment and heat pressing it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Thanks!

Why convert a great printer like the Epson 4800 to dye sub. You can pick up the Ricoh dye sub printers at a low price. They are setup and ready to print.......

My 2 cents.....

You may not need a RIP, check out the printer systems at conde.com. We have CIS for the 4800 and carts, too. You can call us, we have a lot of expertise with the 4800. However, that other fellow is correct, the Ricoh is a better investmest.
