My first D2 print came out faded, should I run another pass over it?

It depends on quite a few factors and sending the garment in for a second pass may not necessarily solve the issue. Faded prints could be related to the file itself, RIP software settings, fabric, the brand of the garment, whether or not pretreatment was used, inks, and print head health. Understanding the basics of D2 printing is fundamental in achieving mediocre versus incredible prints.
