3. How long does the ink last on shirts and other washable objects?
The printing will last for a long time until you wash it or it’s soaked with water or sweat, which will wash away the ink.
Please note that in order to ensure that the printed patterns or text are not easily erased, you can purchase waterproof coating and varnish yourself. (Available on eBay and Target...)
The non-absorbent materials require coating, such as plastic, metal, ceramic, glass, and wood. Water-absorbent surface can be printed directly, such as paper, carton, wall.
Coating before printing, varnish is sprayed after printing, which can play a waterproof and anti-wiping effect

6. Can I print on metal/glass?
If you print on paper material, whether it's the standard ink or the permanent ink, the printing pattern will dry quickly without being smeared.
If you want to leave a lasting pattern on metal, glass, plastic or clothing, choose the permanent ink cartridges. Mbrush permanent ink is the gel-based ink. It will be water-resistant and not washed away by water once the ink has dried.
However, due to the smooth surface of metal, glass, plastic and other materials, and different temperature and humidity in each place, the permanent ink dries for a long time. If you are looking for faster and better long-lasting printing, you can purchase additional clear varnish spray and it can keep the color fixed.

Mbrush can print on Black Surface but it can not show the color perfectly if the ground color is too dark. Printing white color is not supported.

The Black color you see in the video or campaign page is printed by the Mbrush. The cartridge prints black by combining percentages of cyan, magenta and yellow. and that's how the tri-color works.
9. Printers clean themselves periodically to avoid getting clogged, does yours?
We suggest you clean the Mbrush ink outlet at least once a month. When you're not using it, it's better to put the lid on. Btw, Mbrush has the clean function, which supports you long-press the button and it will print 3 color line so you know the printing status in advance.
