A Digital Printing Network
We use solutions opaque and clear to print on then apply with a heat press. I don't know that I would use a hand iron for projects going to customers. You really should use an even pressure that you get from a heat press when applying. I don't believe you can get the same even pressure using an iron.
this is just testing different things, its not for a client, just playing around , i know a heat press would be much better, but i cant get one just yet
Chris there are plenty and plenty of us who use our machines for garment transfers.
Have you checked the archives and the photos section?
You'll likely find many, many threads and a wealth of information on this subject
But that being said, like John warned, I doubt anyone would recommend using a hand-iron for application
Thanks... didnt even think to look there... ;)
I have seen some cool stuff done with quickprint, solutions opaque and some other cad print materials on this site. Between the archives and photo section that Di mentioned you will really get a good idea of what the versacamm can do as far as apparel goes.
You can make some really awesome stuff on the print and cut machines, I have a VS-300 and the sky is the limit in terms of the different designs you can come up with and print on shirts, ect. But to do it right you need a heat press, cause when you sell it and the image looks like junk after a couple washes your never gonna sell that person anything again, not to mention all the people they tell.
wow just spent the whole afternoon and nite looking through the pictures and then i found the videos...lol..got a little side tracked ..but man there are some very talented people on here...glad i found this site!
Eric, never thought about selling to the public, just playing around for my kids, but its got me thinking!!
at the moment its a huge investment that i cant afford right now.
theres a local shop doing vinyl cut prints at around $50 including t-shirt... i was in there the other day and 3 customers in 15 minutes ..no one bought anything....there was no value IMO,
Digital on the other hand could be different
Are you saying $50 per t-shirt?
thats what they where charging...i cant see them doing to much business
