| | embossing (using dies) and a lot more
Very little about embossing on the forum but I'm getting a press that should be able to handle at a minimum t-shirts, but probably everything else since it's rated to 6 tons. It's an older geoknight that looks identical to the 394 shuttle press.
I can see a market for this embossing and was curious about a ballpark price for custom made dies. I've seen some that look like they're fiberglass from China. Others look like maybe hard rubber. Then magnesium.
Here's my question. In general terms, how much would it cost to have a 4x4" die made? Again, I'm not asking for your special price, but just generalities.
Also, for transfers and vinyl... I plan on getting a pillow and a non stick sheet, and a bottom slip cover. Should I be looking at much else? I'm pretty excited at finding this and can't wait to add this to our embroidery business for orders that shouldn't really be embroidered (like most t-shirts).
Oh, also (I know many questions). Can I emboss flock? Like buy the flock and then emboss and add it on like an applique?
Any good advice is greatly appreciated. Also if anyone has this press or type am I thinking too much that it will emboss?
