The above threads are not necessarily definitive, I'm sure there are other great threads on the topics. So if you have better threads that answer the above questions, feel free to post those too.

We want a few of the best threads on each topic, so when better examples are found we can replace the weaker ones with those.

What's the difference between pigmented inks and dye-based inks?
Pigment vs dye ink.. Why?

(I think Lou did another thread that was similar a while back that may be a little more in-depth, but the pictures give a pretty good idea.)

So I'm a newbie. I run a small football league. To help save costs and raise money by doing extra work we got a heat press. There is nobody within 25 miles that has one. So I wanted to know where to get precut vinyl. I tried looking at stahls but that website is hard to read. Are there any other places to get precut packs. Also it says 10 per pack. How many comes in apace? Is it a sheet full,of numbers? Is it 10 sheets? All the places I've been around with heat presses had individual precut , not sheets. I am not ready to get a cutter yet. Maybe in the future. Thanks

I like Transfer Express. Make sure to make use of their "Speedy Air" delivery option. It's a free upgrade from their ground shipping price. They cut out my individual names last time, and numbers, too.
