Default Help please, starting a home-based sublimation printing business

Hi, Need your advice please.

I really want to start a digital printing business. Currently jobless, so subukan ko ito while naghahanap ng new work. Probably, home-based lang muna. Target market ko siguro friends and relatives or could also sell online.
I've already attended a short free training on digital printing, nakita ko pa lang on how transfers, sublimation, and vinyl cutting, heat press, etc works. Youtube videos din. I've also read a lot of pages here. (Rumble na sa isip ko mga ideas and info) Pero I have not tried in actual yet.

My budget is very limited, but hopefully makakuha ng okey naman na equipment. I don't mind if it's unbranded or made in China, but hopefully yung durable naman, at maganda ang quality ng output.

T-shirt Printing - tama po ba, mas durable ang Sublimation compared sa Light/Dark Transfers, but would only work on Polyester shirts?
Okey po ba ang quality at durability ng Sublimation printing sa mga sports apparel like mga dri-fit shirts? Like kahit i-washing machine?


Eto po ang nasa isip ko: Budget ko kasi as much as possible 30k or less. Kung wala muna yung Cutter Plotter okey sana para meron na ako mga materials, kaya lang baka maging very limited ang magagawa ko.

1. PC - already have. Windows 10 OS. > are their any software compatibility issues?
2. Printer - Epson L120 with CISS > from my understanding, I'll need 2 of this for transfers and sublimation?
3. *Heat Press 15x15 - Cuyi Clam Type > from what I checked, ito yung lower priced na okey naman even for mass production?
4. Mug Press - Cuyi > from what I checked, okey naman ito even for mass production?
5. *Cutter Plotter - Redsail Cutter 24in > from what I checked, durable din ito at okey ang output.


*Would you advice to get the Cuyi 6 in 1 Heat Press? Yung may detachable parts for mug press, cap press, at plate press? Okey po kaya ang durabilty at output quality nito. Or settle na ako sa separate Heat Press and Mug Press? Since I don't think I'd like the plate press. Can I still do cap press using just a heat press?

*If sublimation printing lang muna, there's no need for a Cutter Plotter right? eto kasi nakikita ko na mahal na equipment.

*Redsail Cutter 24inches vs Silhouette Cameo - from what I know, advantage ng Redsail yung size na kayang i-feed sa kanya (24inches) while yung Cameo is limited to 12inches. Advantage naman ng Cameo, mas automated yung cutting nya kasi can read registration marks unlike the Redsail na may kailangan muna i-manual setup bago mag start ng cutting?. Yung Graphtec Craft Robo - same features din ba sya ng Cameo?

*Cuyi and Redsail heat press and cutter - Almost same lang ba sila ng durabity ng equipment and quality ng output?


I've contacted to sellers/distributors. One said they dropped Cuyi because of spare parts availability. The other one said the same about Redsail. Do you think I should really invest on higher priced heat press like Stahls?

Thanks a lot.
