Thumbs up Re: Sell T-shirts 101 Chapter '1'

Hi fred,

First thankx for the rambling - it was muchos usefull. I was hoping that some much needed advice could be dished out.

I run a design company which wants to start creating quality sub transfers for sale. We want our products to be vibrant and full of colour. Unfortunately we have tryed to replicate the colours on our preview screen and they just don't seem to come out. We use mugs, tshirts and canvass - all purcheced from xpres.

The equipment we are using is the EPSON R1800 with a sublimation bulk feeding system from purple monkey. We have a multi press 38x38cm Heat press set at 205 C. And we press for about 30 seconds on a high pressure setting.

When we seem to press the colours are not as bright as we hope they would be LSO THE LINES SEEM TO BE SLIGHTLY BLURED. the blue in particular is not bright...We are unsure if its to do with the press time/pressure, or we have set up our printing incorrectly.

We currently print from Adobe Illustartor and use the perceptual setting and we have the colour profile pm_r1800_v1.icm.

Any advice would be well apreciated as we are becoming fustrated with our expenive results...lol

Thanks and take care

To get better exposure for your question and have a better chance in members finding it to post an answer, you may want to start a new topic for your question in the Dye Sublimation section of our forum.

Members don't read every thread, so the members with dye sublimation experience may not think to look for a dye sub question buried in a thread 2 years old about "sell t-shirts 101 chapter 1"

Great article.
However on the sub ink there is TOG that sells the sub ink and is battling sawgrass in court so there is still another option for it and many use.

Thanks

Good info thanks---I am still learning so I go to Fallas or Factury 2 U and they have heavy duty tee for $.99. These are great for practice. I usally buy up all that is on the rack at that price. Mostly white but sometimes blue and green. I have to check them twice a week but I get a good supply to learn on.

Great, great, great, information, just what I was looking for.
I have a question, I am very new and plan on marketing a statement(text only) on t-shirts, from what I am reading on this post, a heat transfer would be the best.
Stupid question, does the excess heat transfer dissolve into the shirt or is it visible.

If I understand your question right. If you place text onto your shirt with heat transfer you would need to cut around the lettering to decrease the window or excess transfered to the shirt that was visible. If you do not trim around the lettering then the shirt would appear to have a slightly visible box around it. Hope this helps.
