Default polyester

I was wondering if anyone has had experience in transfering something onto polyester with a heat press? I have someone interested in getting some shirts and shorts but he wants polyester. Thanks for the help.

A lot of people likes sublimation on white polyester fabrics.

I believe you can use regular inkjet transfers, but if it's light polyester then you'd be better off using sublimation since it's a far superior print process.
