It would be nice just to buy one of those and use regular vinyl for a poor mans print and cut , all the other stuff seems no good for commercial use, I still cannot understand why we don't have a proper sublimatable Vinyl which is as good as regular print and cut, I mean you use a cutter on regular garment Vinyl it's there for life. For the record apart from it being RBG black the OKI 711WT that I had wasn't bad at all using the forever brand for darks, I have a shirt on now that is just starting to crack but it has had many washes, not the best feel to it though.
As I mentioned so far I'm getting good results with Jet Opaque ll. It is heavy though. I think eco solv and vinyl would be the best solution. But you are into thousands of dollars even for the printer without a cutter.

No tricks really. It images nice and is easy to use.

The hand is there but I use the heaviest weight 100% cotton tshirts so the hand isn't noticed as bad wearing the tshirt.

I haven't tried using my vinyl cutter for it yet, just a manual paper cutter.

3G Opaque - We print hundreds of shirts on this stuff - RIP shirts birthday shirts - I tell my customers its can last 5-20 washes it all depends on how you treat the garment. That they are meant for a one time use. But I have done some for my self that lasted over 20 washes. I actually like how it looks when it cracks LOL It actually looks really nice when it gets cracked really bad. Gives it that vintage look.

One thing to make sure is put a lot of pressure. We press everything we do with inkjet transfers twice.
Good luck

I have been seeing good reviews of the Starcraft for darks but haven't tried it myself. I have used the Starcraft adhesive on ceramic and it looks great. It's very thin and Cricut people are having issues cutting it too deeply because they don't change their settings so then they have trouble peeling it off the backing paper.
