6/6 should be a minimum(think process and dark garment), and try calling local suppliers see if they have used equipment.

Yes. 4 heads will not be enough limiting your operation to only four colors and in the end you will feel disappointed. So do not waste it if you can provide yours with 6 heads at least.

Hey all, I have been using a heat cure system that I have not heard of any one else using. It is an infrared space heater. I made a rack with hinges that I lay the shirt on, tilt it up in front of the heater and leave it there for about 30 to 60 seconds. I have never scorched a shirt even after 90 seconds and the laser reads 400 deg. Has anyone else ever used this idea? I have a drawing of the idea if anyone wants to see what I am meaning.

Okay, flash cures and ovens may be used to cure ink on shirts but we know they are not designed to cure inks. Both methods have dangers(as sometimes noted above) and because there are so many variables it is difficult to asses the degree of cure that is achieved by these methods. Additionally they are notoriously slow. From all of the above the use of a heat press is likely to provide the best result(controlled heat/time on image area) - though a conveyor dryer is the preferred method.
