Suggestion, get sample printed samples of transfer of different types. Press them on shirts. If possible get transferred shirt(s). Put them to wash/dryer cycles. See how they hold up. Some transfers will fade, crack or peel off after wash. Even after first wash. Pick the ones that meet your expectation. Some vendors give free samples of sell small quantity sample.

That way you are not wasting your money.

Selling or buying transfers?
In any case, plastisol is not the only option... water-based inks can be used as well

Default Re: Heat transfer business

Have you written a Business Plan? A Marketing Plan? Who are your customers? Where are you going to sell? Are you doing a brand or spec printing?

Aside from that I wouldn't buy any equipment, I would focus on sales and source your printing and use those funds to purchase equipment if and when you are ready to do it yourself.

Good Luck
