You said sprint has limitations. Care to share what it is?

Thanks for th help..
I have 2 heat presses now.
My biggest thing is the reported increase in colour retention, and increased washability of prints cured with a dryer.
And.. Labour.
Toss it in dryer and forget about it.
We'd also like to do caps, cure in oven,
sweatpants legs 6" x 28" print on a Neo could toss in oven, rather than 6 minutes and 4 steps of heat pressing. 90 sec x 4 presses.
My plan was to do all the pretreating of each order first.. press at 80psi , then take the shirts over the the printer / dryer combo set up and do the printing/curing.
I bought a Lawsons pretreat express and also wanted to keep the pretreat/heat press combo away from the printer (over spray?) etc..

I hate tp spend $10,000 on a curing dryer and not need / use it though.

I may start with the press and see?
I am building he printer area and trying to plan for what type of oven (conveyor or cabinet) , running wiring single phase 30 -50 amp? or 80amp? or gas?
building a separate room where the entry belt sticks 20" into the print room , which is also to be near the check out cash for public interest reasons.. look at our cool new Garment printer and what is coming off it.
Plus the employee can serve customers while loading shirts.
I just want the best set up. (we all do).
