www.transferexpress.com is a very high quality company. A heat press, a printable garment, and the transfer are all you need.
note: job 3 above was 4c processOkay, transfer costs for three jobs, rounded to the nearest dollar...
Now, jobs 1&2 can be ganged on the same sheet because they are the same color, my actual cost from F&M will be around $40, but my ganged cost from TE would be $227. These are TE PLUS prices right out of the book.Code:
F&M TE job1 $38 $105 job2 $40 $123 job3 $190 $unknown*
Jobs 1&2 are single color jobs, Job 3 is a full color + 2 color job, TE has no pricing in their book for full color. F&M prices are current, TE prices are as of Feb '08.

Thanks for the nice words.. actually I am in California and they are in Ohio. They were near Jerry not me. I do use them because of service, price and quality. There are others such as First-Edition and transfer express. seem all the good ones are on far away. LouI want to get into heat transfers. I have been sublimating for years and have never taken advantage of using my heat press to do Heat transfers that you have made and shipped. I have a sample pack coming from ACE Transfer because I know Lou uses them and he's been doing this awhile. I know Ace is really close to where he lives and I may want to get a company closer to Idaho for shipping costs and time.
What are some other cgood companies and what else is there to know about doing this process. Lou's YouTube videos make it seem straightforward.
You need to log in to TransferExpress.com to see their prices. Just give them a call, and they will set you up.I went onto Transfer Xpress, It seems to be a high quality company. I popped around the site but did not see any pricing. With my sublimation I can do one offs and actually make more profit (not including time) but I realize that is not possible with the transfers. What are typical setup fees. I used to design for a screenprint company and they charged $20.00 for each screen/ five dollars for the film and then depending on the artwork there was usually a setup fee for color seperating the artwork to film. I saw none of this info on their site.
Is this transfer process cost effective for orders under 24 shirts with 1 or 2 colors or is it more for 36 and up. I live in a small town and most of my orders are only a couple dozen or less. This has been great for sublimation but it limits the shirts I can offer the customer.
This is one of the reason I use Ace. I did an order for 700 shirts and had the transfers made (3 days), shipped (Overnight), and pressed (14 hours over 3 days)and delivered total time 8 days from taking order.Ace is probably one of the better ones thats close to you. I use First Edition and have really good results from them. They have fairly long turn around unless you pay rush fees (which are pretty reasonable especially at their low prices), but I'm close enough that everything comes overnight. So, kinda evens out with the difference in shipping time and cost.
who does that.. Not Ace. I get ganging all the time. Example one color, muliples of same image on sheet (ganging) is 50 at 1.50 each. so if I had 3 x 3 design I could get 9 images on a sheet (11 x 11) and each image is .16.75 centsI know they charge $.80 per image per sheet surcharge for ganging images and I was wondering what I would be getting for the extra money considering it would double the cost on many of my orders.
Do they do 4c process printing? I didn't see it listed on their website.
I emailed them a job and had them quote me a price over the phone. On that job she quoted $.80 per sheet extra over their regular (non-ganged) pricing. I didn't do the math to see if it jibed with their published pricing, I just took their word on it.who does that.. Not Ace. I get ganging all the time.

4 color images are 50 at $6.85 each then each image is .76 cents each.
It is about numbers and color count.
First Edition is great..but they are very slow. They don't ship until 10 days after you submit artwork.http://www.t-shirtforums.com/t-shirt-crossover-diary-heat-press-newbie/t13454.html
I believe First Edition is out your way.
Thanks, I didn't realize they took so long. That's kinda my problem with Dowling, they ship 10-14 days after submission. Thats probably fine for retail sales but too slow for custom work.First Edition is great..but they are very slow. They don't ship until 10 days after you submit artwork.
