Hi Spool,

I used a canon pixma ip4000, it has regular dye ink, the only transfer paper that ink works on is Jetprosofstretch/JPSS. Dye ink will wash off the other transfer papers.

For this printer you can only use it for JPSS and at that, order a small sample of paper to test it with your printer ink to make sure you get the same great results I did.

If you don't get great results, order an Epson printer with pigment ink for now. Epson.com shows you the printers and what ink is in them.

YOu can use a hand iron, but it is extremely slow and very laborious to make shirts this way. A press is much more efficient, applies better "all over" pressure and is extremely fast compared to hand iron. Only hand iron for as long as needed and get a press as soon as funds allow.

You will need a press, a wholesale supplier for shirts/hoodies/etc, transfer paper, teflon sheets (or silicone or parchment paper to protect the upper platen from messes), and a printer that works with the paper.
