I have been delving into the world of printing and designing for quite some time, but only recently decided to move over to the heat press side of productions. I've always operated out of the garage in my home, so I want to share with any new comers the process i use to make a t-shirt complete with neck tag.

My PC is somehwat(Hank Hill) state of the art, but I use the traditional design program Adobe Illustrator and it takes care of just about all of my needs. Fortunately, i am a student in the Cal State system so i have a rather inexpensive access point.

I print all of my HTP with my Epson Artisan 1430. I bought this printer about 3 years ago, and it still runs impeccably.
In the photos attached you will see that I have a couple methods for weeding the HTP. This isn't really weeding in the truest sense of the word because it's not entirely intricate, but when dealing with any numbered runs you have to part your images.
I use a square paper trimmer, and also for the more rounded edges and small detailed images i have an exact-o-knife. Happy Cutting! haha, it's time consuming but so rewarding when you get good at it. Cool Hands Prevail! lol.

For the Black T-shirt i used a 3G JET-OPAQUE HTP. So far so good, my prints have been reliable and withstand the wash! if I can assist in any way let me know! or if I missed something please contact!
