I have purchased a Maxx Press Digital 15x15 and can't wait for it to arrive. But I have a question. I am first going to limit myself to rhinestone transfers and mouse pads transfers. With that said, I am going to scan pictures to transfer onto the mousepads. Which paper do I use. I have a HP 7000 which uses dye ink, but since the pads more than likely won't be washed like a shirt I'm not really concerned about the fading. I just need help on the type of paper to use (confusing to a newbie). With this machine do I really need a teflon sheet? If I do decide to go to T-shirt transfers (other than rhinestones) do I need the paper or anything else other than the T-square. I have seached the internet for stock rhinestone transfers and seem to fine that ThreadArt has the best designs for the best prices. If you know anyone that makes custom at a reasonable price for a wholesaler please give me the info. I appreciate the big business's but would like to work with a mom & pop also. Thanks in advance
Well Most pepole would use sublimation ink and paper to print on mouse pads.... Ive never heard of it being done with dye ink... Because mouse pads are a heavy use product and will fade if they are only one top of the product like dye ink!
I have used an HP with dye ink on t-shirts but not on mousepads. (I was just testing to see how it would work, and as you said it faded badly in the wash.) I have an Epson and I use JPSS on mousepads. The dye ink in your HP will work the same on JPSS, not sure about the fading though but you are not concerned with that anyway.
