any flash unit under $1200 will yield uneven heat distribution. also your flash needs to be able to reach 900 degrees for any real production. cheap flashes range in the 450 degree range. good luck.

amazingly over anylized. the lower temp flash will get hotter than the higher temp flash. trust me on this point. if i have to explain it i will need a glass of cold water first.

think about what is is your trying to get hot. if you slow bake something the radiation needs to be exposed to everything longer before the proper temp is reached, meaning everything is hotter. All you want is the top part of the ink to be gelled so you can print on it. if you hit the ink with 900 degrees the top of the ink will get to 280 before anything else has a chance to get hot so the energy transfer is not quick enough to expose everything.
