Alrite, I was all bent on purchasing/leasing the fast t-jet2 but then I did some reading on the sites forums and continually came across the hell people were going through with the nozzle clogs etc. Plus the owner scott seems [not nice].

I want to print custom T-s for a profit and my requirements are:
1. Soft Hand
2. The ability to print on dark shirts
3. Economic feasbility, I want to turn a nice profit

I am now considering going the hot-peel heat transfer route. Any thoughts? Tjet seems too slow, too expensive, doesnt do white (WELL!). Screen print transfers are costly to order, and screen printing is too much to learn & too messy.
Is there something that exists which will suit my needs?
The local HS is prepared to give me all its orders for school function shirts throughout the school year. I am doing the graphic design and was planning on buying the tjet, but like i said, after hearing all the horror stories I am not going to throw down 15K for huge headaches and the possibility of not meeting my obligations.

Any advice is welcome.

thanks for the replies. So far I have decided to outsource to a company like first-edition.com. Does anyone know of any better sites price wise? I was thinking of ordering the heat transfer sheets and heat pressing them myself. I'm over the DTG hype for now. I've researched it to death. BTW, I live in oregon so vegas isn't that too far. When is the tradeshow?
Thanks for the replies.
One more thing. I have my own t-shirt design company that I trademarked my logos and everything already. The designs I have lined up are very psychedelic, i.e. colourful. What would be the best commercial method of pulling off such vivid and colourful pics with a soft hand?

Also, do the hot peel transfers work well on hoodies?

Thanks all.
peace

alrite, so far so good.
Solmu..screen printing is too messy, too involved FOR ME...maybe not for you or others, my preference.
Dye sublimation? I will start researching this. Anyone have some real grounded links so i can learn about this?
Here is another post I just put up.
Do those look like dye sublimation?
