Your equipment choices are right on. I have the exact setup and after using the smaller setups, I am glad I upgraded.
I guess that is why I am asking the people here what has worked for them. I have my own ideas for selling sublimation. I want to add it to my large format printing I currently do for sporting events. I just figured I could broaden my market by getting idea from the people in the know.Hi Robert. The machinery is only a tool to use, same as a hammer, or a saw.
Making money is all about creating a product that people want to buy and stimulating enough interest to get them to part with their money.
Approaching churches and schools is ok, but remember that sublimation has its limits, which is essentially being limited to polyester material and light garments. You need to devise a marketing plan that takes those limitations into account. The level of business those types of outlets will create, will only keep your machinery in use for a few days. What do you plan to do the rest of the time?
I also upgraded to a 4880, but knowing what I know now, I would have gone to a 7600. A nice used 7600, refillable carts and bulk inks would be considerably less than a new 4880. A new 7880 would be a little more than a new 4880 but considering the bottled bulk ink is a fraction the 4880 ink, if you do any volume at all, you'd make up the difference quickly in ink savings.Your equipment choices are right on.

How do you handle the licensing on the NFL and NASCAR?I've been also selling NASCAR and NFL products and now looking at getting out of that after moving into a shopping mall our custom work has gone grazy. Good luck and have fun.
We buy all products from licened wholesalers that is the only way I can do it. The cost is just to great for the licence because each design and product needs a different licence.How do you handle the licensing on the NFL and NASCAR?
Do smaller venues, like trade shows, RV shows, Boats etc work?
