Hello,
I am looking to print my own transfers. What is a good printer to use? I print a lot of rainbows and I would like to find a reasonably priced printer. I have a heat press and a hat press, if I print my own transfers what is a good paper to use? Thanks guys!

A good printer is any of the Epson Workforce printers. Get a ciss to go with it and use bulk pigment ink, which can be bought off of e-bay. The ink that comes with the printer is dye ink and will fade. I use jet pro soft stretch paper for light shirts.

For dark colors, you will want a contour vinyl cutter like this one Saga Contour Vinyl Cutter 720 - SagaCNC that can contour cut around the sublimation transfer. The reason for this is that the excess unprinted area on the paper when pressed onto a dark garment can leave a white cloudy haze. Cutting the unused portion away resolves this problem. You also would need a backer board like this one to support the transfer in the cutter: Vinyl Cutter Cutting Mat - SagaCNC
