Hey teeface, welcome to the jungle. A lot of folks who don't press many shirts use oem type ink with some adjustment (a good bit of trial and error is needed) and are mostly happy. If you intend to press many shirts I would suggest using pigment ink formulated for garment printing. These inks do not "shift" color under heat and pressure. They make pressing much simpler. I personally like cobra ink on the web. I like buying from the same company so I can get the same results each time. Good luck with the shirts. Hope this helps.
