What exactly are you looking to do? You can start with a print and cut set up where you print out and then cut and weed the transfers, but you may soon grow out of it. Another option is a white toner laser printer and no cut laser transfer papers. This set up with paper, printer and heat press will run you around $10,000, but will provide you with the most options. I am having great success creating transfers for both light and dark substrates using an OKI DATA pro920WT white toner laser printer and FOREVER transfer papers.
