My buddy and I are very new to this and we are in the VERY early stages of starting our own T-Shirt business. We are not yet sure how we plan to print (either outsource to a 3rd party or invest in our own printing equipment.) I was hoping you guys and gals might have some insight into Heat Press and Heat Transfer methods. I'd like to hear your experiences with them and maybe some recommendations on which machines work better than others. Also, are there any particular printers that print better than others for this method? Our budget is right around $500-$700 for the machine alone, but obviously we'd like to keep it closer to $500 than $700 if we can do it with out sacraficing quality. Any input is highly appreciated. Thanks and BTW, this site is pretty awesome!
