Hi my name is Donna and I am trying to start a T-shirt business, but have limited funds. I have an inkjet printer and would like to buy a press that would match the type of printer I am using. I have an HP printer. Some of the printers that I found on Ebay talk about dye sublimation. Can I use this press? Do I need special ink for my printer and can I buy it for this printer.

I am a farmer with many animals to feed and care for, so I need to make this work. I have seen the 4 in 1 combo presses that I can do many things on and it cost about $400 or so. Is that something I might need to consider?

Thanks,
Donna

Hi Donna,

Here is a recent post about combo press - http://www.t-shirtforums.com/heat-press-heat-transfers/t51899.html

Here is another recent post explaining set up of dye sublimation and transfer paper printing to another new member - http://www.t-shirtforums.com/member-introductions/t57743.html

If you live near Atlanta there are two industry tradeshows coming up that would be informative for you. They have others throughout the year in other areas of the country too. One should be nearby.

SGIA '08 - The Specialty Printing & Imaging Expo

Imprinted Sportwear Shows

Hope that helps! Feel free to post questions in the Dye Sublimation forum too. Good luck.
