Finally decided to make an account here, have been using these forums to answer most stuff i was curious about for quite sometime now. My grandpa runs a print shop, est. 1968. That field of work has slowed down to say the least so were starting up a tshirt business finally, purchased a workforce 1100, heatpress, inks, and a couple sample packs last week.
I've got a few questions, I kept seeing people say 1100 was industry standard so i jumped on it assuming it had a type of self weeding paper (left me hand cutting my first shirts over the weekend)
Should i get a cheap cutter (300$ is best i can do for now, would it be worth my time until ive got solid work)
Purchase a Graphtec GX3000? I know somone with one for sale or would trade for tools. Which Ive got stuff i know hes interested in. (no clue if its a good cutter, or price it goes for new.)
Or, buy a decent laser printer and use the imageclip papers since it can be done with lights and darks i believe. Would do this until i dug my self out of the starting hole
then purchase one of the 24inch cutters you see in most shops (would the quality be usable for commercial use to last me until i purchase a cutter?)
if i shouldnt be asking here then someone pm me with your opinion on what you'd do in my situation and why. Thanks!
