Hi everybody!
I ironed on my first T shirt with walmart transfer paper on an old white V neck last night.
I have a few questions....
Am I allowed to sell T shirts of my design to students on my high school campus?
Should I get a vendors license?
What is the best transfer paper to use with a normal iron?
What is a good low budget heat press i can get once I make some money?

Welcome to the forums!
Were are you from?

The best entry level press would be 250 bucks a sunnie don't go with one on ebay you wont like the results..... here is the link for the sunnie
Digital 15x15 Clamshell Flat Heat Press (Free Shipping) [HP4801] - $249.99 : Sunie.com, Leading Provider of Signs Equipment.

I don't know of any iron on transfers that work because I have never used them...

hey thanks so much man. I'm 15 and planning on selling to my school lol.

Any tips on marketing to highschoolers?
How much do you sell for?
Well I market thought facebook page! And i sell for 12-13 whatever I freel like that day... to friends i do like 10.... but make sure your making atleast double profit.. i spend about 4-4.50 per shirt then make like 6-7 bucks profit per shirt.... its decent...
sweet man.. i was thinking to sell to my friends for 10 and if they bring me people i'll charge them 12 and give 2 to the friends. i'll try facebook also. (btw I like your style)

last questions... do your shirts crack and fade very badly? should I consider ordering my designs as plastisol instead of just printing them?
nope mine work fine! i use jpss with pigmented ink! ive gotten over 10 washes on my original test one no fading at all.. i have even bleached it...
But i use a comercial heat press.... you have to be willing to invest a few bucks before you make any...
