Hi to you all! I have my heat press, the t shirts and some sublimination paper but where do I start. I have my own designs but do I need a special printer or would an ordinary printer do. Really new to this please someone help! Thanks!

Anything you can't find, just post a new topic and we'll be happy to help
Well actually die sub could be called a heat transfer too, since the die sub inks would be printed onto a transfer paper and then heat pressed onto a polyester garment. The important thing to know is which type of heat transfers are you planning on working with?
I'd bet you are actually wanting to do typical ink jet transfers, in which case the paper is not called sublimation paper. Die Sublimation uses special sublimation inks, and their is a higher learning curve. It produces excellent results, but cannot be used on cotton. It's a whole different process really Andy.
