I am newbie and have got a few good designs to be used on ties.
My problem is I'm on a tight budget and haven't got many choices.
I thought about buying a heat press (40x50cm). I checked the forum to find out what to look for.
Initially I was going to buy a heat press on ebay but this might not be a good idea.
So I checked recomended here on the forum places and:
the best option for now is:
£938.83 (vat incl) Hotronix® MAXX Heat Press 40x50cm as advertised here:
Hotronix® MAXX Heat Press | Target Transfers
then there are some Adkins models:
£925 (vat excluded) Heat Press 38 x 50cm (15 x 20") - XP7006A
and the same price here:
The Magic Touch (GB) Ltd - Manual Heat Transfer Press, Manual Clam Press
Those heat presses have even good reviwies:
I relaised that for a good heat press I will have fork out about £1000.
Then Epson R1400 printer and ink and paper about £300-400.
So I need about £1,5k for a start.
However if I went for this simple screen printing starter:
Screen Printing Floor Standing Flash Curer Dryer Unit on eBay (end time 30-Aug-10 10:49:12 BST)
What do you think?
Sublimation is out of my price range.
What would you recommend to a newbie?
Can I use heat transfers for my one color designs?
