Hello t-shirt gurus,
I'm thinking of getting a heat press to do up some of my own designs and would like to know the main difference between doing my own iron-ons and using a heat transfer, except for the obvious that the press is hotter and the auto ones are less time-consuming.
But really, if I print more than one design on one sheet, do I have to cut the images out right to the edges, or can I leave a box around it that won't show?
Does the glue show or can you get transparent backgrounds?
What is a good heat press to start out with? I know nothing of the terminology...platens, flash, etc... I tried to research this but couldn't understand what everyone was talking about.
Thanks so much for reading and helping a fledgling!
