I had previously received some sample from First Edition and that was great but none were in their larger size of 12 x 12. I requested again some samples in that size and they sent some more samples that I wanted to place on dark colors and I would be working in white.. Folks.. This company came through and I just finished a bunch of test.. Am I happy.. no.. I am ecstatic.. I will not only be using Plasticol in the future but I will be using First edition. I will be placing my test on my web on wed. If you want to see them they will be available later in the day. Rodney How can I place pictures here without having them on my web site.

Very nice results, I actually have my first order from Transfer Express coming next week so it's good to see someone else having good results with this!

Lou I did some of my own plastisol tests on light and dark shirts. Hotsplit transfers from Pro-world. I was blown away at the quality of the prints, detail available and ease of use. 385 firm pressure for 8 seconds peel immediatly...perfect print everytime. I was so impressed I joined thier club to get 10% discounts on all transfers purchased, free ground shipping and 2% cash back at the end of the year deal. I started my business just doing vinyl graphics at auto events....moved into doing custom t-shirts with cad cut materials...that about doubled my show profits but you can only do so much work no matter how many customers you have in front of you. We started taking orders for car clubs at the events and shipping the shirts. With the plastisol transfers I see another couple areas to increase profits without much more work involved. Now comes event shirts and custom made transfers per specific customers, clubs and shows. We shall see next weekend as I am going to test some shirts with the crowds.

I am glad you all like the results. In about an hour I will be showing them to a local school. The results will be about 400 tee shirts and Hooded sweats. This would be a great order. I did 6 different designs for them. Wish me luck.. the good part is my daughter is a teacher there. Lou

way-to-go lou,
thanks for taking the time to display some samples/test etc.

I'll be honest with you, we have not made a cold peel plastisol transfer in a few years now.... (not including glitters of course).

I can't understand why such still exist ???? what am i missing out on ?

Please, somebody make me see the light here. :confused:

I use proworld also. I was amazed when I made my first shirt. I've thought about joining the club.

i agree, proworld is a great resource. I though that they just re-sold stuff from x-it and others etc.... but may be i'm wrong. :(

hey you proworld fans....:) , does proworld also manufacture iron-on transfers for magazine inserts ? i've been diggin' around and i have not yet found a company that does this. Of couse we are talking in the millions production of iron-ons.
Please give me some leads here, i have a bet going with my boss (he tells me i'll be lucky if i find 1 or 2 in the entire North America).

Please fellas/Gals, i just need one name to win this bet. Help !!!!! :p

I thought someone had posted that not long ago about magazine inserts. I think it was on one of the plastisol posts...maybe the one with the list of transfer companies. I think his post had something to do with having a 4 color litho of the image printed on the back of the transfer for positioning purposes. There were a couple photo examples and I think it had something to do with Barbie!

hummm...David. :( thanks.

one more thing David. For sure proworld is the # 1 place to buy stock iron-on's on the web from what i know. They offer a great selection and have been around for a while.... bonus !

Do they do custom transfers? pro world, that is.
I dont think they do custom...just a good resource for stock transfers. I would go to another source for oversized gang sheets for custom. I have a couple shows in October that I will have some event transfers made. Probably do a small test run first with my company shirts.

Hey Lou, have you tried http://www.transferexpress.com/site/clipart_index.asp
as I know they do custom transfers also I ordered some plastisol transfers for a local baseball team and some numbers also they worked great. Also sent a sample of some of there other transfers. Put them on a test shirt last night and they look great. Also I emailed you about a week ago in regards to buying a printer to make transfers but did'nt hear back from you. I am a looking to buy a printer to put pictures onto Tee's and Sweatshirts. What would you suggest? Thanks in advance for the help.
