yeah well, it has not been easy on this board ME making people aware what can be done with plastisol transfers and how easy they are to apply.After reading this forum for over a year, and seeing what heat transfers can do, I've decided to jump in and experience the heat press/heat transfer world first hand.
Do tell more about the plastisol transfers. I just heard about them at the Long Beach show. I'm a small-time t-shirt designer that's been taking my business to the local screenprinter for the past year and half. Looking for an economical (and feasible) way to print 3-5 shirts at a time, if need be. Can you or anyone else in this thread tell me a little about the plastisol transfer process? Do you need a big industrial heat press to use it? OR one of the machines referenced in this discussion? What's the average upfront fee to set up the design and run batch of transfers?
Here I use a Basix 15x15 (old one), but I'm getting a Stahls Automatic 16x20 Heat Press in the near future if all works out.Thanks, Lucy!
Which heat press did you say you're using? And where/what brand of transfer paper do you use/recommend?
...funny. Believe me, you are far from ignorance. You are just asking questions, that's all.Lucy, one more Q:
How do you transfer the image to the transfer paper? Do you just your computer's printer? Ink jet? Laser jet? REally basic (and embarrassing questions), but I'm ready to admit complete ignorance.
