Agreed. If you can afford an initial invesment, you can get started doing heat transfer for somewhere between $200 and $2000. Another option would contacting a local printer and having them make the shirts to sell; this is kind of an 'in-between' option.

You can search some older posts of mine for more details, but the basic recommendations for that would be: Epson printer with Durabrite or Magic Mix inks, Transjet II/Magic Jet paper, and for the most part any kind of heat press (Hix is popular, and I'd avoid Geo Knight).

Advantages to each. Plastisol you will have to buy in moderate bulk and you are limited in how many colors you can use (same as screenprinting, more colors cost more money). On the plus side, it should give a little better quality and also the ability to transfer on to dark shirts.

The only other thing that I can think of that you might be talking about 'better transfers' would be vinyl flock which can be applied with a heat press as well. Inkjet transfers are quite good quality if you use good inks and papers (on light shirts, anyway).
