As far as I know you have the pros/cons down accurately.

There are specific shirts made for dye sub that have cotton inners (for customer comfort) and polyester outers (for printing on), but they're not cheap.

You're probably going to have to stick with vinyl/digital transfer/plastisol then. If you try different brands of transfer paper you might find one that is more to your liking than others.

By the way... I thought I read somewhere that digital transfers adhere better to poly also - is this incorrect? It certainly doesn't get mentioned a lot, so maybe I'm mistaken.

Do you need a special heat press for this??
Nope.


The results of dye sublimation are, in ideal conditions, very good. I have a couple of dye sub samples I'm doing some test washes on (along with my screenprinting test prints), so hopefully I'll put some scans up eventually.
