Hello members.

First I need to say this forum is like haven and people here are really THE BEST! I am getting a lot of informations but I am not sure if all information are right.
Like I said in my introduction I am a volunteer in the red cross Slovenia - City of Piran. As designer my focus is making designs, but is not really helping my cause to help people as i would, so I decided to step up with selling t-shirt and other textile because some times I am getting a lot of t-shirts and other textiles from friends who own shops as donation. And this is the reason why we are starting this project with selling and helping families!
My budget is 1000€ but a few day ago my friend tag with me and he will buy a printer :).
The information I get from this forum for starting our project are:
- HEAT PRESS - I choose GALAXY 38×38
- CUTTER - I choose CAMEO 3
- PRINTER - I choose Epson L1300 A3+ ready for sublimation or pigment ink

Guys now the question, are this equipment ok to start?
For transfer paper I read a lot for stahls, joto, jpss paper but still dont know which to choose!
Guys in advance tank a lot for al answers and advices!

I think that the L1300 printer will limit your options on ink. You will be stuck with OEM ink, as it is a tank printer. You won't be able to do dye sublimation, which takes special dye sublimation ink (not the dye based ink that comes with the printer). Also, dye based ink is not the best for other transfers like JPSS. For those, you need pigment based ink. You should look at a cartridge type printer, such as the Epson WF-7610 and see if there is a third party ink supplier in your country. Here in the U.S., I use Cobra Ink.

The Cameo 3 is a good cutter, but would probably be a bit slow for higher volume, but good enough to get you started. I am not familiar with the Galaxy heat press. I have a Knight DK20S, which works well for me.

Hey Tank you for the advice. with my friend decided to buy 2 eposon artistan and 2 ciss system (one for sublimination and 1 for pigment ink).
I saw some good report on galaxy from youtube and I can buy here in Slovenia. But I am still loking for heat transfer paper and heat transfer vinyl. I have a lot of distributors in Italy, Austria even iat home, but dont know where to start :D. I think the best it to order some samples and just try it out!

Problem pres je sledeci. Ce zelis da ti transfer dobro prime je potrebno imeti preso, ki povsod enakomerno porazdeli toploto. To katero ti zelis vzeti je kitajska. Ene par review-ew je na utubeu, predvidevam da od tistega britanca. Nisem jih nasel prav veliko. Ce pa gres normalno iskat pa nikjer nobenega reviewa. Kar , vsaj jaz si mislim, da teh pres ni veliko okrog.
Malo sem zasel. Da prides do enake toplote po celi presi se ponavadi dobri proizvajalci odlocajo, da v preso vstavljajo zice ali karkoli ze, da potem cela presa dobi isto toploto. Pri teh kitajskih presah pa povsod pise, da je enakomerna toplota, nikjer pa besede o tehnologiji, da dosezejo to.
Sem tudi jaz pred nabavo masine in sem rahlo nastudiral par stvari. Torej izogniti se hoces hot spot conam na presi. To da na kitajski presi pise, da ima enakomerno toploto porazdeljeno, jaz osebno jemljem z rezervo. Dokler ne zvem kako to dosezejo. Naprimer presa, ki jo jaz nameravam vzeti ima zig-zag vzorce po celi presi po kateri gre toplota in s tem dosezejo enakomerno porazdelitev toplote. Pa da ne bom predolgo o presi...

Transfer papirji. Ni mi jasno kje bos dobil te transferje, ki jih na temu forumu priporocajo, namrec kar sem jaz nasel pri nas ni ne duha ne sluha o teh transferjih, ki si jih omenil na zacetku svojega posta.

Obenem, do sedaj se nisem nasel pri nas nekoga, za katerega bi lahko zagotovo trdil, da imajo kvalitetna pigmentna crnila...Sem ze razmisljal, da bi jih narocal iz anglije, kar pa bi povecalo stroske...

seacookie Kero preso pa boš ti nabavil? in koliko je cena?
Transfer papirje bom nabavljal večinoma v Italiji ali pa nemčiji, saj so poštnine zelo nizke, nekaj pa jih celo sam lahko skočim kupit v padovo ali udine.
Drugače naslednji teden grem v milano, kjer je kar nekaj distributorjev, seacabo in stahls, tak da bom prečekiral tud za papirje.

Jaz bom vzel od stahls maxx. Pri nas taka presa stane 1222 eurov, v belgiji kosta 1000 eur, s tem, da je postnina za preso iz belgije brezplacna. Narocil jo bom iz belgije. Ne dam kesa tem nasim slovencem,ki bi si radi kupili novga bemfla na racun ene prese. Naj grejo nekam :) Do sedaj mi je bila to najugodnejsa varianta,kar sem jih zasledil. Seveda lahko prpopas kaksen link iz italije sem, ker italijansko ne stekam najbolje in ne bom nasel transferjev niti pres. Bi pa tudi jaz narocal transferje cez mejo, ce imas kaksno odlicno varianto. Definitivno tudi meni pride prav pomoc glede kaksnega dobrega ponudnika. Se zmeraj iscem ciss sistem. Kobra ima ciss, ki ne uporablja plasticnih cevk, in je menda odlicen da se glave ne masijo. Te ki so pri nas uporabljajo vse plasticne cevke....

Aja za secabo so tudi mene prepricevali da jo vzamem. Secabo je kitajska varianta. Kar sem gledal te secabo prese nimajo nic posebnega v primerjavi z stahls, cene pa so enake, ce ne celo visje. Mas secabo dealerja v ljubljani.

hej sele zdaj sem vidu, da si napisla. iz katere strani pa boš vzel, kaj lahko pošlješ link?
Za transferje pa ti bom javil naslednji teden, ko bom v Milanu. Za ciss sistem sem videl tud jaz ta cobra sistem in sem že povprašal prijatelja, ki živi v usa naj se pozanima, kolk pride če on pošlje :) Tak, da če bo poceni ti javim pa magari skupaj naročiva.
Aja še neki, kaj ti boš uporabljal sub barve ali pigmentne?

Se se nisem cisto odlocil. Problem je,ker vsi dobri so po par tisoc evrov. Meni osebno bi bila najboljsa varianta da dobim transferje taksne, ki jih ni treba rezati. Pri laserskem printerju sem jih nasel. Iscem pa nekaj podobnega za ink jet. Drugace razmisljam o Silhouette Cameo. A3 je in zelo poceni. Torej ce ne dobim transferje,katere ni potrebno rezati bom vzel ta rezalnik za zacetek.
