Good day

Im looking for a printer that can print on heat transfer paper, inkjet or laser.
Which one is better,i heard laser is because it wont wash out,is that true?
Whats the sublimation dye,should that rather be used.

And secondly i heard you can use any desktop printer to print on the heat transfer paper and it will work,true?

Which printers do you advise? Want to do around 50prints per hour

Washability is more an application problem, proper heat, time, and paper. Inkjet with pigment ink is what I use and have never had a complaint about washing out.
Dye sublimation is basically inkjet printing with specialized ink. Softer hand and no background as with regular inkjet. More versatile the inkjet (mugs, plates, plaques, etc.), but limited in type of shirts.
Any inkjet printer will print transfers.
Laser printer is more expensive to buy, but will cost less to operate and will print faster. God Bless.
