    Sublimation costs

    I haven't gotten into sublimation yet...yet. But I do HTV to make youth baseball, softball, and tball jerseys every spring. I like the sumblimation better and would like to offer it to the league this spring; my son plays on travel ball that uses sublimation jerseys, and I really like them, as does he. What colors could I offer to sublimate on? Am I limited to white? or light colors? What would cost be to contract out the printing only on say 12-13 kids for 20-30 teams, for a 6" x 10" logo for the jersey? And would it be more cost effective to use HTV for the numbers or sublimation on both sides? I'm going to provide everything possible with the exception of the ink and the printer, I plan on laying out the logo's for the front and numbers etc. So, this person can just load paper and hit print.(I'm sure not that easy, but..) Thank you for any help as always. Fabian

    SG400 profiles

    I'd like to get into sublimation, is the SG400 a good machine to start with? thanks. Are there any drawbacks, etc. I started doing HTV last year, and stay as busy as I want. But, looking to add some new stuff. lol

    HTV unrolling...

    Thanks for the idea. Makes a lot of sense now that you say that.

    Laserpoint vs SC Series

    I have a 34" SC and have used it for about 4 years. It's paid for itself several times, it is kind of loud though. I use a lot of Siser material and the only thing I've had any trouble with is the Metallic, but I eventually got it to cut. Haven't done much contour cutting, but I cut a lot of HTV and decals.

    HTV unrolling...

    It's not a great big deal, but wondering if anyone has found a solution. I cut a lot of sports jerseys and when I'm cutting I'll cut a few numbers and look down and the entire brand new roll of HTV will be piled up on the floor. You can't get rolled back on as straight either. I've tried hanging something over the rollers so it doesn't roll as free, but doesn't work too great. So, I was hoping someone else has an idea of how to stop this problem... Thanks for any help.
  6. Madhatter, I'm working my way into sublimation. I started all this with my wife's cricut she got for Christmas, and wanting helmet decals for my son's baseball team...I didn't know I'd enjoy it as much. Now that I've done a couple of different sports leagues...I want to offer them a little more. I've all ready warned my wife, that sublimation was where I was heading. lol
  7. How did this work for you? I was thinking about trying some Joto Parapy to print some baseball jersey logos on a polyester shirt. It's a tourney team and a 2nd set so they won't be used much...just wondering how long they last and if it's worth it. thanks.
  8. Looking for Girls Sleeveless T's in High Vis yellow or Safety green or Softball yellow. Looking for 50/50 poly-cotton or cotton T's. I found some from Augusta Brand but not in this color. Thanks.

    That's my question too. lol I was doing an outline...and the big number for the back of the shirt came out fine for the outline...but the name...shrunk before I could line it up...Thanks for the tip on not running it the full time. I was hoping to find some kind of answer, I knew I wasn't crazy.

    I was reading through your posts...I did buy up some white & black because of baseball season. But, this is my first time I am going to get the bid, as I've only been doing shirts for about 6 months. Can I ask where you get your shirts...Jiffyshirts is about as cheap and ships overnight to my SW Okla address. But, is there anywhere else I should be looking. And...the biggest thing for me is where do you find hats? Thanks for any help you can give.

    heat transfer were to start?

    I have an SC cutter and started during football season making jerseys for the flag football league. Have sold lots of shirts, but it helps when your sister buys a pizza place and wants T's for her employees. I'm about to do about 300 kids for youth baseball, and it will be my largest order. I just have a 15" x 15" manual press. It's all ready paid for itself a few times. I wish I had bought one with a hat press attachment. So, I'm about to have to purchase one.

    Small letters with an SC

    That's me, mine pretty much stays at 400, then if I'm cutting something a little more detailed/small I bump it down. I've even turned it up to run 500 on large 6.5" numbers I was doing in HTV for some jerseys.
