    First Mug Sub

    first mug to sub with new press. I need to learn Corel and how to set this press. Got it from USC and i think it did good but setting the time and temp was/is tricky. I thought i set it to 370 F as suggested and time. While waiting for it to heat up i noticed that it stopped at 250 and went into a holding pattern. It would loose heat then reheat. I also DID have a blank mug in it as recommended. SO i went ahead and pushed the start button to see what it would do. It heated on up and immediately while heating began the count down. When it got to the correct temp i replaced mugs and began the count again. Any ideas

    yea, i like the MarkandGraham one also. Also check out the font= HEX monogram on dafont. That is more manly.
  4. got a request to print artwork for tshirts. I am not applying, just printing. I have an excell worksheet that helps me calculate cost but for one 11 x 17 print it says approx. $4... . That is ink = $3.75..and paper. = about .25 pc. . Really ? $3.. for one print. for ink. SO the question is: how do I calculate actual ink usage per sheet. I know- you can't define how much ink is used actually but surely someone in the world has measured somehow ? Since i have not done any business subbing, this is new. The request comes from a friend who screen prints and maybe the order is lots of colors so he is thinking subbing. I didn't ask, i just needed to learn pricing anyway. This may open up the door to do his subbing if the price is reasonable but about $4. per sheet @ 80 sheets won't get the job. Thanks guys/gals for all your help. I am using the Epson 7610 with refillable carts. They are practically unused/new .

    pricing breakdown/sublimation

    OWJones - REALLY 300 sheets. ?? Wow, i called Cobra and was told 30 . Maybe she misunderstood what i asked. !!!! 30 seemed kinda low to me . Its not even a total sheet coverage. Just 2 images. - 1 around 8x10 and another pocket size.

    Mug sublimation question

    what price do you guys do for a mug. People keep telling me that they can get them at places like Sams, etc so the price i would ask would be more.

    Heat Press question

    mine isn't glued down either. i am liking the cover idea since everything seems to grab the pad and not slide. I would like the sliding better i think. It makes me crazy

    Madhattergraphix, nothing faded onto the handles . Actually there is about 1/2 inch fade from each side of the handle since the press closes to the handle. (make sense?)

    LARGE cut for wall

    ok, if someone has time to waste, can you show me a screenshot of how you would layout a tree like the one shown -or any extra large tree- to be able to cut. I got it that you would have to piece together but my mind is not grasping how to lay it out. I suppose i would need to know how to cut pieces apart to lay it out. Maybe that is my real question. I am using SCAL- i like SCAL - so is there a knife tool i hear people talk about in other programs to just slice through a limb.? Then i suppose i would move it to empty space to maximize my vinyl. I am using a SC cutter 24" wide.

    color issue

    ok, I am making flags where the base image is printed on then I add the extras in vinyl. When I put the extra image -name,etc- on top of the printed image in SCAL the images below show thru the colors. Even my darkest colors can be seen through. Any adjustments out there that I need to make for this to be fixed. I can't post a mockup with it being see through.
