  1. I would bet most people here muddled through the discovery phase much like you are doing now. You did good...you got it hooked up, got it communicating with your computer, got it cutting the test pattern. Now you have learned to watch the size of your graphics....yes, sometimes it imports way too big and sometimes too small. Except for practice and patience.....you're just about there! Sounds like you are wanting to make shirts with HTV.......most important thing to remember: MIRROR your text/graphic. To this day I get so involved with the layout etc............... I forget to mirror! Now, before I push that cut button, I check one last time! Good Luck. Here's a suggestion for your first shirt! I made one for myself. Sue2
  2. I never tried pressing HTV with a hand iron.....I only use an iron to try & remove errant HTV spots or to correct a mistake if possible. When pressing HTV I want to see the texture of the fabric showing through in the final imprint.... I don't see that in your photos.
  3. Most of us here use a heat press....let me guess what MAY be your problem: Did you pre-heat the fabric to draw out moisture and flatten the fabric before laying on the HTV? "Household iron" just might be the problem....not hot enough with not enough constant pressure. The quality of your HTV could also cause poor results.
  4. I use CorelDraw as my go-to graphics program(easier than AI).....BUT my simple version of Corel X4 would not recognize your file. I had to open it in Illustrator and re-save. Then it would open in my Corel......edited it from there.
  5. Here it is....but you need to learn to do this yourself....it wasn't difficult. CraneOpr-2.svg
  6. The advantage of heat press over screen printing is the ability to cost effectively create in low quantities and individual designs/names.
  7. I would suggest you look into a package which includes a heat press....the kids would love designing their own t-shirts too!
  8. Thank you...just what I needed!
  9. I have a customer looking for fluorescent or neon lettering (yellow or green). Any suggestions on where to check for this? TIA Sue

    Thanks for the suggestions......to conserve time I checked those too and nothing came close enough. It's a door logo replacement that measures 27" wide...so I wanted it to match the other doors. I already traced it.....wasn't too time consuming.......it just takes patience!

    I use a Crop-A-Dile too........Does both 1/4" & 1/2" corners. Ran about $25
  15. I have a customer who wants to make t-shirts with his business logo for resale in his shop. He doesn't want to order a large quantity...just replace the shirts as they sell. His logo is full color so I am looking for a recommendation on where to get the full color heat press transfers. Thanks! Sue2
