  1. I would bet most people here muddled through the discovery phase much like you are doing now. You did 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'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 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. 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
  9. I have a customer looking for fluorescent or neon lettering (yellow or green). Any suggestions on where to check for this? TIA Sue
  10. Thank you...just what I needed!

    Cutting script text

    Depending on what graphic programs you're using, you need to combine or weld the text before cutting. Make a copy first as you usually cannot "unweld". AND I usually look at the spacing before I weld the text and adjust any letters that are not spaced well. Sue2

    Should I get a heat press?

    If you can manage it, get a 16 x 20". They allow for the larger imprint sizes... Frequently I am pressing 2X & 3X shirts...... to look right you need to enlarge the logo/graphic to fill the shirt. A 16" x 20" press can usually handle it in one pressing. Sue2
  19. Makes you feel real secure...................

    Need font help please

    You will have to fill-in/touch up the letters for any font recognition program to be of help.

    Rush vintage?

    Find My Font is well worth purchasing! Saves lots of time searching. It even looks in the fonts on your computer to see if you have it already installed.

    I know it's probably something easy...

    Recreate it as best you can with whichever font is the closest. We are probably over-thinking this....our customers rarely notice the slight differences we agonize over! LOL.
