    Help with Scorching

    I am new to sublimation and I am having issues with scorching. Any help and insight is appreciated. I mostly get the scorching at the top of the shirt along the top edge of where the top of the transfer paper was, periodically I will get it on the side but not too often. I have tried to adjust the pressure but that just was a mess, and the temperature adjustment then makes the color not so vivid. Should I lower the temp but keep it in longer? Would that help? I have worked on this for days without success, just when I think I got it BOOM it messes us any help would be great! Refuse to sell anything until I have this down
  2. Does any one know what is causing these dots on my sublimation printer? I have only had it a month and was too busy trying to figure out times etc didn't notice them until now. I thought I was burning the polyester, but now I see it is on the paper

    Small Dots Printing on paper

    The lines are very consistent so I am thinking it is a roller issue. I have run nozzle check and also cleaned a few times just to make sure. I have been trying to figure it all all day. I bought the machine a month ago and saw the lines, but I was having other issues and actually thought I was burning the fabric, when I finally got the other issue resolved and watched a great beginners youtube video, I realized it was actually printing on the paper but was so fine I could not see it until we put it on fabric. Of course the seller is not helping at all, and I absolutely realize you get what you pay for. I thought I was safe as a friend purchased first and had no issues. I just wanted something very entry level and would move up if we made any money from it. Thank you for trying to help me, I truly appreciate it. Shelley

    Help with Scorching

    I did check the temp with an IR gun and we are pretty accurate there. Do you know off hand what a good time and temp is for a polyester shirt? Thank you for responding earlier!

    100% Polyester Tanks

    Thank you, I also use JiffyShirts and love them. Do you mind telling me which tanks you use? I have ordered a few and they feel more like athletic wear than the cotton feel I am looking for. I have used the tshirts from them that feel like cotton but have not found the tank. Any advice is appreciated, looking for 100% polyester so I can sublimate on it without fading post wash.

  12. I am wanting to add Koozie drink holders to my business and was wondering if any one is familiar with how to print on them. I have looked at two ways, pad printing and screen printing, any ideas?

    Koozie Drink Holders

    Thank you for your input. I need to use different color ones and I think it would be too much weeding with the HTV as my plan is to be making hundreds of these. I think I might need to learn screen printing =(

    Looking for Coral Vinyl

    Thank you to both of you. I will look at the 951 as it is not for a wall, it is for a sign and it is okay if it is permanent.

    Error Intializing Cutter

    How do I check my port settings? Could this happen, even though I was cutting and then just changed vinyl and then when I cut the next one it started giving me the message? Thank you for your help.

    Error Intializing Cutter

    I have a Creation PCUT that I have had for 3 years and use often. Last night in I cut several items and then went to cut another and I got the message "Can not open the output device. Error intializing cutter" when I have got this in the past I turned off my computer and restarted and everything was okay, this time I cannot get it to work. Any ideas or help would be appreciated, Thanks so much!

    Error Intializing Cutter

    I have plugged and unplugged several times, already, no luck. I wonder if there are any settings I am not aware of that may have got changed. This is the first time I have had this problem that won't correct.
  21. Hi All, I opened a little at home craft/sign business a couple of years ago with a Pcut and now think I can expand it a bit with shirts. I was wondering if someone or two or three... would post some pictures comparing what the shirts will look like with siser easy weed, chromablast, and SubLjet, as I am trying to figure out which will be best for me to invest in. I know the latter two will require a printer as well, and my plan was to buy the heat press that is on special this week. I am also aware of the subljet requiring polyester shirts versus the other two can use cotton or 50/50. Any other advice is appreciated. Thank you in advance. Shelley

  24. Just looking for some input, I want to buy a printer to do t-shirts, so far I have come up with two options the Ricoh GX e3300N or Epson 1100. The Epson comes with the larger external ink resevoirs. Also just to clarify "pigment ink" is what I would use for t-shirts right? Also what is your opinion on presses clam shell or swing away and why? Eventually I would like to do license plates, tags, coasters, and mouse pads (not sure if they will require different ink and another printer. Thank you for any input. Shelley

    First attempt at sandblast

    I bought my sandblaster last week and made etched pyrex pans for a auction our church had for a girls camp fundraiser and the next day made a set for a bridal shower gift. Great way to advertise, already have several people wanting them now. I was so busy I didn't get pictures, but now I have an excuse to make some for myself.
