Hi and thank you

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say hi to all. Was learning a lot from my uncle for the past 2 years  before he got sick and passed away this year. He was into making stencils for selling painted wood craft signs and single layer decals he made using a pcut plotter i think with sure cuts 4 . But it was starting to have issues and then he passed .I guess you can call it a going away gift but he had bought me a new titan 2 sometime last year which was hidden away until my aunt found it with my name on it in the garage and i just opened it up last week and got it setup and did a few test cuts and so far its working great.I am only looking into making decals as he did but for my friends for now.

Now you need a good heat press!  T-shirts are REALLY fun! :D

Welcome aboard Bobby, glad to have you here.

Sorry for your uncle's passing.  He must have seen the ability in you to have gotten the new cutter for you!

Are you looking to expand into t-shirt, caps, koozies, etc?

It's a personal preference for vinyl choice - a good percentage use Oracal 751 or Oracal 651.

As far as machines go - think about what you're wanting to cut. What size (large for tracking, and small for intricate detail), do you need it to contour cut, do you need it to print, etc. When you figure out the size and need, buy the buy the best cutter  you're comfortable shelling out money for.

siser ezweed for me on most of my htv projects and if funds are not limited then hotronix all the way!  mighty press is a close second

As above...Siser EasyWeed is by far the easiest HTV to deal with and a good "feel".

I was lucky, many years ago I found a used Hotronix 16 x 20 heat press & Cap Press locally...

Then, someone on this forum was going out of business and selling their stock of HTV.

What a bounty!  Multitude of colors and brands.... I haven't had to buy anything but black & white

for quite a while.
