We’re thinking about buying the minimum equipment necessary for printing on T-shirts, jumpers, etc.
Could you please give me some advice on which is the best technique and what the minimum necessary equipment would be, considering that it would be a small, occasional production operation.
If you’re not printing for third parties, but just for internal purposes, the number of prints will be quite low.
In this case I wouldn’t advise screen printing since it’s more appropriate for larger production runs, instead transfer printing might be a better option.
This is what you’d need:
– a good colour laser printer, with or without white
– a heatpress, even an inexpensive one
– an inexpensive cutting plotter
– materials, such as laser transfer paper for light and dark fabrics and possibly heat-sealed vinyl, in the colours you need, to be cut with the plotter.
