Sublimation start up help
I’m thinking of dipping my toe into sublimation printing as the idea has appealed to me for a number of years…
I have a budget of between £1000 – £1500 depending on whether I go for an A4 or an A3 printer
I’m looking for advice on whether start-up packages are worth the money or would it better to source items individually?
Printer wise the Ricoh SG3110DN (A4) and the Ricoh SG7100DN (A3) crop up a lot in the starter packages using the Sawgrass ink….can anyone shed any light on whether these are the prefered option to an Epson or such like (it seems the Epsons are more prone to clogging if the printer isn’t used regularly ??) Will I be limiting myself too much going with A4 as opposed to A3
I think I understand the pitfalls of the cheaper heat presses…..uneven temperatures, uneven pressure and just general lack of build quality but are there any budget entry level machines that are worth considering? I think I would be happy buying a second hand heat press if anyone is looking to get rid ?? Are the multi presses worth it or is better to buy seperate flat press and mug press etc ??
At first I will be looking to supply a few organisations I already have contacts with ie Football League, Basketball league, Camera Club etc. I’m not sure about adding a vinyl cutter at the moment and if I do I realise my budget will have to increase but at the minute i just want to concentrate on the printing possibilities
Apologies for all the questions but any help or advice would be very much appreciated
