Testing Inkjet Transfer Paper: Part 1

Finally… I think I’ve found some decent transfer paper that you can use from your home printer and start-up your t-shirt business on the low-low. In the video below, I’m testing it out live and in this 3-part series, you’ll see firsthand how this inkjet transfer paper holds up after multiple washes.

There’s a lot of transfer paper out there… Some just absolutely suck and others have come a long way from what they used to be. I still highly recommend custom screen printed transfers, but the transfers printed from inkjet and laser printers, is an affordable alternative to getting started.

    Thanks for the kind words Alicia 🙂

    I’m not using the ones from Coastal Business — in the follow-up video that’ll go online in a day or two, I’ll talk more about that… Primarily wanted to test it first before saying anything.

    The program I had on my computer was Fireworks CS5 (Adobe). I’m not a real graphic designer — I know just enough to be dangerous — but that was something I could quickly put together on my own for demonstration purposes for this video.

  • Darren says:

    Cartess – thanks for doing what you do, I like many who follow you really appreciate the information you pass on.

    Alicia – Fireworks is a good program. There is also Corel Draw which to me is probably better as far as producing graphic quality, but its what I use more of. Photo Shop is great as well. There is a big learning curve to each of these programs so unless your familiar with graphics programs you may want to go to some graphic sites that offer free tutorials on each of them, their all over the internet.

    Cartess – again thank you. I love your training modules and all your videos. Keep up the great work and God Bless!

    Awesome!

    That will be answered in video 3. The video will be up later this evening.

    We have a source list available for purchase. The source list includes various companies to purchase custom, and pre-made transfers. As well as blank t-shirts at wholesale cost.

    The price for custom transfers will be determined by the amount of colors you have in your design. If you are on a tight budget then I would recommend no more than 2 colors in the design. The more colors in the design the more it will cost to have the designs screen printed onto the release paper.

    If you would, please click the link below to purchase the source list.

    Thank you for your kind words, Anthony!

  • Cartess Ross says:

    Well over 6 figures… that’s profit. I currently spend about $1.50 on the higher end quality tees.

  • Cartess Ross says:

    The ink used on that print came from the starter ink that came with the printer. Now, I don’t use this process so I’m new to it as well, but from the ‘chatter’ in the market place, people tend to say pigmented inks work best.

  • Cartess Ross says:

    Our course outlines many more, but here are two reputable sources: http://www.BroderBros.com and http://www.TSCapparel.com

  • […] transfers via Epson WF-7710, i'm also planing to buy this model. You can see the useful video here: Testing Inkjet Transfer Paper: Part 1 Also you can find the information regarding suports this model transfer print here: EPSON […]

  • Cartess Ross says:

    You could, but that would require you to know how to use photoshop or similar software. That area is more like graphic/software. Which is not something we teach. Our primary focus is assisting those how to start their own tshirt business. You may want to try looking on youtube, or consider taking some local workshops for an task like that.

  • EDGAR says:

    Do I have to mirror printing always?
    How do I do that in order to apply those heat transfer papers from inkjet printers?

    • Cartess Ross says:

      Without knowing what software or printer you’re using, I can’t really help. YOu should see an option to do that…

  • Supreme da god says:

    Hey this is me Supreme agin i notice that you have a heat transfer paper that can be used in a home computer how much is this per sheet and will this be on the resource list ..that your selling???

  • Demontrey Cunningham says:

    What size heat press machine do u use for ur shirts? And is silk screen better than heat press?

    • kimross says:

      Hi Demontrey,

      We recommend using at least an 16×20 heat press. The 16×20 heat press will allow for room for larger items that will need to be printed. Using the heat press is a less of a messier process and cheaper. You still receive the same end result.

  • Kami Roberts says:

    You know what’s kind of funny. I realized that I had just purchased, about a two weeks ago, the exact same printer prior to seeing this. Also got the optional CIS kit for it. The paper I requested a sample of recently falls into the same price range as the paper you’ve got in your link. We’re going to do a test run on it before we commit to it. Feels good, like we’re off to a good start.

  • Michael says:

    Your videos are very inspirational.

    Thanks for all you do!

  • Robert Jackson says:

    What type of ink were you using for the transfers?

  • muffy says:

    Cortess, I can not find the link that takes me to stock transfers that you use. Sorry it may be right in front of my face. At this point I want to do what you do….not wanting to reinvent the wheel when what you do works so well. Love my sample shirt incredibly impressed!! thank you

      Hi Bonny,

      I apologize, we do not ship to India. The price on the Epson WF-7010 will vary, I believe we paid $195. You may try looking on line for sellers who offer the printer and who will ship to India.

      • Hans Maerker says:

        Hi Cartress,
        I have the problem that I live and work in Europe. Do you know any source that offers supply here in Europe? It’s not only the material, but the Tshirt printer itself. That’s actually the biggest issue. Here in Europe, we use 220/240 Volts and 50 Hertz.
        Even if I would be willing to get one of those printers (or heat presses) shipped from the States, those tools would be useless here with their settings of 115 Volts and 60 Hertz.
        Thanks for your help,
        Hans

        • kimross says:

          Hi Hans,
          Have you tried looking on Ebay for companies that are based in your country or who may offer what you need? Try looking on Amazon and craigslist for areas near you as well.

  • Aneurin says:

    Hans
    Have you looked into buying a transformer (Step up or down) that will work fine with the machines from the US?

  • steve gibson says:

    Hi Cartess
    I cannot view the training video because of some privacy policy,i thought the problem was with my phone at first because it did not support the Plug-In, but now that i am using the desk top it is not what i had thought. Do i have to install VIMEO before. Please Advise

    • Cartess Ross says:

      This is a YouTube video on this page… You should be able to see it without having to install anything…

  • anthony says:

    what website can I go to for a fair priced inkjet printer paper for heat press dark color shirts?

    • Hi Anthony,
      We recommend screen printed transfers. We do not recommend printing from a printer just for the sake of quality. You want to be in business selling products that will allow people to buy from you over and over again; as well as refer others to you. Sadly, printing from a printer will not allow you to do so.

      Once you have your designs created; you can send the digital files of the designs to transfer companies. They can take your design and screen printed directly onto the special release paper. There are no printers involved in this process. All the designs are printed by screen printing equipment. Once the designs have been screen printed onto the special release paper instead of directly on shirts. They’ll send you the transfers; which you’ll press directly onto the shirts using the heat press machine you’ve purchased.

      The cost of having designs printed will vary; it depends on the amount of colors you have in the design. The more colors you have in the design the more it will cost. If you’re starting with a limited budget; we recommend no more than 2 colors.
      Another fact in cost of getting the designs screen printed will be determined by the amount of transfers you have printed. The less you have printed the more you’ll pay. The more you have printed the cost to have the transfers printed, cost drops.

      We have a source list available for purchase. The source list includes various companies to purchase custom, and pre-made transfers from a list of transfer vendors as well as vendors to purchase blank shirts.

      The price for custom transfers will be determined by the amount of colors you have in your design. If you are on a tight budget then I would recommend no more than 2 colors in the design. The more colors in the design the more it will cost to have the designs screen printed onto the release paper.

      If you would, please click the link below to purchase the source list.
      https://www.tshirtriches.com/where-to-get-custom-t-shirt-transfers/

      Or you can locate a local screen printer in your area to screen printed directly onto blank shirts you supply the screen printer to print on. It’s actually cheaper to purchase your own shirts and give to the screen printer. The price once again will be determined by the amount of colors in the design and how many shirts you have printed. You’ll need to locate a local screen printer in your area to determine prices.

      We have created a training course that will walk you through the entire process from beginning to end. We’ve done all the hard work for you. All you have to do is take advantage of the blueprint we’ll provide, learn the material and apply it towards your business. This isn’t an easy task, this isn’t some get rich quick scam and it will require a lot of hard work if you expect to receive any type of results. Honestly, your results depend on you.
