This list is a fairly complete list of all the parts and accessories a company would need to have a successful transfer business. This list is for a professional shop set-up that should be able to handle most jobs that are right for laser transfer. This would include light garments, dark garments, and hard surface items. Please note that as of the writing of this post, I do not have any stake in any of these companies and do NOT sell any of the products. These are just my opinions from past experience.
Over the years, one of the markets that have been most intriguing was the print on demand market. This market is exciting because it overcomes a natural barrier of purchase by changing the perceived value of a product and can take the cost factor nearly out of the equation. This market can be highly profitable, so here are some tips, tricks, and examples for you.
What is the printing on demand market? The print on demand market is when you travel to an event or specific location to be with potential customers and decorate apparel or other items on the spot. This can be as straightforward as having pre-done transfers so you can heat press the customers chosen transfer onto their chosen shirt size and color. It can also be as intricate as having online design tools and templates with the ability to do onsite photography to then digitally create items like photo panels, cell phone cases and again even apparel. Typically, this market is serviced by a heat press and transfers and/or digital decoration, noting occasionally, screen print garments are done.
