I want to make some custom t-shirts, but not so many as to screen print. What is a good press to buy? i don't want to use a hand iron. Also, what are some good websites to learn about this?

We use Stahls Hotronix Hot One 16x20 Swingers at work, but we are looking into A Hix 16x20 Clamshell. Our Hot Ones have all broken down in the last year, but it could be because they are all 12+ years old. I also hear good things about the George Knioght heat presses.

Oops, Double Tap.

EDIT : I though my shop was one of the last Manual Press operations on earth by reading the trade mags, it's good to know there are other ink slingers out there still. :)

I use a Hix 15"x15" press. Do you plan on doing a lot of shirts, or just a few? I can make them for you if you want. Just drop me an IM.
