Advancing Your Custom Apparel Business: Equipment Choices that Made the Difference

Advancing Your Custom Apparel Business: Equipment Choices that Made the Difference

In the dynamic world of custom apparel, the right equipment can make all the difference. At the recent White Toner Expo, seasoned industry professionals revealed the machinery that transformed their businesses. Their insights may just help you make your next big equipment decision.

The iColor Series – A Game-Changer

“Once I got my eye color, I got the iColor 550, I completely took off from there. I made a ton of content on the iColor. There's so much success because, beyond T-shirts, the things you can do with an iColor are amazing.”

Heat Press & Vinyls – The Black and White Era

“The heat press and heat transfer vinyls... did a lot of black and white prints. Then, as I learned about heat transfers and DTF, I started to incorporate the full-color images and logos and just went from there.”

Sublimation and White Toner – New Horizons

“I've been doing sublimation for three years now. White toner opens up a whole new set of possibilities and opportunities. I have the iColor 800. It's a huge investment, but I don't regret any of it.”

The Journey from Craft to Business

“My wife is a crafter, and I saw what she was doing. The first machine I ever bought was a Cameo. We did a lot of vinyl. So, we purchased the iColor 560, an option that would save a lot of time and increase our production.”

The Heat Press Epiphany

“When I got started printing, I had access to a full screen print shop. The second that I got a heat press, I realized it was the gateway drug to this industry. It's where you learn so much that you can scale in a million different directions. At the end of the day, it's going to come down to what you want to do and what you enjoy.”
