I am very interested in one of these ovens to do my mugs in, I spotted one at Watt Brothers in Hamilton for £39.99 and it's a 12 litre.

Has anyone got anything bad to say about them?

I started pre-pressing t-shirts to get rid of the creases, especially on cheaper t-shirts, this habit stayed with me and also was found out about moisture after a the first few months of pressing. The colour change is normal but goes back to normal when cooled down.

Max width is 584mm but I did not know it was restricted in length. I went to the properties of the print driver clicked advanced and found the cutting length to be 1600mm and I was unable to change it.

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

Does the roland camm-1 CX-24 cut longer than 5ft?

Hi,
I have a Roland Camm-1 CX-24 and I am using Corel Draw 11.
I want to cut some banner vinyl, the logo I want to cut is 2 ft wide and 7.5 long but when I go to print preview it, a quarter of the logo is missing.

Does the CX-24 cut longer than 5ft?

Hello Sconie, Yes all you need is your cutter, heat press and of course garment marking films to be printed on the clothing If you are going to get a heat press I would recommend getting a good one from the start and one that will last you a lifetime.

When you print out using sublimation inks the colour is not what you see on your monitor, it's usually darker. Use your heat press or mug press and transfer the image to the garment and you will see the colours come to life. I remember printing my first design and it was ‘shock horror’ when I saw th...
