    Hey there!

    Just registered the other day. I have been doing Vinyl Lettering for a few years now as a hobby and then I found out about Thermoflex.

    bought my first heat press 2 years ago and started doing shirts for Softball teams.

    So now I do vinyl lettering and shirts. Well I really enjoy doing shirts, so I have purchased screenprinting equipment. Now I need to learn how to screenprint.
    I also have purchased a Okidata printer for Dye Sub and will be purchasing the toners hopefully in the next few weeks.

    My company name is Red-EyeGraphics.com, but I have taken on the name of TheJerseyPros.com since I am starting to do pretty much all mens softball teams and would like to expand my jersey offerings to more sports teams and a larger market.

    I also started doing small vinyl decals for guys softball bats. Alot of guys will use Address Labels or Colored tape to ID their bats. I started offereing Numbers, then Initials, and then they just kept getting more and more creative.
    So I named them and put up a website. Battoos, Tats For Bats.
    www.Battoos.net.

    I would love to find a printer/cutter to print small full color battoos as i get these requests all the time.


    Anyway...that's my story. I hope to one day have this as my only job, but for now it's my 2nd job working 7pm - 2am most nights of the week.

    welcome Red Eye!

    Does anyone in your area offer print/cut decal work wholesale?
    The only durable solutions I know of would require an incredible volume of battoos to make the payments, so I think finding a source that will give wholesale prices would be the best bet.

    (did you have to get a license to sell that FOX logo on your website? How much is one?)

    No actually I need to remove it. Not that the company has told me to, but I know I should remove it.

    I have found how expensive those machines are. I was hoping I could find a used one for a good deal eventually. I obviously don't need a large one.
    I would definilty raise the price I charge for them if I'm able to eventually get one. I woudl also put a minimum order aswell. But i don't know the cost to run one, to know what I could charge.

    Yeah I believe Fox Racing is owned by Disney or CAPS. Can not remember which but am curious to know what they charged. I know to sell Fox merchandise such as caps, shirts etc. it will cost you $10,000 at first.

    Second welcome to S101 Red Eye from TX.
