    I presume you are asking about the laser cut Aloha. No, no sewing! I am using permanent heat pressed adhesive.

    I own an older Anajet. I don't use white ink- just not worth the hassle. I mainly use it spring and summer. You can do full color with transfers (I use F&M Expressions for my dark shirts). You might consider dye sub transfers (I use S&K Manufacturing) but that only works on white/light colored polyester (you can put black on a red but not red on black). Just some options.

    I only sell to customers who come to me. Word of mouth works surprisingly well here in Kona. I have groups of customers that are all related. I am a terrible salesman! Really terrible - except when they come to me, then I can wax on forever!
    I love the cutout in the picture.
    I'm not sure I understand what type of material you are using. Is it patterned vinyl? Is it a fabric material that comes with vinyl adhesive on the back or are you adding adhesive to the back of the material. Sorry if I'm missing the obvious!

    I can use just about any material- cotton, poly, blends, but not nylon. The material in the picture is 100% cotton and it is a wild jungle print. I use the permanent heat press adhesive from Twill USA. I heat press it on the back of the material first, then laser cut. This adh is kind of heavy so it might not work to use it with very thin materials or garments. I'd be happy to send anyone some samples. Private message me.

    I have an Anajet. I don't do a lot throughout the year but quite a bit each spring. In fact I'm getting ready to ramp up. I do senior t-shirts for some local schools. I have used the white ink but it is just too much of a headache to drain the lines and print head. Full color on white/lights is great. I use ash for the senior tees. I do have the first generation printer and I know they've come out with at least two new versions. Epson has also come out with a printer; they do make the print heads. The other option is to get full color printed vinyl.
