Are you looking to start a t-shirt business from home? You’re not alone. Every day we see more and more people learn how to use a heat press and heat transfers to print and sell shirts. Think about the amazing custom t-shirt you just bought online. Guess what? It was probably made with a heat press and some type of heat transfer.

This scenario is even more probable if you ordered it online for immediate delivery. For example,  think of the shirts you see online, with popular sayings, funny memes or political statements. No one knows what’s going to be popular so manufacturers don’t want to waste money printing huge numbers of shirts that won’t sell. Instead, they create several different options and wait for orders. How do they make the shirts as orders come in?

Made On Demand

Oftentimes, custom shirts you buy online are “made on demand.” This means they are created just for you after ordering. Heat printing makes it possible to print just one custom shirt and sell it at a profit. But in fact, you can also make 10, 20, 100, or 500 custom shirts with heat printing. This video will show you how, using a heat press and heat transfers.
