The Heat press is often a piece of equipment every new t-shirt printer usually gets when starting their new t-shirt printing business. It can be found cheap on websites such as eBay and you can get started right away by using heat transfer paper that is printed out of your inkjet printer. The heat press is great for so many reasons. You can use vinyl transfers to print on not only t-shirts but jerseys as well. A lot of youth sports teams use vinyl transfers on their jerseys.
If I had to pick between the two I would choose a screen printing press. On the fact that you have the opportunity to make more money with it. Unfortunately, every new entrepreneur is not starting out with a large budget and a lot of space. For Screen printing, you will need more equipment than just a screen printing press. You will need a flash, an exposure unit, a conveyor dryer, an inkjet computer, A washout booth, a screen dryer and so many more pieces of equipment.
As you can see both have their perks but from a startup entrepreneurs point of view you may find that the Heat Press will be more friendly for you. You can always add screen printing later down the line. You can also just us a t-shirt fulfillment company that will also print your shirts for you. You can spend time finding new customers.
