Everything is finally ready to go!

I signed up and placed a sample order with my artwork.

Site is easy to use, pricing seems equitable and the size of transfers is in no way limiting!

Small - 11" x 12.50"
Medium - 22.50" x 12.50"
Large - 22.50" x 25.00"

There is a base fee which I assume covers shipping / administration, and then the cost per transfer on top of that so if you can batch orders together it makes the most sense.

You can easily make an account to see pricing.

At the large size, if 3" x 3" or less for interior branding transfers which could be full color, the per unit cost is 17 cents not including base cost, but if the machine can produce small details for inside neck labels it could be really viable for that process which is what I'm most interested in this for.

Zane - Thanks for the review.

You can make smaller text in white. The samples I sent you have text size down to 6pt. The underbase on color text is  choked in about 2 pixels, so very small text can get lost.

I was just looking over the site, and signed up, and I'm looking forward to having an actual job to send so I can try it out. Though the art requirements don't state it, I'm assuming we need to flop the image, yes?

Don't mirror your image, send it how you want it produced, they will handle mirroring / ripping / printing

Same here, I noticed the all white sample is, well, all white, but the colored ones seem to have a pink adhesive, interesting...

The adhesive is the same. It turns clear when it is melted and picks up some of the ink color.  So on the all white sample, the adhesive looks white. On the color samples, it looks like it turns the color of the image. It looks pink because the magenta is picked up a little more then the other colors. Therefore, it looks a little pink even if the color on the front is black.  Don't worry, go ahead and press as instructed on the transfers...

I'm sure it's fine, I was just curious, I'll be checking them out today.
