    Are you asking for recommendations for both press and printer? :-)

    Do you have a budget in mind?

    Yes I would be interested in your thoughts I was thinking of buying sawgrass 800 the only reason is that you get the software with the sawgrass but for heat presses I'm getting confused as there so many

    To a certain extent when starting up (unless you are printing hundreds of items a day) the heat press is more important for sublimation than the printer. Temperature needs to be accurate and consistent accross the entire platen, and you don't always get that with cheaper presses.

    Epsons will work out cheaper to buy and run. The Eco tank ET14000 is about half the price of the SG800 and will arguably give a better print. The guys at Ink Experts will be able to advise you further.

    Put the money you save towards a Pressmech A3 heatrpress from Nova Chrome, at just over £1000. Slightly larger than you want at 38 x 50 but the quality is second to none and the size will be good for t-shirts.

    Just realised this post was made in the 'Forum info' section, I'll move it into a different category for better exposure.
