Glad you got something out of it
I haven't dyed anything in a good while. I actually just sold all my Rit packets, pans, and containers here on the forum. Shipped em off today.
While I'd love to throw something elaborating how to go about it with a plotter, I don't have the time or patience. I still use my plotter, but I mainly only do stuff for friends now. No dyes, just stickers and t-shirts. The plotter's paid for itself, but dyes... man that takes a lot out of me. And for only a few extra bucks. It's a fine line of what to charge vs what people are willing to actually pay. I just came to the acceptance that it's really difficult to make it worth my time.
I donated probably about 10 times more than what I've pulled in for dye sales. Local tourneys I'd donate 2-5 discs. I'd get maybe one person interested in custom work and then never get an email back after the first inquiry.
Hell, I barely even play disc golf any more. 1) It's too damn hot. 2) I lost a lot of my will to even want to play, and 3) I've been putting a lot of time into fixing up my motorcycle to get ready to sell it. That's my new passion. Lol.
Gettin on that hog and cruiiiiiiisin.
