Your transfer is only as good as your heat press…
You could have the perfect, personalized sublimation, heat transfer, or vinyl design for your customer, but if you don’t have a good, quality heat press your finished project might not live up to their expectations.
A high-quality heat press will ensure you’re getting even temperature and pressure across your entire transfer. The right press will give you transfer results that are consistent and repeatable, saving you time and money from having to redo transfers that were ruined by heat platen cold spots or light pressure zones.
Two of the most popular types of heat presses are swing aways and clamshells. On a swing away press, the top can swing completely away from the bottom part, giving consistent pressure while a clamshell opens up and down, similar to a clamshell.
