HEAT PRESS MACHINE 101:

Everything You Need to Know About Heat Presses and How to Find a Deal

What is a heat press?

A heat press is a machine that operates pretty much like an iron. A typical heat press machine can heat up to as much as 450 degrees Fahrenheit, and it’s purpose is to apply heat and pressure onto a special type of release paper that has artwork on it.


With the combination of heat and pressure, the design is transferred from the release paper and onto various types of printable items like t-shirts, canvas tote backs, hoodies, sweatshirts, etc…


What are the Various Types of Heat Press Machines


There are all types of heat press machines available and each one serves a different function. In the descriptions and links below, you’ll see how these machines can benefit you when trying to decide which heat press is best suited for your needs.


Clamshell Heat Press Machines — They call these ‘clam-shells’ because they open up in a manner that a clam shell does. There is a manual clam heat press and there is an automatic open clam press as well. The manual press operates like the one shown in the video below where you have to manually open and close the press.

Automatic Open Heat Press -- It opens up automatically based on the timer you set. These machines have a hinge between the upper platen (the heating element) and the lower platen (the part where the garment lays). See it in action by playing the video below:

Swinger and Draw Heat Press -- On these type of heat press machines the upper platen (the heating element) swings away from the lower platen (the part where the garment lays). Since the heating element swings away, you're free to move and manipulate your garments on the lower platen without fear of getting burned.


Concerning a 'draw heat press', you have a lower platen that pulls out towards you. Laying out your garments can be done without the user reaching under the upper heated platen. This type of heat press machine involves a moveable work surface, requiring greater care to be taken to avoid designs shifting out of place before application.

Everything You Need to Know About Buying a New or Used T Shirt Heat Press


Should I buy a new t-shirt press??? Or should I purchase a used heat press? And that's what we're going to discuss on this page. If you're just getting started in the business and you're strapped for cash, then obviously, I'd suggest you buy used.


"Where can you find new or used heat press machines for sale?"


I'm glad you asked...

  • Used Heat Press Machines - You can find these on websites like eBay or Craigslist. Search for brands like Hix, GeoKnight or Hotronix. I'd stay away from the cheap models made in China that sale for $200-$400. These are cheap and usually breakdown quite easily. Doesn't make sense to spend a few hundred dollars and then turnaround and buy another machine 6-months later because the cheap one broke. Wait and save your money and get what you need.

  • New Heat Press Machines: The ones sold on Amazon.com are usually the cheap knock-offs made in China. The quality aren't the greatest, but if you're strapped and simply need to start, then get one. As an authorized dealer for Hotronix, we can sell you the Hotronix brand heat press machines. All dealers are required to sell the Hotronix brand at the same price -- whether you buy from me, or someone else, the price is the same.

MY HEAT PRESS RECOMMENDATIONS


If you have a decent sized budget, I'd recommend you starting off with a 16x20 heat press machine -- although many people start with a 15x15 size press. It's a preference I suppose. I like the larger machine for larger prints, but most prints will work with 15x15.


I'm currently using the Hotronix Fusion machine and this machine is awesome. I grew into the Fusion -- I didn't start here. I had the typical manual clam presses for over a decade. Hotronix makes the best machine on the market with a very STRONG guarantee. It's an American made product and the quality is absolutely amazing. No other machine compares to this brand.


My Hotronix Heat Press Machine Recommendations

  1. Hotronix's The MAXX Clam Heat Press (16x20 or 15x15)
  2. Hotronix Fusion Heat Press (only comes in 16x20)
  3. Hotronix Auto Open Clam Heat Press (16x20 or 15x15)

*Disclosure: I am an authorized distributor for Hotronix. I believe they have the best machines on the planet. Their machines are made in America and the quality and craftsmanship is absolutely amazing. By far, their machines are the best and after you see them, I'm sure you'll agree!
