      Hi Frederik,
      Below you’ll find a link that includes the heat press machines we recommend. These machines are best, they provide quality and they last!

      The transfers Cartess has recently made videos of regarding printing from a printer. These are much better than the ones you can purchase at local stores. In fact, these transfers can not be purchased at any store. Yes, these transfers hold up a lot better than the ones you can purchase from a local store and they will last a longer!

      However, if you want quality and want long lasting shirts have the designs screen printed onto the special release paper. We continue to stand by having your designs screen printed onto the transfer paper. I have many shirts that are over 3+ years old minus some bleach stains here and there but the shirts have held up well and they still look good!

      Cartess decided to look in this route for individuals that are not able to have their designs screen printed onto the special transfer paper due to the start up phases they are in and the cost that is involved. Again, we do recommend as soon as your business is able to pay to have your designs screen printed onto the special transfer paper, do it!

      See here, the link below….

      This is a great way for folks to get started with their tshirt business and provide descent shirts to thier customers verses selling shirts that were made by transfers purchased at an local store. You see, what happens when you use the transfers that are purchased at local stores. The customer only get a few wears out of the shirt and decides not to do business with you again because of the poor quality you offer.

      I can’t stress this enough this is a great way to get started for those we can not afford to have their designs screen printed. The over all best result would be; have the designs screen printed onto the special transfer paper instead of using a printer.

      What we understand the laser will be the better printer.

    I’ve been looking at your machines to start a T-Shirt shopin our small town. However I can’t find a software I like enough, suggestions?

  • Yushwa Muhammad says:

    Hello Cartess,

    I came across this site from your youtube video. I have started a T-shirt company, but now in the process of printing my own products to cut off the middle man and avoid service headaches. I’m thinking of purchasing the Fusion Hotronix as you recommended. I notice a price difference with the auto clam press. Is there a difference in QUALITY with the fusion and the auto clam press? Also is there a process to screen press my own labels for tagless shirts. Please reply asap. Thank you

    • Cartess Ross says:

      Hi Yushwa,

      There’s no difference as far as quality because they’re both Hotonix machines. The difference is one is an auto clam and the other is the swing away machine- it’s just a preference.

  • J.D. Washington says:

    What do you mean by life-time warranty on the heat element on all Stahl’s and a 1-year warranty on the Mighty Press brand heat press? I’m considering buying a 20-yr old Mighty Press from someone b/c of the brand and warranty, but will it have warranty? If I need something fixed by Stahl’s, is the serial number on the machine enough?

    • Judy Jolley says:

      Hi J.D.,
      I believe so, but I would double check with Stahl’s that you do not need purchase information. Their information is listed below. You can also engage in a “Live Chat” on their website here:

    • Judy Jolley says:

      Hi Nassar,
      Unfortunately we do not ship outside of the continental U.S due to the machine needing to be delivered on a freight truck. I apologize for the inconvenience.
