My entire business was started with using a manual clam heat press like this… You don’t have to start out with the most expensive Hotronix Fusion Heat Press, this manual clam works just as great. We’ve pressed tens of thousands of t-shirts using a basic setup just like this.

The MAXX Clam heat press is still made by Hotronix… It’s a great quality machine and the warranty is amazing. You get a life-time warranty on the heating element.

If anything is going to go bad on a quality heat press, it’s going to be that heating element… If you buy another brand, and the heating element goes out, you gotta pay for it. Good luck tracking down the company that made it — many of these machines are made in China and they’re cheap — Hotronix is made right here in America.

These guys hot made their machines right! Watch the demo below:
