What’s In The Package?

Getting started in the custom apparel business or adding heat printing onto your existing decorating business requires just a heat press. However, to make your job go smoother and be able to make the most out of your time, accessories and tools are needed to increase your productivity.

If you’re looking at adding a heat press to your business, take advantage of package deals that combine a heat press with the tools you need to heat print a variety of items and market your custom t-shirt business. At Transfer Express, you have the option of choosing whether purchasing an individual heat press suites your business’ needs or whether a complete package is needed to get your business started and help your business grow.

interchangeable heat press platensQuick Change Platen – Your heat press comes with a specific size lower platen that matches the upper platen, whether it be a 16×16″ or 16×20″ size. Quick Change Platens allow you to interchange the lower platen to a smaller size platen to make it easier to heat print items like tote bags, youth and infant apparel, hat bills, etc. Smaller platens that come in the Starter Packages will make heat printing items other than t-shirts much easier.

heat press quick slip pad protector

Quick Slip Protectors –  This non-stick cover protects the silicon bottom pad on your Hotronix heat press from wear and tear of loading and unloading garments. It also allows the fabric of the apparel to slide on and off the heat press easier, increasing your productivity.

IMG_4992Heat Press Counter Caddie™ –  A Caddie is a stand for any Hotronix® Auto Open Clam that converts the heat press into a threadable heat press. Threading the garment or “dressing the platen” refers to opening up the shirt or bag and sliding it around the lower platen, leaving one of the sides of the shirt hanging off the platen. A Fusion heat press is made to be a threadable heat press, whereas the Auto Open Clams requires a Heat Press Caddie™ to make them threadable.
