How to Custom Print Shoes with Transfers
One of the best features of the Hotronix® heat presses is the availability of interchangeable platens. We have just added a new platen that will allow you to heat press shoes! The new shoe platen can be added to the Maxx®, Auto Clam or FUSION® to decorate sneakers, cleats and even slippers.
Two shoes can be decorated at one time, making this a simple and easy add on sale. You can use screen printed transfers or rhinestone transfers to custom decorate your shoes. All of our heat applied transfers will work on canvas shoes.
When ordering your screen printed transfers, we can add a row of small designs that will fit perfectly on shoes. For just a few cents more, you can add sales and make more money. You can press up to a 2” x 4” image on many adult and children’s shoes with the shoe platen. Tip – measure the print area on the shoe before ordering; many have decorative seams that you may need to work around.
Some custom printed shoe ideas are the school mascot and name for school sales, or the team name for sport’s teams. What cheerleading or dance team wouldn’t want to add a little sparkle to their shoes with their group’s name? You can use glitter ink or rhinestones!
To decorate your shoes:
I was just thinking of buying a hat press from you. Would I be able to press shoes with any of the hat press platens? This looks like something I would like to add to my product line, but can’t buy two new heat presses.
