Iron-On Transfers? Use a Heat Press to Sell Shirts
If you are creating tshirts as a hobby with ink jet transfers, a hand iron is probably all you need. You can easily make the “I Love Grandma” shirt and it will be loved. But if you want to sell shirts, an investment in a quality heat press is a necessity. A heat press gives you the accurate time, temperature and pressure needed to press screen printed and digital transfers that last as long as the shirt itself.
A heat press is the only investment needed to offer professionally printed shirts, so you want to invest in the best press your budget allows. This low investment makes printing tshirts a great start up business. If you already do embroidery, sublimation, trophies or engraving—by just adding a heat press you can offer all kinds of apparel from uniforms to spirit wear.
So which heat press do we recommend? Hotronix® heat presses are known as the best in the business for their accuracy, reliability and durability. We offer a full line of sizes and styles to best fit your needs. The presses are supported with a tech staff that can help you through any situation. The upper platen has a non-stick coating to help you through the occasional “I put it on upside down”, making clean up easy. The press has been engineered for even pressure. Test the press you are considering for this feature by closing with a piece of paper at each corner. You shouldn’t be able to remove any of the four—if you can this is a sign of uneven pressure which will cause application problems.
Hotronix® heat presses are supported with a lifetime warranty on its heating element. So start your business today with a heat press. If purchased through Transfer Express®, we include a free plastisol transfer Marketing Kit, a $49 value!
