   The first thing you should consider is the size of the machine. You have to make sure what are you producing and what do you plan to produce. For example, if you just want to print some little things like t-shirt, pillow, bags, you can choose a flatbed heat press machine. But if you are going to print the large items, you’d better choose the roller heat press machine.

   Then the consistent heat is also an issue you should take into consideration. Heat presses need to be heated to about 400 degrees fahrenheit for sublimation inks to transfer from the paper to the polymer fibers. This transfer has to be smooth and even for the process to work properly and for the image transfer to be consistent from one pressing to the next.

   Consistent pressure is another factor which need consider. A quality heat press has a heavy platen that generates enough weighted-pressure for a clean heat transfer without any cold spots.

   Finally, you should pay attention to the timer. Having a timer on your heat press that times each pressing and alerts users to when it’s completed is a majorly useful feature on both digital and analog models for ensuring consistency.
