Looking for the best sublimation transfer machine that lets you create flawless, long-lasting imprints on t-shirts, caps, mugs, etc.? Today, we are going to share some frequently asked questions about the machine with you.
How big of a heat press do I need?
The ideal size of the heat press for you will depend on the amount of workspace available and the size of the garments you wish to print on.
If you have unlimited space, then you can go for a large model, such as the swing-away design. For limited space, however, you should confine yourself to models with space-saving design such as the clamshell.
As for the size of clothes you want to print on, you can get a 9 x 12-inch heat press for home use for printing on smaller cloth items, say your baby’s garments.
For printing clients, however, you’re not always sure what size they’ll bring in for printing, so you should go for models with large printing surfaces such as 15 x 15-inch or 16 x 20-inch.
The cost of a heat press machine varies from model to model. Generally, the price ranges from $300 all the way up to $3000, depending on a model’s manufacturer, printing performance, style, and list of features.
If you’re looking for a simple sublimation transfer machine for an absolute beginner, it should cost you approx. $200-$500. For an intermediate user, you’ll need to spend around $500-$1,000.
And if you’ve got money to spend, and you want the most advanced heat press machine, then you should get ready to cough out a thousand bucks or more (i.e., anything around $1000-$3000).
Do I need a heat press for vinyl?
