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.

heat press machine How much is a heat press for t-shirts?

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).

How About the Heat Transfer Machine & Tissue Paper



Heat transfer machines like this are used in many types of applications. You can use it for printing fabric rolls, creating signage, producing flags, working with cut part pieces for cut-and-sew apparel, and even for making pieces of ribbon or long straps.

The tissue paper keeps the sublimation ink from getting on to the belt that goes around the drum. The fabric you use will always be composed of polyester, a polyester blend, or some other kind of polyester-coated substrate. Roll-to-roll rotary machines typically come with three unwinds and three rewinds.

The three items listed above are loaded onto the unwind rods of the rotary press. They come together and go through the press, looping around the heated drum. This part of the process is called the “dwell time,” and this is where the sublimation process happens. The rewind rods then roll up the now-printed fabrics, the used transfer paper, and used tissue paper.
