How to Choose a Heat Press

When you are first starting your own t-shirt business and have decided to use a heat press and custom heat applied transfers to print your shirts, the next step is to decide which is the best heat press to get for your business.

There are a lot of heat presses out on the market. Like shopping for most products, there is a wide range of prices, quality, and features. The same holds true for heat presses. And like most products, “you get what you pay for”.

The take-away?

If you are starting a t-shirt business, a heat press is going to be your primary piece of equipment, if not your only piece of equipment.

Since it is all you need, you want to make sure you get a heat press that you can depend and rely on. Not all t-shirt presses are created equally – literally.

Cheaper presses are cheaper for a reason. They are made using inferior components and also using shortcuts.

This will have a direct impact on the ability to apply transfers correctly and consistently. This single piece of equipment can almost cause you to succeed or fail in your t-shirt business.

Since it is so critical to get this right, we put together this guide on how to choose a heat press that is right for your business, whether it is a small business or not.
