Whether you are a t-shirt transfer entrepreneur for fun or for business, deal in small orders or large, a heat press machine is a great investment. Having the option to print on demand instead of outsourcing your labour is a powerful approach that will work to your advantage.
How does a heat press machine work?
A heat press is a machine that contains an electronically heated metal surface, and it works similarly to an iron that you would use to press your clothes. The difference is that you are working with more pressure, a larger heating surface, and a specific temperature. The heated metal surface is then lowered onto the garment (and the transfer paper with your design on it), and is locked down for a certain amount of time to allow the garment and design to fuse together.
There are a few things to keep in mind when you use your heat press machine: place it on a solid surface and keep it out of reach of children. You should also try to have access to the press from all sides. If possible, have a ceiling fan or portable fan in the room with you while you are using it, as the heat can really warm up your room.
Benefits of a heat press transfer machine
Using a heat press transfer machine will save you money, time and hassle. Even someone with no prior experience will be able to quickly learn how to use a heat press machine. They are relatively inexpensive and you can extend your printing from tshirts to caps, mugs, tote bags and more. The size of the machine is also considerably smaller than that of a large format computer printer, so you can place it anywhere in your home without obstructing anyone.
