Heat Press Machines

It all starts with a heat press

Heat pressing is a low investment, easy-to-learn decorating method. It has many advantages, including the ability to get creative with placement, decorate challenging fabrics, heat press on demand, and the flexibility to fulfil any size job.

Whether you’re just starting a T-shirt business, or looking to expand, a heat press is the most important investment you’ll make. There are many factors to consider when choosing the best press, like cost, quality, style, and efficiency. Stahls’ craft and hobby presses are more affordable, but still provide high-quality results when applying heat transfer vinyl, screen printed or digital transfers, twill, and more – putting an end to ruined garments for good.
