If you are starting a business printing transfers onto T-shirts, your heat press will be important to your success. Your choice of heat press should be based on a variety of factors, such as style, features, and performance.
There are three types pf hear presses:Clamshell,Swinger,Draw presses.
Clamshell presses have a hinge between the upper and lower platens and open similar to a clamshell. The heated upper platen then closes down on the lower platen to provide the necessary pressure. While easy to use, the clamshell press does require that layout work be done directly under the heat source and may not be as well suited as other models when printing onto thicker garments, such as hooded sweatshirts.
Swinger, or swing-away, presses swing the upper platen away from the lower. This allows the user free access to the lower platen without having to reach under the heated upper platen, making garment arrangement and layout easier. Because the upper platen swings away, this type of press takes up more space than a clamshell.
Draw presses have a lower platen that pulls out toward the user. Layout can be done without the user reaching under the upper platen, but more workspace is required. This type of heat press machine involves a moveable work surface, requiring greater care to be taken to avoid designs shifting out of place before application.
