Heat Presses

Perfect Control for Laser Image Transfer (LIT) and Sublimation Projects

Heat Presses


What Can I Use a Heat Press For?
Both LIT and Sublimation processes require a heat press to transfer images from the transfer media to the item to be printed. Heat presses can also be used for applying heat applied media. Close control of temperature, pressure and time is needed for high quality, predictable results. All our heat presses feature built-in timers, temperature control and pressure adjustment.

Which Heat Press Should I Choose?
For those on a budget the A4 Pink Press will press most flat items and is also relatively light, making it the most portable of the flat-bed heat presses.

The multi-functional swing press can be used for pressing flat items, and with the addition of the optional attachments, can also be used for caps and plates. However, Laser Image Transfer is demanding in terms of accurate, even pressure so the multi-functional swing press is not suitable for this purpose. It is, however, perfectly O.K. for use with sublimation and heat-applied media.

The heavily engineered A3+ swing presses are for the more demanding user, or simply those requiring to print onto thicker items and/or to transfer metallic foil to fabrics. There are two versions of these swing presses – the standard one and the ‘deep’ one. The ‘deep’ one will press flat items up to 25mm thick and so is particularly useful for applying images to thick pieces of wood.

Printed mugs are a popular choice for students running business and enterprise projects. We supply two mug presses, a single and a double. The double one is ideal for faster production. Finally, if you want to press images onto caps, a cap press will be needed. The cap press which we supply can also be used for pockets.
