So, you’re looking for a heat press? Now, I’m not going to say that I have tested out every single heat press that there is to try and that this one is the best one out there because I haven’t and it simply wouldn’t be true. But, what I can do is tell you about all the research that I’ve done in the last few months and what it took me to finally take the plunge and get one of these bad boys.
So, I compared the easy press and a heat press, and questioned in all the groups weighing my options for what seems like eternity because I just couldn’t commit. I mean, there’s not really anywhere that I could have gone in store to try one out. So I read all the reviews and had decided that I wanted to go with the heat press over the easy press for 3 main reasons
Reason 1- The price point I kept thinking that because the easy press was Cricut brand that it was superior for whatever reason because of the brand name and all. While I do love the cricket brand and everything it stands for I just couldn’t shell out $109 for a tiny 6×7 Easypress 2, $159 for a 9×9 or $200 for a 10×12 when I could get a bigger press at around the same price point WITH a ton of extras.
Reason 2- with the Easypress for that 30 seconds that to your design needs to be pressed to your item YOU have to supply the pressure. I don’t know about you but that just seems exhausting. With a heat press you can clamp it down and walk away for 30 seconds to get your next piece ready.
Reason 3- all of the extras! This heat press comes with the big plate that is 12“ x 15“, a mug press, two plate presses and a hat press, I have yet to use these I mainly keep the 12 x 15 press on there and use it almost every day. But I love that I got all these extras, Because that’s crafters are always learning and mastering our craft so I love that I’m keeping my options open.
This heat press can also be used with sublimation transfers, which is using a special printer with a type of gas Ink that heats your design straight on. Think- family picture mugs etc
The temperature on this thing ranges from 32° to 480, and the timer can be set from 0 to 999 seconds not that you’ll ever need to go that long. This thing remembers your last settings so you don’t have to reset the temperature and time every time you turn it on which saves a lot of time!
It also has a full 360° rotation so you can swing the arm left or right.
It is very easy to switch out the pieces all you need is a Phillips screwdriver, it comes with a little tool that can be used as well if you don’t have one.
You can use this for a wide range of things like T-shirts, hats, koosies, baby onesies, mugs, plates as well as different materials like cotton, nylon, polyester and more.
