What is a heat press?
A heat press is a device that uses heat and pressure to transfer a design from a special film or vinyl onto another surface, such as a fabric, metal, wood, or glass. A heat press can be used to create customised products, like clothes, mugs, signs, and other accessories. There are different types of heat presses, depending on the shape and size of the surface to be printed on. Some common types are clamshell, swing-away, draw, and vacuum (which we will expand upon further down).
A heat press works by heating the upper platen, which is the part that comes in contact with the design. The lower platen, which holds the surface to be printed on, is either fixed or movable. The user places the design on the surface, aligns it with the upper platen, and closes the heat press flat. The heat and pressure are applied for a specific amount of time, depending on the type of design and surface. The user then separates the platen presses from one another and removes the design paper or vinyl, leaving the design permanently imprinted on the surface.
