How To Choose Heat Transfer Machine


Based on our experience, normally customers will consider the below factors when choosing a suitable Heat Transfer Machine for their business:

  1. Types of Product being printed
    • Digital Mug Press
      Are you only doing mug printing business? If yes, digital mug press will be enough for you.
    • Digital Flat Heat Press
      If your heat transfer printing business is including printing of T-shirt , puzzle, cushion, ceramic tile and all kinds of "Flat" sublimation blanks, then digital flat heat press is your choice.
    • Combo Heat Press
      If you have started your gift printing business by printing all kinds of sublimation gift items as below, then we would suggest you to get a combo heat press.
      • "flat" items such as T-shirt, puzzle, cushion etc.
      • plate printing (diameter 11cm)
      • mug printing (11oz)

  2. Printing Size
    Are you printing only A4 size on T-shirt, Puzzle, Cushion etc? Or only printing mug (11oz)? If yes, then our heat transfer machine will definately meet your needs. But, if you wanted to print A3 or bigger size, or special cone shape of mugs, then we will have another heat transfer machine for you as well.

  3. Production Requirements
    Let us compare the "combo heat press" with "digital flat heat press + digital mug press"? When we should buy TWO machines?

    As we know, we can use combo heat press to print T-shirts, mugs & plate. However, these different items are only be printed in same cateogry at a time, which mean after we print a mug, we need to plug out the mug attachment and plug in another attachment like plate.

    If your business required "on the spot" printing, then this may not be suitable as it required longer production time. In this case, we would suggest you to get a digital flat heat press and another extra digital mug press to speed up your production flow. Time is Money. Agreed?

  4. Budget
    Well, we think you know this.

  5. Support
    In heat transfer printing business, continuing support is very important in making sure your business start right and grow fast.
    Just imagine the below situation:-
    • How to use and maintain my heat transfer machine?
    • Why my printing output is not as good as my competitors?
    • What happen if my heat transfer machine is not working?
    • Where can I get more sublimation blanks for my heat transfer machine?
