Absolutely! There’s a big difference between printing 10-15 designs a day and 20 shirts an hour. Choosing a budget-friendly, auto pop-up clam is enough to handle a smaller workload. However, you will notice a significant difference in how hot the shop (and you) will get if you are doing 100-plus shirts a day, all day long. For mid to high production, you need to invest in a better heat press to keep the heat away from you.
When printing 100 shirts a day, you need a heat press with solid construction that can handle the workload. Additionally, the machine must be professionally made. The time, temperature, and pressure need to be accurate every time, and not all heat presses are created equal.
