Why is it important to have a quality heat press for heat transfer?

It’s an effortless alley-oop to produce a great final product with commercial inkjet, laser, vinyl, and sublimation transfers when you use a high-quality heat press. Because the heat press determines the project’s final result, a high-quality system with calibrated temperature and pressure gauges and the ability to evenly apply 1,200 lbs. of downward force with little effort, for example, is crucial. This helps ensure that you’ll achieve the same consistency in product quality, transfer after transfer. 

To capably apply rhinestone and textile metallic overlays onto heat-pressed transfers, these same characteristics will also be realized. A high-quality system affords even heat distribution, accurate temperature and time settings, a uniform heat bed surface, and correct pressure settings.
