Please find some links and notes from the 2 Regular Guys Podcast from August 16th, 2013, so you can get more details on some of the items we discussed. This show we again covered some of the common heat press options available, based on Aaron’s article in A&E Magazine (Page 72).
More Heat Press Options:
1) Last time we briefly covered Clamshell and swing away presses. We also touched on quality a bit.
2) Let’s talk a little about the manual release and the auto release options.
Auto release is typically $150 to $200 more expensive
Good for garments because you can press something and walk away
Auto can cause issues for sublimators as the auto release tends to be a bit jarring and can cause ghosting if the transfer paper is not secured well.
3) Mid Cycle releasing can be difficult on some presses. Need to make sure you know if it is possible to release an auto mid cycle.
