    Questions and Answers

    I’m on a tight budget, should I spend extra to get one of the Hotronix® heat presses?

    A heat press is the only investment needed to get started in the custom apparel printing business and the key to your success. We recommend getting the best heat press your budget allows.

    Should the heat press be locked down while removing moisture or can you just hold the press down?

    The heat press does not need to be locked down, but applying pressure does help to remove wrinkles. As long as there is heat being applied to the garment the moisture will be removed.

    Can I apply over a seam?

    Seams can cause application problems due to uneven pressure. Some 6-panel hats have inwardly sewn seams for easier application. We suggest testing application over a seam prior to placing your order.

    Is it important to use the correct pressure when applying designs to garments?

    The key to proper application is the correct time, temperature and pressure for the material you are heat applying. If you have too much pressure it may result in strikethrough. Not enough pressure may affect the material's adhesion.
