    Questions and Answers

    Is a MAXXTM Heat Press the best machine for me?

    The Maxx heat presses are an economical line for those producing shirts as a hobby for friends and family, or using for occasional professional use.

    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.

    Why is it necessary to pre-heat a garment before heat applying?

    Pre-heating your garment removes the chemicals and moisture that may be in the garment due to manufacturing. Also, pre-heating assures a wrinkle free surface for heat application.
