Digital heat press machine is fantastic value for money and ideal for anyone wanting to produce sublimation printed products used in conjunction with our A4 Sublimation Printer Packages.

An excellent choice for those starting out in sublimation printing without breaking the bank.

With a medium size 38 x 38cm heating element this machine is perfect for anyone using an A4 sublimation printer and will allow maximum coverage from designs printed on this size media.

Perfect for all flat products including t-shirts, cushion covers, aprons, metal sheets, jigsaw puzzles, mouse mats, coasters, chopping boards this list goes on. This machine will allow sublimation on to most flat and thin sublimation blank products.

For thicker products (over 10mm / 1cm) such as sublimation slate we recommend using a swing away style heat press.

The clam shell design provides excellent levels of pressure, but this can also be adjusted depending on the product being heat pressed.

Perfectly suited to the hobbyist or small business user looking to begin their journey into sublimation.

Simple to use, the digital control panel allows for quick and easy change of temperature and time to suit the recommended settings for the blank item being heat pressed.

The main frame construction is steel with a textured black powder coat finish. The control module is finished in ‘Ink Experts’ hot magenta pink.

Please note the bottom platen of our heat presses are produced using a casting method (to keep costs as low as possible), visually this means the edges can be rough and are not machine finished. The casting process has no effect on physical performance, reliability or use of the machine.

Power Source-

Heat presses draw a considerable amount power and voltage.

They therefore require a stable electrical current from the main supply.

Ensure the heat press power lead is plugged directly into a main outlet wall socket.

DO NOT use a multiple adaptor, extension lead or other alternative power source as this will cause the electric supply to short or trip fuses.

  1. Sally Congram

    This is press is fabulous. I’m a complete novice, and chose this one for the companies reputation of customer aftercare, however, I haven’t needed any help, it’s simple to set up and use. In fact, I didn’t have to do anything to it out of the box, other than remove the plastic.
    I have sublimated glass, polyester, cotton, MDF, mouse mats, bar runners, doormats, note pads, phone covers, compact mirrors, and so many other little projects. I can not recommend this press enough, if you have been thinking about buying one, I would say your search is over, this does everything you would need

  2. Christine Bownes

    I had previously bought a sublimation printer from Ink Experts and was so impressed with the customer service I didn’t even consider buying a heat press from anyone else. The press was delivered on time and very easy to set up and use, even for a beginner like myself. I’ve used it on aluminium sheets, tote bags, T-shirts, ceramic and mdf coasters and everything has come out perfectly. A nice size and very sturdy, fabulous colours too. Would highly recommend this heat press.
