What's The Types of Sublimation Heat Press Machine?

 
From there, depending on what type of sublimation or projects you're doing, that will determine the types of heat presses machine. Now, this big red guy on the left is your calendar heat press. These are great if you're going to do soft signage. Long pieces of fabrics, flags and things of that nature. It's like a big laminator but it gets to 400 degrees. So what you do is you print on your transfer paper and when you're done you take that roll (it is for roll-to-roll printing) and load it onto the press. Next, take your roll of fabric, load it on the press, and it marries the two together. It will go through these calendar rolls with heat (400 degrees) and pressure and then the transfer begins. Then you have this nice roll of fabric where the images are transferred to. So that's your bigger guy.

For smaller specialty items, this middle press right here - you have your flatbed - great for t-shirts, things of that nature, mouse pads or even metal panels. There are attachments you can also get, so you can do mugs or plates - just different things that have a different thickness and different curved shapes.  And then people can get into specialty made vacuum presses to go over odd curves and things like that. So basically, it's the heat and pressure that that causes the sublimation process.
 
 
 
 
Then we have this big flatbed press on the right. If you're going to do full graphic shirts or multiple panels, then this has a larger bed where you can do many things. This is a great option as you grow your business. Say you want to do multiple shirts at a time or if you want to do all-over graphics on the shirt, this would be ideal because you have the space. And if you have those fleece throws or those personalized blankets, that will fit the large platen a whole lot better than your smaller guy.

Depending on what you're getting into will determine the type of heat press. It could be a similar sublimation heat press, like what you would get if you were doing direct to garment, like the flatbed, or you can get that rotary heat press if you're going more into soft signage or even cut and sew pieces. For cut and sew pieces, there is a table that works in conjunction with the rotary heat press where it feeds the table. You just lay your pieces of fabric and printed transfer paper on there and it feeds it to the roller. So you're not limited to just the roll-to-roll
pressing.
