Types of Heat Presses for Sublimation

            Flat platen heat presses are the type of heat presses that are used for at least 90% of the sublimation products.  These flat presses are available in basically two designs either a clam shell press which is hinged at the back or a swing away press which allows the top platen to swing or move to the side.  If shirts and other thin items are going to be the main products then either style press will work well.  If thicker products, like tiles are going to be pressed, then the swing away press may be a better choice.  The flat platen presses start as small as 9” x12” and go to 20 x 25” in standard production models.  Custom presses in much larger sizes can be ordered from several manufacturers.


            For products having a curved surface special presses are available.  The mug press is specially designed to close around the curved surface of a mug or stein while applying even heat and pressure.


            Cap presses are easy to use and very popular for sublimation.  Some presses can be ordered with interchangeable platen sizes to accommodate the various types including golf, baseball and youth caps.
