Heat Press Application Kit: The Must-Have Heat Press Accessories
Browse Video Categories
Hey friends, Dave here with Transfer Express and today we are diving into our brand new Application Kit!
This is exclusively available through TransferExpress.com and it is a must-have bundle with all of the accessories needed for frustration free heat printing, whether you are using transfers, vinyl or even sublimating.
You're going to make back the price of this kit in time saved alone! So, what's all included in the kit, you ask? Well, let's dive in and check it out!
We've put together all of the heat press accessories we use the most and what we call the Application Kit, so let's take our kit and open it up and see what's inside.
Now, first thing we're going to pull out of the box here is this little guide that's included. It outlines the entire contents of the Application Kit and has this nice little section down here with a qr code that tells you how to use the heat press test strips.
These are going to be the best method to use for getting the most accurate heat press readings on your press on a budget. So that means the next step of what we should pull are these heat press test strips.
The heat press test strips here are the most accurate and cost effective way to measure the real temperature of your heat press.
With the heat press test strips, you could follow the qr code that was on the guide that came with your Application Kit for the full instructions on how to use or you could click this link right here to jump on over to that video of how to accurately use these heat press test strips.
The Application Kit includes a whole pack of cover sheets. The cover sheets are awesome to have on hand when you need to apply any decorations to the same side or close to an already printed graphic on the garment. As long as they stay clean, these paper cover sheets are reusable and don't block the 10 to 15, sometimes even 20 degrees, of heat like the thicker pads and the silicone cover sheets do.
Next up we've got our mouse pad and if you followed along with us for a little while, you'll know how much we love these things.
They are such a low cost and easy way to raise the printing areas around seams collars or buttons and allow you to achieve that medium to firm pressure screen printed transfers require.
This is all without breaking the bank with expensive accessories like the specialty platens or heat printing pillows that soften that pressure way too much for screen printed transfers.
These mouse pads can be easily adjusted under garments and placed, or even cut to the specific size you need, making them perfect for onesies, polos, printing in or around hoodie pockets, or even the hoods themselves.
Next up is a tool we've been asked about for years and that's this awesome application guide ruler contoured to the shape of a regular collar on a crewneck t-shirt.
It points out the center chest and left chest print locations (also the right chest if you need it) making alignment of your transfers an absolute breeze whether you are a beginner or pro.
Also included in the kit is a very handy application poster. It's super
easy to read and it puts all of our different products and applications at your fingertips. No more searching online. Everything is listed all right here, just a glance away.
Of course, to ensure your heat press is ready to rock we do include a t-shirt and a transfer. This is a great t-shirt to advertise your own services or have around the shop to display your quality or run it through the washer and dryer to have confidence that your shirts printed with Goof Proof screen printer transfers are built to last.
One last piece that is included is the $10 off product credit for your next purchase here at Transfer Express.
Now, as you can probably see, this kit is packed full of value that will pay for itself quickly in just the time you save applying transfers at your heat press, not to mention, the frustration it could save you if you're just starting out.
This kit is available right here, or under heat presses and accessories.
