Swing-away style presses are my personal favorite because they provide adjustable pressure for substrates up to 2 inches thick.

A good sublimation partner can give you the guidance needed to make the right choice. 6. Heat press accessories. A green heat conductive rubber pad is a must for products such as SubliSlate and porcelain ornaments. A Vapor Foam Kit helps pre- vent unsightly transfer creases and marks on fabric. A Nomex pad helps reduce press time on ceramic tiles. Always check instructions for special accessories. 7. Metal fabrication. Don't limit yourself to traditional metal shapes and sizes! Use a metal fabrication accessory such as a shear, corner cutter, or roller 800.289.0400 ProSub ™ Aluminum Sheet Stock 8 colors - 12" x 24" Sheets AS LOW AS $2.59 PRICE LOWEST GUARANTEED
