  • Siser TS One Reviews, looking at buying a heatpress?

    Posted by Matthew Greer on December 11, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    Hi guys looking at buying a heat press after xmax and was wondering what to go for. I only plan on doing holiday t shirts for people eg.. stag and hen partys and maybe a few other things but nothing major to start will to see how it goes. Ive got a vinyl cutter as currently do signs and vans but looking at widening my market.
    Can anyone suggest any for me?

    Ive seen this one but not sure what its like:

    Cheers
    Matt

    The xpres one you put the link to is probably one of the best out there. I have one which is 10+yrs old and hasn’t missed a beat. Good consistent results, even temperature across the surface, just a great heat press.

    Grafityp do the Siser TS ONE, I bought one from them a few years back.
    I also bought 2 other press "heads" along with it.
    Basically, with the Siser TS ONE you have the press, but you can quickly change the press plate with only the need to unclip one wire and pull it.
    yes you have one press, but means you can press pretty much anything from umbrellas, t-shirts, hats, pockets, training shoes and much more.
    have a look at some of these quick videos.

    Matthew we offer that many heat presses now that it does my nut in 🙂
    TS-One as Rob as mentioned, just brought out a footwear attachment for this press so you can deco up footwear.

    SEFA presses we also do and have for a fair few years now and they come with a very good warranty, give me a shout if you need any more info.

    Hello Matt,

    Drop me an email and I will give you the prices on the heat presses, any solvent / eco solvent printer will do for printing onto textile vinyl, take your pick from Roland BN-20, VersaCamm or Mutoh or Mimaki etc.

    When we bought a cutter we bought a heat press the following month, that was 15 years ago. We paid £750 from target transfers, we still use that press every day, never let us down.

    We did buy a cheap one some years latter and believe it not we couldn’t figure out the timer. Sold it one a month later.

    Buy from a dealer who will still be around 12 months later.

    Hello Rob & Matt, Rob the video shows parts of several attachments been used, such as the top plate 15cm and the foot attachment, I do believe the foot attachment has or is undergoing a change in design.

    Matt, heat press machines there are so many out their to choose from and you will find most will do the job no problem at all……….at first, the main pitfalls on a heat press poor heating element design and quality, lesser spec of materials used for the platens so overtime the cheaper presses platens will distort, and finally support and warranty.

    Regards
    Nigel
