Seen this heat press cheaper?

Keep in mind that there are suppliers selling Stahls presses from within Germany and Belgium which may appear to be UK stock, but this isn’t the case and they don’t come with a UK Warranty.

Having said that, if you do believe there’s a UK supplier selling this press cheaper, email us, and if we can match the price we will.

A Great Budget Heat Press

We like STAHLS presses, particularly the auto open and fusion presses, but not all small business have the budget for these presses, so when Stahls announced they were producing an entry level range, with the build quality and ease of use we’d expect, but with no frills and a lower price tag, we paid attention! 

The result is in our opinion, the perfect T shirt heat press for any gift and garment decorator with a more modest budget who wants a good entry level heat press from a decent manufacturer, with a reliable warranty.

Yes, you could jump on a well known auction website and buy a cheaper press (which may or may not actually be shipped from the UK, you’ll find out after you’ve ordered…) and then hope that you’ve bought it from a supplier who will still be around if you need assistance. But if you want the peace of mind of owning a press made by a decent brand, supplied by a well established company who you can trust (we have been in business for over 44 years), and a price which won’t break the bank, then the clam basic is right up your street!

When we say that this can be a threadable press, what we mean is that when pressing onto bags or smaller sized T shirts and other garments, it’s often the case that you can’t thread the garment or bag over the bottom table, which means instead of pressing just one side of the item you have to press onto both sides. This can be a problem as in some cases the print can go through the garment, or in some cases it’s an issue as a small amount of residual print may and up on the other side of the garment or bag, thus ruining the product (it’s not quite as much of an issue for instance if a small amount of print ends up on the inside of a bag or garment as it is if it’s on the other visible outer side). It can be fixed of course by putting teflon or something else inside the garment, but if you have a smaller sized bottom table that can be used with smaller items, this would make sense. As there are various sized lower tables available for this press, it makes it a threadable press for various different sizes of garment / bag, which is quite rare for entry level heat presses. 

This press is available in 28×28, 38×38, 40×50, and cap press. Delivery is usually next working day (if ordered by 13.00, if ordering later in the afternoon please note it may be despatched the next day depending on the time of the courier collection). 

Box Size: 37″ x 22″ x 22″ / 94cm x 56cm x 56cm. 
Box weight: 46Kg.
