T-Shirt Presses

A T-Shirt press also called a Flat press is the most essential piece of equipment after the sublimation printer as more than 80% of all transfer printable items are flat.  For this reason, you need to be sure you get a press which not only actually works, but which can also be repaired locally.  JG Electronics has loads of experience in heat presses – we used to manufacture our own presses right here in South Africa from 1998 to 2003.

All the presses come with instructions in English, and have passed all the required SOUTH AFRICAN safety tests.  We've discovered that some presses that look like ours (because the Chinese copy everything) sold on the local market have FAILED these tests.

The T-Shirt press come in a "clamshell" and “swing-away” design.  The “clamshell” design opens like a clamshell, hence the name and the “swing-away” swings open to the side and has more even pressure than the “clamshell” design.
