Default uppgrading from my cheap 5 in 1 heat press and need help

I just opened a $10 custom t-shirt printing business and it has blown up. I have been loosing a lot of ink and shirts to my crappy 5 in 1 ebay heat press (not applying enough heat or pressure on the edges so the ink doesn't transfer) So I have been looking to get a new reliable press. I don't have $500 plus to spend so I am thinking of getting the Transpro 15x15 press by proworld. Does anyone have any experience with it? Is this my best option? I was also looking at a Hix 9x12 but I think 9x12 is going to be way to small so are there any other options for me? Thanks in advance for any help.

At your price point the Transpro from Proworld is probably going to be your best bet. But try to scrape together enough money to get the 16X20.

Some chinese ebay presses go on forever, but it is down to luck what you get. If you have a limited budget then stick to a reputable firm,like proworld, who back their cheaper products with aftersales.

Yeah, go with a reliable vendor and then save your pennies for a Hotronix Fusion. If biz is blowing up then it shouldn't take long to get there.
