does buying a 16x16 or 16x24 matter when buying a heat press? what are the advantages and disadvantages of buying a larger press?
It depends on what you want to press! If you are doing 8x10 size transfers,just about anything will do.
If you are doing vinyl or plastisol transfers,get at least a 16x20. The cons of the larger press is the weight!
I have a smaller unit to take with me. It is only 10x12,and is about 25 lbs. A 16x20 averages about 100 lbs
and can push 200 lbs. Unless you are sure you won't go above 8x10,buy a 16x20. Like the old adage,pay a
little more now,or a whole lot more later! Also try to stay with quality presses. Stahls,Knight etc.
