I started with one of those home made presses on ebay they are good if your on a budget. The platen is an electronic gridle made for cooking. You might notice that you will get hot spots or burned yellow spots on your shirts or transfers. It is caused because the gridles heating element does not cover the whole surface like a regular heat press. The heat from the gridle will be hotter in different areas and will not give you an even or consistant heat acroos the surface.

I used my home made press for a month and saved enough money for a Phoenix heat press. With the Phoenix press I don't have to worry about hot spots, burned spots, uneven pressure or uneven heat. I press a couple of hundred shirts a month and the only damaged shirts i have is when my suppliers send me a shirt that has something wrong with it already.
