Hey guys...

I've been using a singer magic press which is made for ironing clothes and stuff for like 2 years for my shirts. They come out really nice... my customers seem to like them but do you guys think there is a reason for me to buy a more expensive press? How would the shirt come out different??

I'm not really sure how hot it gets.. All I know is that its hot enough to burn the crap out of my hand lol (i know from lots of experience)... You can't control the heat by temperature... you can put the type of material like a regular iron... I've been putting it on max... My press doesn't use steam... its just a heat one...

I'm going to have to see if i can try a shirt on a commerical press and see what the difference really is.. because if u guys can get the same results from a 100-200 dollar press there isn't any reason that I know why you need to buy a 600 dollar one....

But i could be wrong :D

The reason we buy heat presses is... they were made for the job we are doing. If I were to go into the clothes ironing biz, I might but the Singer clothes press.

The proper tool for the job should be your motto.

Extreme example here: Would you go buy an oven mitt to be the catcher on a ball team? Maybe use a kithen strainer to replace a proper face mask? If not, why skimp on the proper tool to press designs on shirts?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it! if you and your customers are content with the quality of your product, why change?

Hey, If it's working good for you and your product comes out right,keep your money in your pocket for now.But only you know if it's doing the right job or not.You will eventually need a heat press though.Good luck
