Hey guys my name is Khydijah and I'm looking to by a heat press and to arar my apparel company but i don't know which way to go. I've been looking at cheap vs. expensive, geo night vs. hix, china vs. America and still don't have a clue of what machine would be best. So I thought maybe if I asked you all what make/model machine you have? Does it do everything you want it to? And how much did it cost? I can get an idea of what would work for me. I need my machine to be able to last at least 5-7 years if not longer, have the ability to press shirt (thick and thin , big and small) pant legs, sleeves, aprons etc... You know pretty much any flat even surface. Down the line I am going to add caps etc. but for right now just need a great stable cost efficient machine. I would like to pay no more than 4-450 but will go up if I'm secure it will be everything and more for a long time, b/c this is an investment.
