Re: will this work?

dry mount presses are used in photograpy, but i dont know what for. however, it will do what i need it to do.

looks like im going to have to research screen printing vs heat press.
thanks!

We've got some good posts here about that; I've gone into pretty good detail about the pros and cons of each, so search away.

I doubt a dry mount press will be able to apply the kind of pressure and tempreture that you will need for heat transfer, but I'm not certain.

Twinge is correct. the dry mount press will not give you consistant heat and pressure that would be required. Before I sold our dry mount press I tried just to see.

Dry mount presses are designed to apply images to substrates using special paper sheets containing heat activated glue.
