This page has the “Best of the Best”
in sublimation heat presses


Inkjet sublimators generally prefer swing-away heat presses. This is because this type of heat press lifts straight up and then swings to the right, out of the way. They also close by going straight down.

This means that all closing force is also going straight down. This is important when sublimating thick items. Clamshell presses (they only lift up and do not swing to the side) have a tendency to “pinch” thick items and create uneven pressure.
