Printing designs onto t-shirts is not just a fun activity, it is a business, and you can make some extra money from it if you know how.

It’s easy. All you have to do is buy a heat press machine. In this review, I will be telling you all about one of the best heat press machines in the market.

The best thing about this Zeny heat press is that it has multiple functionalities. Let’s find out more about this and other great features that this machine has.

Digital Temperature and Time Controls

When the temperature and time controls are digital, it is much easier to use a heat press. It is also more accurate and reliable. When the settings are not accurate, you are likely to scorch your t-shirts by cranking the temperatures too high unintentionally.

It also enables you to select use either the Fahrenheit or the Celsius scale. So you have the freedom to choose the one you are most comfortable with.

It also comes with a multi-spring balancer.

Even Distribution of Pressure and Heat

There is an even distribution of pressure across the entire surface of the platen. Even pressure is one of the main elements you should look for when buying a new heat press machine.

Another important element is even heating. The heating should be evenly distributed throughout the platen, and this heat press machine offers that.

With even heating, you can work on the t-shirt at any point. Otherwise, you would have to try and discover the parts which receive the most heat. Without even heating, you would not have satisfactory results.

For instance, when printing a name, some of the letters would not be correctly transferred since there is not enough heat in every part of the platen’s surface. With this heat press machine, you can avoid such disappointments.

The heating board has a thickness of 4/5 inches.

Quick Heating

If you are not new to using heat presses, you know how annoying it is to work with a machine that warms up at a sluggish pace. Naturally, you want to work faster so as to save time and finish your work quicker.

This Zeny heat press has a quick warm up time. You won’t have anything to complain about in that department.

Multi-Purpose Heat Press

With this heat press, you can work on many materials and items. It has been called a 6-in-1 multi-functional heat press machine because of the different types of presses it comprises.

On one level, it is a fully-assembled machine with a platen press. It also has a hat press, mug press, and plate press. So it’s not just about t-shirts with this machine. If you have mugs and hats you want to print on, this heat press is just the thing for you.

Fully Assembled Heat Press Machine

You don’t have to worry about how you are going to assemble the parts of the machine. Not everyone is good at that kind of thing. But this one comes fully assembled, so there is no hassle there. The moment it arrives, you can start using.

Robust and Durable

If you are looking for a heat press that will last a long time, you should consider this one. It has a rigid steel frame that gives it the sturdiness a good machine should have. It is robust, well-built, and will serve you well.

Working Surface Covered by Teflon

It’s important to protect the platen or your shirts using a Teflon sheet. Teflon prevents the heat transfer materials from sticking to the platen. That would cause your shirts to get stained during your next session. It also protects your shirts from scorching due to high temperatures.

But with this heat press machine, you don’t need a Teflon sheet because the working surface is covered by Teflon.
