This depends on the type of items you are planning to personalize with heat print graphics. For instance, if you are going to print team jerseys for football and hockey, you will need a press that is at least 16′′ x 20′′. If you are only doing t-shirts, you are probably fine with a 15′′ x 15′′ press or smaller. However, it’s easier to line things up on a bigger press, even if you’re only doing 8.5′′ x 11′′ prints, the bigger presses are still nice for this. For some people though, it’s hard to justify the expense just for laying things out a little easier if you’re buying a new press and you aren’t planning on doing large jerseys or jackets. Keep in mind that if you plan to do this type of printing in the future, you might want to consider the largest press possible that you can afford and that you can fit in your workspace.
