After resisting getting a proper heat press for nearly a year, we finally caved and have absolutely NO regrets. We’ve been using the Cricut EasyPress for all of our sublimation and HTV needs, which has worked mostly well until now. However, the more we’ve experimented with different sublimation blanks, the more we realized that we needed a proper heat press.
So, we did tons of research about what the best heat press in 2021 is, and we ended up buying the Starcraft Swing Away 8-in-1 Heat Press from Brilliant Vinyl.
Check out this video for the unboxing and test of our new Starcraft Heat Press!
