Whew! Let us tell you that it got hot in the workshop while we were working on this one for you! Ever since we got our clamshell heat press earlier this year, we’ve been wanting to do a comparison video to help you decide whether a clamshell heat press or swing away heat press is right for you. There are some BIG differences between a clamshell and swing away heat press, and we show you those big differences, as well as highlight some key features to look out for on both styles of heat presses once you’ve decided which way you want to go.

Check out our comparison of Clamshell vs. Swing Away Heat Presses Below:
