The company manufactures and retails a comprehensive array of heat press machines in different types and sizes. We make it clear at the outset that Vevor heat presses are mass produced in China, and therefore of questionable quality.

These heat presses from Vevor can at best be used for small businesses and customizing personal items for near and dear ones.

Vevor Hat Heat Press

View Price

 The Vevor Hat Press Machine is a self-contained entry-level heat press suitable for novice designers who’ve just started on the learning curve. As it is a standalone unit, it cannot be used in conjunction with other units, and also does accept accessories or attachments. To be specific, you cannot take out the OEM heat platen and install another one of a different size.

This standalone hat heat press from Vevor is exactly what you need if you’re exclusively into personalizing golf or baseball caps.  However a multifunctional hat press is more suitable if you want to heat transfer graphics and images on items other than caps like t-shirts. Nevertheless bear in mind that using a multifunction hat press is more complicated than working with the standalone version.

For a start, you’ll have to change the heat platen every time your heat transfer material changes. Additionally, you’ll need to have some prior experience for using a multifunctional hat press to good effect.

Features

  • Coated handle with rubber grip
  • Aluminum heating element CNC-machined from a single high-grade aluminum block
  • Delivered fully assembled for using right out of the box
  • Sturdy steel framework designed to last
  • Temperature range {0°-750°F}
  • Time control range: 0-999 seconds

  Pros

  • Parallel handles with ergonomic rubber-grip
  • This hat press is heavy-duty and incredibly stable
  • Die-cast aluminum heat platen with a guaranteed service life of 12,000 hours
  • Precisely curved and sized components for accurate heat transfers to different varieties of caps
  • Precision digital temperature and timer controls

Cons

  • You’ll struggle to open and close the handles
  • Platen does not heat up evenly
  • You cannot interchange the integrated platen as it’s a standalone unit
