When we think about the word importance, the first thing that comes to mind has to be the amount of value we can extract from a particular product.
That value can be exemplified by different means but as long as it is consistent, economical and finite, one should have zero problems putting it into work.
With heat press machines, the rules are no different and this article we will aim to showcase the importance of the heat press and why a world without one would be unimaginable!
Let’s put our thoughts into action and for a moment imagine in what ways heat press machines improve our lives.
I already got three on my list!
1) It Allows For The Mass Production Of Apparel
Do you know how many new logos and imprints are produced daily?
The number is way above the millions and it continues to rise each and every day as companies, be they new or established, fight for exposure in this cut-throat environment!
Before heat press machines, one would have to go to a tailor that had only one job: To imprint your logo on your apparel.
Now, I believe that you can already imagine the kind of problems you would run into doing that the old-fashioned way:
It’s time-consuming, it’s slow and it’s expensive.
These would be the least of your problems as the biggest hurdle one would face in the past was actually finding one vendor that was available to do the job!
You’ve read that right, tailors had a lot of business back in the old days.
2) It’s Cheap As Heck!
When heat press machines first came out, most companies opted for the job to be outsourced as handling a heat press was a mess in the past!
Nowadays, things have vastly changed and beyond the initial investment in the heat press machine and the materials used, doing it yourself has become a profitable endeavor.
Here is why:
Heat press machines aren’t exactly cheap you have to consider an often overlooked fact.
Plain white shirts cost anywhere between 2-3$ (we are talking about wholesale buying) and a ‘logoed’ shirt will hit your wallet with anything between 10-15$!
Let’s bring a bit of maths in our equation; If the average price of a heat press machine hovers around 1500$, that means that it would only take us 150 shirts to come out even.
Every other shirt after that is free money into our pockets!
3) The Lifetime Warranty!
This is most likely the most awesome thing about heat press machines!
Maybe investors should look at putting some cash into these babies instead of playing around with volatile currencies.
Most manufacturers are so confident in their products and the way things are working out, that they without a drop of a hat give out a lifetime warranty on their heat presses.
We have already discussed how after only a few hundred shirts, you get your money’s worth but this puts the ball on a whole other playing field!
All in all, one could never list down all the benefits of owning your own heat press machine.
If you are an owner or just an enthusiast passing by, tell us your opinion on the importance of these machines, we would love to hear back from you!
