Hey guys so my hotronix hat press came in and I was extremely happy up until I pressed my first hat. It was a foam hat and I did exactly what I was reading. (This was for sublimation) I placed my print lined it up and threw heat tape on it with no Teflon (which another bad idea) I don’t know why they tell you not to use it but some ink got on my heat platen and you’ll see it on my white hat below. Craft paper should probably have been used. but anyway so now the press completes and it has markings from the heat tape and a box around the print from the paper. I figured I needed more of a firm base so I didn’t get bent out of shape I ordered Teflon pillows and still getting creases in the hats I tried different pressures but did stay around the area pressure you should be at when applying subs and or vinyl. If anyone has any feedback I’d appreciate the help. I will attach some photos and maybe just let me know what you think. The red hat creased in the middle and the gray and white foam hats I’m sure you’ll see the marks. (Gray hat done with no pillow) everything else had the pillow. I looked for a firm heat safe foam but can’t seem to find anything safe for heat up to 400 degrees. One hat came out perfect and I think cause it’s a different style hat.
Abandoned & Auctioned Storage lockers - gotta love 'em. A friend of mine obtained a locker recently and it contained a hat press, which he let me have for the low-low deal of $80. And then, astonishingly, on craigslist some fellow had a case of hats for sale (60 for $70). So, I'm now about to try hat making, while all I need is some HTV vinyl.
Hats have been causing us so many problems. Anyone have tips for pressing caps (esp 6 panel where you deal with a seam thru your vinyl) this looks horrible... (see photo) cap: flexfit 63% polyester, 34% cotton, 3% spandex vinyl: siser easyweed htv
I have a client that is looking for some embroidered hats to go along with a T-shirt order I am fulfilling. I will have all the artwork set up and ready to go and can even purchase the hats if necessary. I will be using a solid color logo and depending on hat color will most likely be white or black thread. Thanks in advance! Attached is a photo of her last hat design to give an idea. The font/logo will be updated but will be using the same style hats and same relative size for the embroidery.
