1 Introduction

In french: "presse de transfert", "presse thermique", "presse à chaud". In german: transferpresse, hitze presse, textilpresse

We just ordered a Ricoo T538B heat press and will report once it arrives. The model gets decent enough reviews in various places, e.g. the price/quality+functionality relationship seems to be OK.

If you live in Europe, buying in Germany is probably cheaper. E.g. a same model was 300 on the german and 500 on the french Amazon. Most cheaper models seem to have small problems identified in various online reviews. A good German make cannot be found under 600 Euros.
