A 'Must Have' accessory for Easy Press
September 15, 2018
There is one thing that we don't want in our attempts at making a nice shirt or other garment... is failure. HTV sheets ain't cheap, so getting a good result every time is essential. This mat is king when it comes to what we need, CONSISTENCY. The mat provides fantastic consistency in terms of:
- Surface: A large area that's just firm enough to provide a smooth surface and even contact patch for the press. No more using towels or fading your kitchen table.
- Temperature: The inside layers make for even temperatures over the surface consistently. Towels, tables, and other surfaces can have wildly uneven heat absorption rates, causing poor adhesion in random places. The bottom stays nice and cool as well, so it wont harm the surface underneath with heat.
- Moisture: Towels can provide inconsistent moisture wicking and dispersion, who knows what's in your pillow..
- Time: Since the mat surface is consistent in smoothness and temperature, press times can be far more accurate and consistent as well. This is incredibly important with multi color designs and hot peel tacking.
All these variables added together can make for frustrating results. The mat takes out a lot of the guesswork and tweaking. The mat has nearly brought my Easy Press up to clam shell press consistency, 5+ color shirts are easy peaz.
