Manual Heat Press Machines

Here you will find our line of manual heat presses. Manual heat press machines generally have a lower price when compared to automatic machines. To operate they require more user involvement and more touch and instinct.

Manual heat press machines are great for shops just starting out as they offer a lower starting cost and allow you to get a feel for the industry. You will learn to apply the right amount of pressure, dwell time, and temperature for different types of garments and transfers. Soon, using your manual heat press machine will become second nature. Hand-operated heat press operators can even approach the output of automatic heat presses; over time, your manual machine press process will become more efficient. A key advantage of manual heat presses is that they do not require air compressors, so you have one less cost starting out and one less machine (the air compressor) to maintain.

We do offer a manual heat press machine, Insta 158, with an automatic release feature, if that is more your style. Check out our selection of manual heat presses for professional grade, high-quality machines from Insta Graphic Systems.
