Vevor 16 X 20 Heat Press: Best Comic Press Under $400!

VEVOR Heat Press 16 X 20, 1700 Watt

While still in the hobbyist price range (under $400), this press offers some great features and really no downside other than it is physically large requiring more workspace.  We used this unit extensively in our press tutorial page.  The Vevor 16 X 20 can easily handle two books at a time and ease of use, predictable results, long service lie, all make this a two thumbs up press!  Disclosure: Some of the links here are affiliate links.
