Heat Press reviews for 2023: Our Suggestions


Comic Heat Presses are not all created equal.  First off, you probably already know that comic Heat Press is actually a multi purpose dry mount presses, created primarily to add graphic content to T-shirts!  As you can imagine, the requirement of sophistication and precision to heat transfer something on to a T-shirt may not be up to the standard required for working on high value, collectible comics.  Each year we sample a variety of heat presses and narrow down the top five we feel are suitable for comic enthusiasts from hobbyists to professionals.  Parameters include but are not limited to:

  • Affordability
  • Durability
  • Structure
  • Heat displacement
  • Ease of use
  • Cost

Our review process involves actual testing of the presses.  We also “deep dive” into the customer feedback (not just the last couple reviews…) to see what other consumers feel about the product. Often reviews may or may not be factual, accurate, or even malicious.  Our vetting process takes all these variables into account, saving you time and money in the process. We have included the Amazon link for each product as well, we are an Amazon affiliate website and may receive compensation from referral purchases.


Here are our “bets picks” when it comes to comic presses in 2023:

Best entry level press:  Vevor 12 X 10 Heat Press

Best mid level hobby press:  Tusy 15 X 15 Heat Press

Best Press under $400:  Vevor 16 X 20 Heat Press
