We recently added a craft press to our website that comes in at one of the lowest prices of any of the heat presses we offer. However, we wanted to give it a test and let you guys know our thoughts before you buy! So here it is!


Name: Craft Heat Press


Brand: Hotronix


Price: $295


Platen Size: 9” X 12”



-This press comes with a one year full warranty.

-It has a digital time and temperature read out right on the press. We offer some other smaller presses that come with a separate timer and don’t tell you the exact temperature that it’s at so that feature is awesome on this.

-It’s LIGHT! Seriously, I can carry it around the warehouse here no problem. It’s small enough that you can easily put it in your vehicle if you are traveling to an event, show or anything else!

-The platen size is perfect for most simple designs. Now, if you’re doing huge designs this obviously isn’t the press for you but especially for you beginners, it’s all you need!

-We have done some pressing with this on our fb lives and it offers you a very nice even heat, ensuring that you design is pressed correctly and will last longer compared to using a cheap press or hand iron.

-The price! For $295 you can assure that you are pressing with the correct temperature for the correct time.


Pro or Con depending on your preference:

-Yes, it is HOT PINK! I think the vibrant color is awesome however, to each their own.



-Platen size if you are doing larger designs.

-No way to tell what your pressure is set at. There is the dial to adjust it, but you just have to go with how it feels and adjust from there. You can definitely tell when the pressure is firm and light there is just no number to it like the more expensive presses have.


We hope you found this review hopeful if you are thinking about purchasing a heat press or are in need of a new one!
