About

Hi there, my name is Simon Scott!

Welcome to Heat Press Hangout!

For the best part of a decade I have worked in and around heat press machines as a special technician, but on a larger scale than the machines I focus on for this website. To cut a long story short, when large companies have heat press and screen-printing machines that stop working, I am the guy they get to come in to figure out what’s wrong and fix it. I’d like to think I am a bit like a superhero for the printing industry, but then, that’s just sad!

Thanks to the years I’ve spent in the industry and the experience and knowledge I’ve picked up along the way, I felt I was suitably qualified to put together a site for people interested in using heat press machines and screen printing machines from the comfort of their own home.

Helping You Create Your Own Business

The commercially available machinery that you can get your hands on now is remarkably high spec and perform the jobs they are designed to at a very high standard. That is why so many people are looking to start their own businesses using them. Whether it’s a side hustle making customized t-shirts or a more serious endeavor involving everything from personalized mugs and hats to decorative wall decals, the possibilities are endless.

Therefore, despite being surrounded by industrial and commercial sized printers most of my working day, I still love working on this site. Knowing that I can pass on even a little of what I know to help a fledgling start-up or just a housewife with three kids in Vermont, makes me incredibly happy.

Plus, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy talking shop!

What Can You Learn Here at Heat Press Hangout?

The question would probably be best posed in a different way – what can’t you learn here at Heat Press Hangout?! Well, I can’t tell you how to find true love, how to solve world hunger or even how to make the best Spaghetti Bolognese (okay, I might be able to help with that, but there’s a time and a place people, and this isn’t the place).

However, if there is anything you want to know about heat press machines, screen printing, sublimation printers and everything related, you’ve come to the right place.

  • Our Guide section – This is where you will find the technical tutorials, tips and suggestions. You’ll find detailed descriptions of all the different types of machines, tips for using them most effectively and maintenance tutorials among many other important things.

So, you’ll find the Best Die Cutting Machines, Embroidery Machines, Epson Printer for Heat Transfer, Heat Press Machines, Screen Printing Machines and Sublimation Machines.
