Insta Graphic is a family company that has been making quality printing products for more than 50 years. It started off as two men that sold heat press machines to school clubs but was later bought out by chemist that helped create Elmer’s glue and is now run by his daughter.
When you’re purchasing your own heat press it’s good to keep in mind investing in extensions that could make higher quality products and help to keep your heat press in better shape. Here are a couple products to consider.
- Maintenance kits will help keep your press in good shape while not in use. One of the most important maintenance products is a heat cover that protects the silicone pad on the heat press which provides even pressure.
- Teflon sheets are a very necessary part when it comes to the protection of both the machine and the fabric you’re working on. These sheets help to absorb some of the heat that is being produced from the machine in order to transfer the design.
- Heat platens are interchangeable platforms used to apply pressure and heat to the fabric. There are typically two platens used for a heat press; a lower platen that doesn’t usually add heat and an upper platen that applies both heat and pressure.
- Silicone pads come in different sizes for a variety of heat presses. If you have a heat press you’ll need to purchase plenty of silicone pads for replacements. These pads help to provide the proper amount of heat to provide the highest quality of prints possible.
All accessories available on this website are available in all the heat press sizes for Insta Graphic machines.
Insta Graphic has always been an active member of many different communities in need. By donating their graphic services or donating large portions of their profits they’ve helped out events such as “Concert for the Environment” and charities like the Downtown Women’s Center for Homeless Women.
For actual heat press machines warranties vary. Upper heat platens are given a lifetime warranty, press parts are given a 1 year warranty, and the labor necessary do deliver and install the press are covered within the first 90 days the press is ordered.
