Fancierstudio Power Heat Press Range
There are so many FancierStudio heat press listings that it can be overwhelming. When you search ‘Fancierstudio 15 x 15 heat press’ in Amazon, this is what comes up…!
The color of the top heat platen is basically the only real difference between these machines, though the price can vary as well. Our advice is just to go with the cheapest machine.
Here are two other sizes and styles of Fancierstudio press.
Fancierstudio 9×12 Heat Press
This 9×12 inch press from Fancierstudio is a bit different from the 15×15″ models. It is a small swing-away heat press, rather than a clamshell. It’s compact, easy to store and/or travel with.
You can use it for all the same transfers as the other machines. Small heat press machines are good for working with baby and kids clothes.
Fancierstudio 16×20 Heat Press
There is also the 16×20″ Fancierstudio press. This machine is good for those pressing large transfers or large garments. It could also be possible to do all-over sublimation.
It’s basically the same machine as the 15×15″ models, but with larger heat platens. Learn more about large heat press machines here.

Many people do use these machines for limited commercial use as well, though we’d would be hesitant to do this. These machines are not as consistent and reliable as other machines (Heat Press Nation units, for example).
Fancierstudio machines have a higher rate of faults and returns than machines like the MPress Heat Press. They are more prone to having issues.
These machines come with a 6 month warranty as specified under the warranty section on Amazon. There is also Amazon’s A to Z Guarantee which protects you against rouge sellers. However, given Fancierstudio’s time in the market and success in selling heat press machines, they are likely to deal fairly with any claims.
You can find contact details on their website. You can connect by phone, email, or they even have a live chat box at certain times.
Finally, it is worth paying a little bit more for a two or three year extended warranty when you check out. This is usually automatically offered as you’re going through the purchase process.
