Our 5 Favorite Heat Press Blogs

If you’ve been around heat presses for any great length of time, many of these blogs will be familiar to you. The blogs featured here are excellent for anyone in the heat press biz or for those who have simply caught the heat press bug!



#1 Ted Stahl’s Blog



Our first feature is Ted Stahl’s blog.


You might guess simply by looking at the name that this guy knows what he’s talking about. Of course, this is Ted Stahl of Stahls’ Heat Presses – responsible for the Hotronix range of heat presses.


This blog is a wealth of information on the subject of printing t-shirts, heat presses, vinyl cutters, CAD-CUT materials and much more.


There are regular posts, how-to videos, articles, industry information, Stahls’ heat press troubleshooting and the opportunity to interact with the myth, the man, the legend, Ted Stahl himself.


Enjoy what’s on offer but keep in mind that this is a manufacturer’s blog so they’ll only be promoting their gear.


#2 Silhouette School Blog

The Silhouette School Blog is another very helpful resource for those interested in heat pressing. The focus of this blog is on Silhouette cutting machines.


If you are new to the sport, cutting machines are used for cutting vinyl for pressing with heat presses (but can also be used for many different crafts!). These machines score designs (lettering or images) into the vinyl from which you pull away any excess for the press.


While this blog’s emphasis is on use of the Silhouette machine, the hints and tips can be used with most cutting machines.


There are video tutorials, fonts and designs, books, and a shop. It is a fun site full of value which you ought to check out!


#3 Siser Blog


Siser are well known as the makers of Siser EasyWeed Vinyl. They also have an excellent blog that they add to each week. This is where they introduce new products they are putting out, and it’s also a place to get inspired with cool project ideas. For example, how to decorate an apron.


There are other informational pieces, such as how to tell authentic Easyweed vinyl from the fakesyes, their product is so popular and good that people try to imitate it!


Their blog also has a ton of really quality how-to and informative videos, like the one below. There is no doubt these videos will inspire and motivate you to start creating!




#4 The Proworld Blog

Yet another site that you must check out – The Proworld Blog!


Similar to previously featured blogs, this one contains heat press information, tips, how-to’s, videos, project ideas and, as always, a whole lot more.
