Many successful printing businesses that utilize heat transfer as a product decoration method print their designs in-house using a supplementary printer or a white-toner transfer printer. The heat presses that act as the medium and the source of heat that allow you to adhere to the different designs on various surfaces come in various forms to enable you to transfer the designs differently. Some of the advantages of this technology in business are:
