HTVRONT Heat Press Review And Giveaway

I recently celebrated a big birthday, and possibly got the best gift I could have received as a crafter. I was given a Cricut cutting machine. 

But quite soon afterwards I discovered how expensive materials for my machine are! And whilst I do not begrudge spending more for better quality, the cost really did put me off buying some items. One of which was a larger heat press.

One of the big things that I really did want to make with my Cricut was matching t-shirts for my daughter and niece to wear. Now they are both 6, they love wearing the same outfit when we are out and about. And for the last couple of years we have done sublimation drawing on t-shirts and bought matching outfits to indulge their passion for twinning. But this year I wanted to go the extra mile and make their printable vinyl shirts matching AND personalised.

So when HTVRONT asked me to review their heat press it could not have come at a better time. 

All About HTVRONT

HTVRONT are a passionate and innovative brand with 3 core objectives. They want to provide value for money, have the vision to provide great service, and are on a mission to work on more advanced crating materials and tools to make DIY crafting easier than ever.

They kindly set me a 10×10 inch heat press in raspberry, plus a large selection of heat transfer vinyl (htv vinyl) to review. The htv vinyl sheets came with a teflon sheet for placing over your designs whilst using the press, plus a handy weeding tool.

A large selection of HTV vinyl colours

And I was excited to try it out!

The HTVRONT Heat Press

Is a 10 inch by 10 inch square heat press has many ergonomic and attractive features, including

  • Comfortable Handle
  • Evenly heated plate
  • Display window – which is the HTVRONT heat press temperature guide 
  • A safety base with insulated legs for you to place your heat press when not in use

It also comes with a cotton storage bag, which seemed the perfect object to use as a practice project!

How Do You Use The Heat Press?

Cutting The Vinyl

You can use the heat press with any HTV vinyl, be it HTV roll vinyl or HTV sheet vinyl. You just need to cut the vinyl to your chosen design then use the heat press to transfer this onto your project. This way you can customise t-shirts , bags, caps, hoodies, and so much more.

I used my Cricut to choose a design for my bag. The important thing to remember is to use the ‘mirror’ setting and to place the HTV vinyl face down (matte side up) when cutting, so that the design will be the right way up once you have weeded the design.

Preparing The Project

Next, you need to prepare your project. I used a square heat press mat on top of my usual ironing board. Then I ironed the cotton bag so that the surface to bind to was completely crease free. And turned on the heat press on its stand, setting the temperature to the 310° recommended by HTVRONT for their HTV vinyl sheets. It heated up in about a minute! 

Using The Press

I prewarmed the project for a couple of seconds with the heat press, then carefully placed my design centrally on the project.

Finally before pressing, I placed the teflon sheet over the top of the design to protect the design and the project.

Teflon sheet placed over before pressing

I placed the heat press onto the whole design and set the timer going. 

HTVRONT heat press in action

The HTVRONT heat press display automatically counts down from the time that you set, and a beeper sounds when the time is up. You can add pressure if you like (the guide is to place light to medium pressure) and the display also shows how much pressure you are exerting onto the design.

The HTVRONT heat press display

Once the 15 seconds were up, I removed the press and let the project cool. Only then did I peel off the protective coating on the design. If any part of the design had lifted off, I would have repeated the pressing and let it cool once more.

Peeling the film from the design

And here is the finished project!

Finished HTV project

Finished projects are machine washable or hand washable inside out, and then should be air dried. You should not iron the design directly, not should you bleach or dry clean the finished design.

What Do We Think Of The HTVRONT Heat Press?

I have gone on to make a couple of t-shirts for my daughter and niece so that they can twin.

HTV vinyl t-shirts

I was so very impressed with the ease of use and speed of using the heat press. And I do have tell you, it is almost half the cost of the similarly sized Cricut heat press.

In the U.K. it retails for £96.99 – find it here.

In the U.S. it retails for $109.99 – find it here.

We think that it is a great piece of equipment and such good value for the price, and I am sure I will be using this to personalise all sorts of things like drawstring bags, hand sewn gifts and Christmas presents!

    I got my cricut for A special birthday gift and I have been busy ever since, I currently struggle with a home iron until I can save for a heat press. I make a variety of things using iron on vinyl I made my daughter concert hoodies (she was none the wiser and saves me £50) I made T-shirts for her school group and added name tags to her stuff but with funky iron on labels. This seems a fantastic price and a lot more affordable! I hadn’t seen the HTVRONT Uk site either so will order some better priced vinyls now thought it was only for the states.

    The man on the market is lovely and very reasonably priced but I often think that if I could do it myself I would save the cost of the T shirt and could donate it to the charity instead.
    So if I were lucky enough to win I’d be printing my own t shirts instead and the charities would all be a bit better off.

    I’d make some amazing t-shirts to sell at our school fete next year to raise much needed funds for the school. A friend’s partner is a graphic designer so I’m sure they would help make some amazing designs for me to use on the t-shirts.
