Heat Press Video with Ribbon Attachment

This video requires the latest version of the Macromedia Flash Player. Get the Flash Player


From the video:


The guides on the front are adjusted for the ribbon. The second set of guides are for the print paper. The tissue paper paper protect the belt and as always goes in first. You’ll see as it exits, the press paper wraps over the top of the bars to prevent ghosting.

You can see in this setup that the print paper is on the lollipops and the ribbon is coming from a box just below the lollipops. Here at the exit you can see the finish product as it is printed – a polka dot ribbon.

You can see the ribbon attachment simply clamps onto the front bar of the heat press stand to keep the attachment parallel. The collars on the front are used to align the paper with the ribbon product.
