Insta 418 Clamshell Cap Press

Regular price $975.00 $0.00

The Insta 418 Digital Cap Heat Press is a terrific multi-purpose heat press. Its curved platens are perfectly molded to mirror the curves of a hat and are designed to apply heat transfers onto cap brims and bills. Although it was originally designed as a heat press machine for hats, the Insta 418 has also proven to be an effective tool for printing logos and back-neck labels onto flat garments. Its portable, compact design and quiet operation make this press perfect for use in a home or retail environment.
