The machine used to transfer the sublimation print on the t-shirt is called sublimation heat press. It starts from as low as Rs 15000 and goes up to Rs 3 Lakh depending upon the level of automation. Manual machines may have a handle to press down the heat plate while the automatic one operates pneumatically. In automatic presses, there is an option of auto opening but often this leads to a fault called "ghosting" due to the shifting of the garment. Three important factors are considered in a machine i.e. Platen configuration, Platen size and mode of operation (manual or pneumatic).
