Heat Press


The Heat Press can be used to transfer iron-on vinyl designs to fabric. These vinyl designs can be created using the Cricut Maker stations at our ORL Makerspaces locations.

The Heat Press can also be used with the Sublimation printer. Your printed designs can be transferred to polyester fabric, coffee mugs, etc., using the Heat Press.


Available at Downtown Kelowna library
