What We Love
1. Product Design
Not your conventional looking heat press machine, it’s sleek and white which makes it worth taking up the corner of your creative space!
2. Material Compatibility
Non-restricting to fabrics, the large surface area and mode variety make it versatile to print anything from puzzles, mouse pads, and even phone cases!
What We Don't
1. Proof in The Press-ing
MakerBliss promises a wide variety of prints on different surfaces, however aside from two very similar videos showing a real-time print onto t-shirt’s, there’s a lack of visual aid to show the usability on other mediums.
2. Too Automated and Minimal
Pre-set temperature and pressure control means those experienced with heat pressers may find this product a little restricting. Additionally, while the design looks like an ambiguously sleek printer, backers have raised questions about MakerBliss’ decision to not include a handle for the slide out tray which may be far practical for use.
Is it Worth it?
The MakerBliss helps cut labour through automatic pressing and lifting, providing more time to allocate on ideas, whatever the medium! Made for at-home creations, it’s a safe beginners investment. While the automated functions are great, it may be restricting to those who want specific pressures and temperatures on creations. While we wait for further video content to show how good this presser is, we wait in positive anticipation. For $129, it’ll be worth the investment especially for personal print sales! But with estimated shipping costs being as high as $150, let’s hope it’s worthwhile to get this baby home.
