So much better then the wood platen!
Hi Drew! We agree! Thanks for the great feedback! Happy printing!
One of the best upgrades to do
Upgrading to these aluminum platens from the traditional wooden platens has been one of the best upgrades I have done. No more warping from the heat and they are easier to line up your apparel. They also make flashing a little quicker once they get warmed up and give you a little larger area to print. If you are running the old wood platens, then I highly recommend upgrading to these.
Hello and thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Very good to hear you are happy with this upgrade to your press. Aluminum platens are for sure worth the extra money, as you won't be replacing them like the wood platens. They come in many different sizes as well. Happy Printing! Sincerely, April w/ Ryonet
Great product and amazing service
Hello valued customer! Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback on the Riley Hopkins Aluminum Platen with Bracket - 16x18in! It makes us happy to make your dreams come true! Happy printing :) - firstname.lastname@example.org
I upgraded from the 16"x16" w/ Neck wooden platen and I'm glad I did. This 16x18in aluminum platen makes it easier to center my prints and also allows me to print larger images. Once the aluminum heats up, it makes flashing even faster. You won't regret getting this platen.
Kevin! An aluminum platen is definitely an upgrade! Not that there's anything wrong with the wooden ones, but these babies do exactly what you're saying - it helps speed up your process and set up time! Every second counts, right? Thank you so much for sharing your feedback so others can grab some helpful tips, as well. You're awesome, and we really appreciate you! Keep up the great work - You ROQ! Sincerely, Kayli B
Large size, nice and flat. Very sturdy. Very expensive as well. I am glad you have dropped the shipping rate. I think shipping should be free on this item.
