Hello, and welcome to Heat Press Review, your premier web resource for all things related to heat presses.

Senior Editor

Shane Norris

 I oversee a team of creative professionals and industry experts who write great content for people looking to get into the t-shirt business. 


Growing up, I was never sure whether I wanted to be a writer or an artist. I loved the written word and had a profound appreciation for art and the people who create it.


I ended up pursuing a degree in technical writing and built a career writing manuals for companies that make heat press machines. This led to a natural transition into my role as Senior Editor here at Heat Press Review. Contact me at [email protected]

 I got my start in writing and editing when I was still in high school. I worked on our school’s website as an editor and did the same when I went to college. 


After receiving dual degrees in creative and business writing, I went to work for an online news publication. This really helped me learn to work and editing quickly to get the news out, a skill that has served me well in all of the editing jobs I’ve had. 


Here at Heat Press Review, I help our Senior Editor oversee a team of amazing writing, editing, and t-shirt industry professionals. Contact me at [email protected]

 I serve in the capacity of Heat Press Expert for Heat Press Review.


When I was growing up, my parents owned the only print business in our small town. They made all of the t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, and even letter jackets for our local schools and sports teams. I learned everything there is to know about this industry working afternoons and weekends at our shop. 


After going to college and earning an engineering degree, I was able to marry my love of the t-shirt industry, graphic design, and machinery to make myself an expert in not only this industry but heat presses in general.  Reach me at [email protected]
