Maker Hub’s Tool Tip Friday: Heat Press

Thursday, October 27th, 2022

Maybe a birthday is coming up, or you’re already worried about what you’re going to get your loved ones for Christmas. No need to sweat – the Maker Hub has many machines and tools to cover your gift-making needs!

The Maker Hub’s Stahls Maxx Clam Heat Press is a machine used to transfer graphics onto items like T-shirts, bags and jerseys. Materials that can be transferred include heat transfer vinyl (HTV), screen printed transfers, rhinestones and more. Within the Hub, the heat press works in conjunction with the vinyl printer/cutter as well as the dye sublimation printer. Check out this video to see how it works! For more information on how you can make a custom shirt, check out the Maker Hub’s Wiki page.

The Maker Hub exists as a resource and creative outlet for the entire George Fox community (yes, including non-engineers). We are looking for student aces. A student ace is simply an expert on a piece of equipment who helps train other students on the use of that equipment and gains extra privileges within the Maker Hub.

Please email if you would like to get connected or have any questions.

Sign up for a civil discourse on abortion

Thursday, October 27th, 2022

Are you willing to listen to the other side, and are you willing to speak to the other side with respect?

The Oregon Statewide Alliance of Braver Angels is inviting George Fox students to join with students from Lewis & Clark to talk about abortion. The online event will take place Saturday, Nov. 5, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., via Zoom. You can sign up to be a participant or an observer here.

Questions? Ask Ron Mock, GFU’s Civility Project director, at
