Complete application instructions are included with every order. There are many types of transfers, so it is important to follow the proper temperature, time, and pressure settings included with your order.
Most full-front designs will need to be centered on the shirt. Many shirts will have a print line, a line in the shirt denoting the vertical center. The shirt tag should also be centered. The horizontal center can be found using the bottom of the arm seams.
Transfer Express transfers are centered on grid paper, making it easy to line up the center.
This is the hardest area in which to determine position. A common mistake is to place the design too close to the edge of the shirt, which places the design under the arm when the shirt is worn.
The vertical center will be the seam where the neck and sleeve meet. The horizontal center will be the line from the bottom of the arm seam across to the bottom of the other arm seam. If the print is particularly tall, you may wish to move it down slightly.
Positioning on a golf shirt should be the same as with a left-chest print, but the print area will need to be raised to avoid the shirt's buttons. This can be done with a Print Perfect pad (from Stahls').
|Long-Sleeve Shirts||Short-Sleeve Shirts|
Most long-sleeve shirts come with a fold line along the length of the sleeve. Place the edge of the sleeve print as close to that fold as possible and press. Although not perfectly centered, the print will look good when worn.
Short-sleeve shirts also come with a fold. This will be your vertical center. The easiest way to apply is using a cap press. Just place the sleeve on the press, center the transfer on the fold and press. If you don't have a cap press, you will need to use a Print Perfect pad (from Stahls') under the print area so the seam on the reverse side is not a problem.
Use the fold line of your sweatpant and position the transfer as close to this line as possible. Although not perfectly centered, when worn the transfer will look properly positioned.
Leg positioning is a matter of personal preference - hip to knee, knee to ankle, etc. Talk to your customer to see where they would like the transfer to be placed.
Easy Prints are printed on special release paper that includes a grid, making application to split-front shirts easy.
Cut the print into two parts. Usually, the print is cut just left of center so the cut will match the split front of the shirt. Try to avoid cutting through a letter.
Keeping the jersey fully buttoned, place it on the bottom platen of your heat press. Adjust the pressure setting accordingly to compensate for buttons.
|3. Pre-heat the jersey.|
Position the two halves of the print on the jersey, lining up the edge of the transfer with the split. The grid printed on Easy Prints release paper will help you align the print correctly.
|6. Peel the release paper from the right side only.|
|7. Unbutton the jersey and open it, leaving only the left half on the platen.|
|8. Press again.|
|9. Peel release paper from the left half of the shirt.|
