Pre-Heat Garment

First, place the garment on platen, heat press for 3-5 seconds or until there is no more steam to remove wrinkles and moisture. Ensure there are no obstructions such as buttons, pockets, or seams. If there are, raise only the print area with a Print Perfect Pad.

Remove the Backing Paper

Remove the backing paper from the transfer. You should be left with the transfer on a clear plastic carrier.

Position & Press

Place the transfer on the garment. You should be able to see the transfer as it will appear on the garment. Press for 5 seconds then peel off the clear plastic carrier quickly in a smooth, even motion. Cover with a cover sheet and press for an additional 5 seconds.

The recommended time, temperature, and pressure settings are for Stahls' Hotronix® heat press machines. Settings on other heat presses may vary.
