Tips / Application
Please check transfers carefully before heat-applying.
Set the press to 290°F
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.
Position & Press
Place the transfer face down on the garment. Close the heat press and heat for 15 seconds.
Open the press and remove the shirt. Allow to cool completely to the touch. (This may take several minutes to cool completely.)
Peel the carrier in a smooth, even motion.
Note: The recommended time, temperature, and pressure settings are for Stahls' Hotronix® heat press machines. Settings on other heat presses may vary.
Medium/Firm 6-8 (60-80 psi)
I also need numbers for my stretchy polyester fabric; do you have Elasti Prints numbers?
Yes - Avalon, Champ Pro, Euro Pro, and Rex Pro numbers use the Elasti Prints® formula.
What do you recommend for printing on non-woven recycled materials (tote bags) and non-woven polypropylene totes?
Our Elasti Prints® work great on polypropylene tote bags.
Can I use Elasti Prints® on regular 50/50 t-shirts and sweatshirts?
You don't need to pay for the premium product if applying to 50/50, but you can.
