Tips / Application


Please check transfers carefully before heat-applying.

Set Temperature

For 100% polyester and synthetics:
Set the press to 290-320°F

For 100% cotton or cotton/poly blends:
Set the press to 340-360°F

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.

Position & Press

Place the transfer on the garment.
Cover transfer with the provided cover sheet to eliminate static.
Press for 12-15 seconds

Peel Cold

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.
