Tips / Application
Please check transfers carefully before heat-applying.
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
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
Open the press and remove the shirt. Allow to cool completely to the touch. (This may take several minutes to cool completely.)
