Instructions for applying transfers
Sublimation Pressing Instructions
*USE UNWAXED BUTCHER PAPER*
- Temperature: 400 degrees Fahrenheit
- Time: 60 seconds
- Pressure: Light to Medium
- Place butcher paper inside of your garment to prevent ghosting.
- Position your transfer face down (use heat tape if desired) and cover with butcher paper.
- Press for around 60 seconds with a commercial heat press. I do not advise using a iron or Cricut EasyPress.
- Remove transfer immediately. Use care when opening press and removing the paper. If it moves on the garment while opening or removing it can cause ghosting.
TIPS & TRICKS
- For application on 65% polyester or higher garment (these DO NOT work on 100% cotton!) 100% white polyester will produce the best color results.
- You can use shirts that are light in color like gray, tan, pastels, but know your colors will be faded. Tip: we love 50% polyester tees for a vintage look!
Pressing issues are uncommon, these are guidelines - you should always test with your own equipment before attempting a full project.
Instructions for pressing Direct to Film Transfer
- Try not to touch the backside of the transfer.
- When you receive the transfers you may notice some loose powder. This is normal, make sure to shake any loose powder off before transferring.
- Make sure to inspect each film before transferring.
- Heat press is REQUIRED. Please only use a commercial heat press and not an iron or Cricut EasyPress.
- Preheat garment to remove excess moisture
- Align transfer on garment
- Temperature: 315-325 degrees Fahrenheit
- Press for 15-30 seconds
- Pressure: Medium-Medium Heavy
- Allow Transfer to COOL COMPLETELY before removing clear film
**Image will be glossy if you desire a more matte finish follow the steps below**
- Lay Teflon sheet over transfer if you don't have a Teflon sheet you can use butcher paper although it may stick to transfer but it should cleanly come off (make sure butcher paper does not have wax) repress for an additional 10-15 seconds to cure onto shirt
- Wait 24 hours before washing or stretching
Pressing issues are uncommon, If your transfer attempts lifts when removing the clear film BE SURE IT IS COMPLETELY COOL BEFORE REMOVING. DTF transfers are very forgiving and can tolerate a temperature or pressing time a little longer than listed. These are guidelines - you should always test with your own equipment before attempting a full project.
