APPLICATION/ PRESSING INSTRUCTIONS

SCREEN PRINT TRANSFER PRESSING INSTRUCTIONS:

  • You MUST have a heat press!!
  • Plastisol Screen Print Transfer Can Go On ANY Color. We recommend 100% cotton for HIGH HEAT Screens, but any cotton blend will work.

How To apply transfers:

1.No Teflon Sheets, covers, or pillows EVER! They dissipate the heat too much resulting in poorly applied transfers.

2. Pressure, Pressure, Pressure!- Making sure your heat press is giving lots of HEAVY and EVEN pressure is very important! . Make sure your pressure is set to High (8-9 manual. 60PSI automatic)

3. Set your heat press settings:

  • 325 Degrees for LOW HEAT
  • 360-375 for HIGH HEAT
  • HIGH HEAT IS LABELED ON THE DESCRIPTIONS. CHECK YOUR INVOICE!!

4. Press your shirt for 5-10 seconds to get any moisture and wrinkles out.

5. Transfer for 8-10 seconds-(side note-I personally press down on the top of the heat press and press while the lid is closed to ensure I am getting pressure on every part of the transfer.

6. Open The Press and HOT PEEL your transfer. I like to check a small corner first before completely peeling to ensure the transfer is completely pressed in. If I see any lifting I will put the transfer paper back down AND ADD MORE PRESSRE!! I will press again a few seconds and try peeling again.

  • A TRANSFER NOT PEELING FROM THE TRANSFER SHEET IS TYPICALLY DUE TO TOO LITTLE PRESSURE. IF PRESSURE IS UP, CHECK YOUR PRESS WITH A HEAT GUN FOR ACCURATE TEMP.
  • IF YOU ADD MORE HEAT, DO SO AT 5 INCRIMENTS AT A TIME.

COLOR FADING- IF YOU FIND YOUR PRINT COLOR FADED ON A FULL COLOR TRANSFER, YOUR TEMPERATURE IS TOO HIGH. DROP TO 360 AND USE A HEAT GUN TO MAKE SURE YOUR HEAT PRESS PLATE IS READING THE SAME TEMPERATURE ACROSS THE PLATE

SUBLIMATION TRANSFER PRESSING INSTRUCTIONS:

This is what works for me but there might be another way that works best for you.

  • Make sure your shirt is light colored with at least 65% or more polyester: The more polyester the brighter the colors will be. 50% will be a vintage/faded look.
  • Turn your press on 385F. Press on MEDIUM pressure
  • Place parchment paper in your shirt (the ink can flow through your top layer and onto the heat press or your back side of your shirt (depending on how your are laying your shirt on the press).
  • Place your design on your shirt. Add parchment paper on top of your shirt and transfer so no ink transfers to your heat press.
  • Press for 50-70 SECONDS. Once completed lift transfer.

MUG, TUMBLER, AND KOOZIE SUBLIMATION INSTRUCTIONS:

  • MUGS, TUMBLERS, AND KOOZIES MUST HAVE A POLY-COATING.
  • Koozie temperatures are typically set at 385 degrees for 30 seconds. Lift a small corner to ensure transfer before completely lifting
  • Tumbler and Mug sizing can vary. Place template design on your mug and adjust the image as needed before adding your heat safe tape to hold in place.. If needed, cut the template in half and tape both sides in place.
  • Please refer to your tumbler and mug manufacturer sublimation instructions. As with shirts, time (1-3 minutes) and temperatures (350-385) can vary.

TIPS I’VE PERSONALLY LEARNED OVER TIME:

  • Be sure to carefully/slowly open and close your heat press to make sure your transfer doesn't move or you will get a shadow on your shirt which is called "ghosting".
  • Before fully lifting your image, slowly lift one corner to check the image transfer. If it is not at the color I’m shooting for, I’ll lower and press again. BE CAREFUL DOING THIS TO AVOID SHADOWS!!
  • Getting lines on your shirt from your transfers? Heat Press pressure is your issue. Until you find your sweet spot, you can rip around the transfer image so it is not a perfect square.
  • I personally spray ALL my shirts with Poly-T spray from Dye Press. There are other poly spray options out there, this is just my favorite. Some people don’t care for the poly sprays, but I find it makes a HUGE difference in image color. Especially on lower polyester count and colored shirts.
  • If you see yellowing on your shirt, your heat press is too hot. Many times, spraying hydrogen peroxide or even a 50/50 water peroxide spray will lift the yellowing. Sometimes you’ve just completely scorched the shirt and it won’t lift.
