How to Apply & Maintain Transfers



Temperatures vary by design due to the difference in screen print formulas – see website for specifics by item.

We do not recommend using Teflon sheets or bonnets (which are placed on or around the heating platen). Doing so can cause the transfer to be applied below the stated temperature on press by as much as 30°.
PRESSURE, PRESSURE, PRESSURE – our transfers will give you a quality and long-lasting product, but you HAVE to ensure you are using adequate and even pressure. This will ensure the formula properly adheres to your garment. Not using enough pressure can result in poorly applied plastisol transfers and quality issues in the future (cracking, peeling, lifting, etc).
Please note that every heat press is different! Temperature and pressure are not always accurate or even, therefore adjusting for your individual press may be necessary and should be a part of your routine maintenance.
After pressing, peel slowly. It should peel effortlessly however if the transfer is sticking, increase your heat and/or time accordingly and press it again until it peels easily.
Tips to Prevent Cracking: We recommend pre-press for 5-7 seconds to remove moisture and wrinkles. Make sure you are using adequate temperature and pressure as noted.
Washing Instructions:
Do not wash or dry for at least 24 hours after pressing
Turn garment inside out
Machine wash cold, regular or gentle cycle
Hang to dry or tumble dry low heat (I pull and hang before dry)
No bleach
No fabric softener
Do not iron on or around image
Do not dry clean

Our DTF transfers are now HOT PEEL
• Pre-press garment 5-10 seconds
• Press transfer onto garment with medium-heavy pressure*
• Cover your DTF print with parchment or teflon for 2nd press***
The times listed are suggestions for a commercial press For economy presses time and temp MAY vary *Pressure med-heavy depending on garment **If transfer does not peel hot or if there are a lot of fine details, allow transfer to cool off ***Always 2nd press for at least half the time or 5-10 seconds

For Garments (tumbler transfers vary by equipment) - 
If you are new to sublimation please get acquainted with the process and application to achieve your desired results. It’s always a good idea to research and practice first!
Sublimation transfers are for white or light colored garments and textiles with 50% or higher polyester count. The higher the count, the brighter the image will be. Sublimation DOES NOT work on 100% cotton.
• Heat your press to 400°, medium pressure
• Prepress to ensure garment is free of moisture, lint and wrinkles
• Place kraft or copy paper inside shirt to prevent ink bleed through
• Position sub face down and secure with heat tape, if desired (I recommend cutting or tearing the sub as close to the design to reduce transfer sheet marks).
• Cover sub with parchment paper
• Press: 60 seconds
• Remove transfer immediately to avoid ghosting.
*Actual product colors MAY vary from mock up photo due to device display capabilities and monitor settings. Every print is different and has different color variations, especially in the watercolor graphics and/or after heat pressing. Please be aware of this before purchase as we DO NOT accept returns or exchanges for our products. We are not responsible for transfers that are pressed incorrectly. Please make sure you are using the correct material, color, and press settings prior to pressing your transfer.
