**** Times, temperature, and pressure may vary slightly
with different heat presses ****
DTF - Heat press temperature should be set to Polyester
and Polyester Blends 285-Cotton 300 F.
Prior to heat pressing, hover the heat press over the
transfer INK SIDE UP as close as you can without touching
the transfer and allow the transfer to warm up for 30-60
seconds and this process will remove moisture from the
transfer. This moisture in the ink builds up during the
mailing process.
After the transfer is warmed up, it is ready for step 2.
Use Medium to heavy Pressure to press the moisture out
of your shirt and then press the transfer on the shirt for
15 seconds, let cool completely and peel.
If there are small elements in the design, let it cool
completely before removing the transfer film.
Use a cover sheet (Teflon or white butcher paper/copier
paper) after you’ve peeled the transfer, press again for 5-
10 seconds.
If printing small print or small text, press for 20 seconds
using heavy pressure and let the transfer cool a bit before
peeling. If for any reason that the print begins to lift off
the shirt, usually due to an inexpensive heat press Don’t
freak out, STOP PEELING AND PRESS IT AGAIN. Most likely
your heat press has uneven pressure and heat.
