Direct To Film Transfer Pressing Instructions
Heat Press is REQUIRED.
It is important to know not all heat presses are alike, temperatures may vary and uneven temperatures during pressing may occur.
Best practice is to preheat garment to remove excess moisture
Our film can be peeled hot or cold.
For Hot Peel:
- Align transfer and Press at 285 degrees for 10-12 seconds.
-Peel immediately! while keeping fabric taught. It should peel away from the fabric very smoothly.
-Cover with parchment and finish press for 5 seconds to cure into the fabric.
Troubleshooting Hot Peel: Common issues are caused by uneven temps on the press. Uneven Temps cause cool spots on the film. There will be resistance when attempting a hot peel if there are cool spots. If there is resistance during the peel DO NOT pull. Re-press for 3 seconds and attempt to peel again. If there is still resistance then wait until completely cooled, then peel. . You can also resolve this by increasing your pressure.
For Cold Peel:
-Align Transfer and Press at 285 degrees for 10-15 seconds.
-Allow Transfer to COOL COMPLETELY before removing clear film
-Cover with parchment and re-press for 5 seconds to cure into the fabric.
It is best practice to wait 24 hours before washing or stretching
Trouble shooting Cold Peel Film:
BE SURE IT IS COMPLETELY COOL BEFORE ATTEMPTING REMOVAL! Although pressing issues are uncommon, If your transfer attempts to lift when removing the clear film, press it again for 2-5 seconds. You may need to increase your heat by 10 degrees, pressing time by 2-3 seconds or pressure dependent on your press. Digital 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.
These are instructions from the Manufacturer and have worked for me personally! You have to figure out your press and what works best for it. Pressure and heat! There are no refunds or exchanges for operator error!
