The following instructions are a general guideline and may not apply to all of our heat transfer papers.
Please review the product instructions of the individual paper you are using for complete details.

General Guidelines:
Preparing Your Image

  • Make sure your image is in reflection or mirror image before printing (not applicable for Opaque transfer papers or 'colour copier' transfer paper).
  • It is not necessary to print your image with oversaturated colours as it will not enhance the quality of the image in most cases*.
  • Print image on coated side of transfer paper. The reserve side will have grids or lines.
  • Allow drying time before handling.
  • Trim your transfer with a paper trimmer or scissors.

Heat Press Application

  • Preheat your press.  Use the temperature guidelines provided with the heat transfer paper you will be using.
  • For best results, pre-heat garment for a few seconds to remove wrinkles.  Allow garment to cool.
  • Most transfer papers require you to place your printed transfer image face down onto fabric and press for approx 15-20 seconds (see your heat press manual and transfer paper for exact timing).
  • Check your transfer paper instructions to indicate if you can peel the transfer hot or if it requires to be completely cooled down.

Hand Iron Application

  • Not all transfer papers are compatible with using a hand iron application.  Consult your heat transfer paper for instructions.
  • Preheat your iron to the highest setting without steam.
  • Before beginning, make sure you have a smooth dry surface for ironing. 
  • It is recommended to use a hard, smooth and non-porous surface under your garment, not an ironing board.
  • Position the transfer paper image side down onto the garment.
  • Using firm pressure, slowly run the iron over the entire surface evenly ensuring you overlap areas for approx 2-5 minutes (depending on your individual transfer paper).
  • Check your transfer paper instructions to indicate if you can peel the transfer hot or if it requires to be completely cooled down.

Washing Instructions

  • Turn your garment inside out when placing in the washer.
  • We do not recommend using a dryer as this will shorten the lifespan quality of the transferred image.
  • Wash according to the garments fabric instructions.
  • Do not bleach.

Storing Your Transfer Paper

  • Store unused transfer paper in a flat, dry, cool area in a sealed bag to prevent moisture.
