DTF Transfer Pressing Instructions

Given the variability in heat presses, including temperature and pressure settings, adjustments tailored to your specific press are often necessary.

It is also important to exercise caution when pressing transfers, ensuring you are knowledgeable about your application and peeling technique.

Avoid using non-commercial grade heat presses or irons with our transfers. We recommend employing a heat gun to verify temperature and conducting a pressure test before pressing.

If this is your first time ordering from us, we recommend acquiring a few extra designs to determine the optimal settings mentioned above.

Pressing Instructions:

Preheat the garment to eliminate excess moisture

Align the transfer on your garment in the appropriate position glue side down.

Temperature: 320 degrees Fahrenheit

Time: 15 seconds

Pressure: Heavy (8-9 manual) 60PSI Automatic

Allow the transfer to cool to the touch for approx. 15-30 seconds before removing the clear film

Place protective covering of your choice (Parchment Paper, Butcher Paper, Protective Pads etc.) over the design and repress for an additional 15 seconds to ensure it cures into the shirt.

Wait 24 hours before washing or stretching the garment.

Pro Tip! Try placing a single layer of t-shirt material over the design on your second press to soften the design, increase durability, and remove shine. If you want a shiny finish, cover with a protective guard sheet or butcher paper for the final press.
