Default Heat Pressing Nylon Jacket

Hi I'm customizing some nylon jackets ("bomber/flight jackets from Alpha Industries - http://www.alphaindustries.com/mens-flight-jackets/alpha-industries-ma-1-slim-fit-flight-jacket.htm") and I notice some of the vinyl starts peeling right away, and you can even see some of the glue from the vinyl left behind. I know that there's a big difference heat pressing nylon than cotton, but I'm wondering if there's any techniques, or best practices when heat-pressing nylon. Also, is there a certain type of vinyl I should buy?

Thanks.

You need a vinyl for nylon. We don't do nylon for that reason.

Nylon | Cut-Only Heat Transfer Vinyl | Imprintables Warehouse

What Binki said... unless you are doing a lot of them, it's not worth it trying to do vinyl on nylon,
they can be a real PITA at times.
