That is probably acceptable for dye subilmation but that is very low pressure for a plastisol transfer.

The formula recommends the temp to be at 325 degress, and press for 7 seconds. i did just that. The transfer applied perfectly, minus the scorch marks. Has anyone pressed these on poly at a lower temp? Does it adhere fine and take a washing fine? I have a large order to fill, and don't want to ruin all the shirts. Thanks in advance.
I was getting scorch marks on poly and poly/cotton blends as well. I tried several methods but was not getting the quality I wanted. I use a hotronix 16x20 press and bought the lower heated platen and control unit. Since I started using that, I've had "0" scorching issues. The system is pricey (about $900) but it's paid for itself several times over.

It's best to follow the transfer pressing instructions. Have you checked the heat platen with a Digital Pyrometer w/Surface Probe Kit? Your press may be running hot. Did/do the garments contain sunscreen protection? Sunscreen, UV and waterproof/repellent coating can/do scorch. When in doubt TEST, TEST and TEST some more yourself, never totally rely on another person's expertise. No one knows your equipment and setup better than you. Truth be told, most of the common problems experienced with heat transfers are operator error. Speaking from 45+ years of heat transfer decorating experience Good Luck & Keep On Pressing!

I know this is an old post but what brand and model of shirts were those?

I'm going to be pressing some soccer shirts with 613 transfers soon.
