Default Re: Did I get played by google?

I can't comment on that particular press. Either your press or temp gun (or both!) are not calibrated correctly. I'd check the temp gun against something known to be correct, and then compensate as needed (if needed) when setting your press temp. Just like how your grandma knew that the oven was 20 degrees off, or whatever, and compensated.

The teflon is intended to be used over the top of the transfer paper as you are now doing with butcher paper. You might find paper better, as you can just toss it when it gets residual ink on it, whereas the teflon you would have to wipe down and clean. Either works. A matter of what you prefer. Press time would probably need to be just a touch longer if using the teflon sheet.
