Hair dryer no. Heat gun yes. A heat gun looks like an industrial hair dryer except it'll burn the skin off your face! LOL. It's going to be EXTREMELY SLOW without having a flash dryer/conveyer dryer.
x2. I'm using a heat press for my final cures as well. Using a heat gun to flash cure. I've got mine set at about 340, and press for 30 sec.A heat press works awesome. A nice smooth surface at 350 for 20 seconds. Heavy pressure. I just did 100 shirts tonight and cured each one this way. Work with what you got til you can get better.
What type of problems were you having using a press?Never had much luck using the Heat Press to final cure screen printing.
Amen to that. Actually, a 100 shirt run would be tough, especially if you tried knocking it out all at once. I am new to screen printing, have a small set up in my garage. The heat press method is slow, but effective and a cheap way to go for newbies.Ay yi yi!
I admire you guys with the patience!
Heat guns and flashes for 100 shirt runs!
I would have lost my mind. Of course it's small and easily misplaced.
