Being lazy, I use the same time for the repress as I did on the original. You can get different vinyl surface looks by picking a parchment with the surface you desire, e.g., gloss, semi gloss. or patterned. Repressing is definitely worth doing for both the look and better adhesion to the fabric.

Thanks. Didn't even think of that, since I just bought a Geo Knight automatic release timer. Not sure if I can have two different times programmed in. Havent used yet.
My flatbed press is an auto release also, so it is simpler to repress with the same settings. I have never harmed a garment or hat doing a repress. My hat press is not auto release, but I still use the same settings for the repress.

are you still talking about jpss, because it is more of a glue than a vinyl like 3g?

i did not know parchment paper came in different surfaces, do you mean teflon?

i'm surprised there is not any damage to the fibers or smoke/fire after a minute of 375f pressing
assuming you do a hot peel, then re-press right away
I'm talking about vinyl only. 300 to 310 degrees at 10 to 12 seconds. I have found parchments with different surfaces in the cooking section of stores. I only mentioned parchment as it was brought up. I almost exclusively use Teflon, and have a collection of old Teflon sheets with varying surfaces. The new Teflon sheets are usually just smooth, but after lots of use vary a lot.
