I need to press some shirts that are a bit smaller then my usual size shirts. As a result I can't hang anything off the edge of the press so all the seams end up getting pressed. This of course causes a burn to happen. Not too noticeable with white shirts but you can really tell with the black shirts. I tried covering the seams with more fabric but that just caused press lines from the edge of the extra fabric.
Besides buying a smaller heat press to accommodate smaller shirts, is there a cheat to get around this little problem.
If I have to lower my temps to fix this what temps should I now do and for how long? I don't want to risk under curing my shirts as was the problem before.
You need a teflon coated pillow to raise up the area you want to print on. This will raise the pressing area higher, and any seams will sink into the pillow...search the forum for 'teflon pillow' for more info 😉
My sheet was $160 for the "3/8 X 21 X 33 BLACK SILICONE SPONGE". So it was kind of expensive, I was scarred to cut it, but it's made my life so much easier. I know there are companies out there that sell similar pre-cut items but charge a lot more per piece.
