Hey guys,
I am kinda new to the heat press business.
Just need help with this.

I am using JPSS transfer paper and siser easy weed vinyl.

After I have pressed my paper transfer (JPSS) onto my tee - can i then heat press vinyl on the same tee? Or will the paper transfer burn/discolour?

Thanks for any advice. Appreciated.

Siser has a lower transfer temperature so you will be fine. Just make sure you cover your Jet Pro transfer with parchment paper or a teflon sheet so colors will not transfer to the upper platen of your heat press.

here is the procedure i would use:
(lint roll tee and pre-press for 5secs (no need to clamp it down, let the platen rest on the tee)
  • press jpss 370f for 30 secs at high pressure (so high you can barely close it)
  • peel immediately and give it a light stretch horizontally and vertically
  • set tee aside and either press the rest of your jpss, or follow below
  • lower the temp to 320f and wait, or hasten the cooling by fanning the upper platen with a piece of cardboard
  • add your htv and cover with parchment paper, press for recommended time
  • peel carrier sheet and set aside, don't stretch while hot/warm
  • once completely cool lightly stretch the jpss again, do not wash for 24 hours
