Ok, first you want to preheat your garment for maybe 7-8 seconds to get the moisture out of the shirt. You want to make sure you are using the correct temp and time for the transfer paper you are using (that should be included with the paper). Make sure you are using medium pressure. If putting the arm down requires firm pressure of one arm that is medium. Two hands is heavy pressure, and a few fingers is light pressure. Most papers require immediate peel after pressing.

Having problems with transfers adhering to garment
There are several variables that go into a successful application of a transfer design onto a garment. Accurate temperature, time, pressure, and the garment all play a role in a perfect print. It is the nature of the business that, occasionally, due to one or more of the factors mentioned not being in 'sync', a transfer will not adhere properly.


If you have a transfer that is not performing properly we suggest that you take another piece of the same design and cut it into 3 or 4 pieces. Turn the shirt over that has already been damaged and try to apply one piece at a time. You might have to tweak the temperature, time, or pressure to provide a clean application. We have found that this usually solves the problem.

It is extremely important that the temperature of the heating element be periodically tested for accuracy. This can be accomplished with a heat gun that is available from us or from stores such as Home Depot. We find that inaccurate heat is one of the most frequent factors that causes a transfer to apply improperly.
