This may sound like a stupid question but what's pre-pressing shirts before transferring all about?
---how come?
---how hot?
---how long?
---I'm assuming it's done in the heat press. True?
---does the shirt need to cool before applying transfer?

Thanks in advance.

It's done to remove excess moisture from the shirt - the shirt has some water content in it when you receive it, and it's best to remove what you can of that to get a better adherence with the transfer.

Memory suggests 8 seconds at 375f and that you don't need to let the shirt cool down, but I know that information is posted somewhere on the forums and I don't heat press shirts, so it would probably be worth searching the forums before trying that.
