You Need:

3 – Turn on your Heat Press. We set the temperature on our Trans Pro to 400 degrees.

4 – Figure out where you need the design (this depends on what you are making). If you are making a hair bow you will need to print on different sides of the ribbon – see  this article!

5 – Adhere your sublimation printer to your ribbon. We used Adhesive Spray to hold the design in place!

6 – Press your design for 60 seconds and peel hot!
