To prepare you for your soon to be heat transfer order here are a few questions that we often receive.

What is a Heat Transfer? A heat transfer is a pre-designed image that can be pressed onto your garment with high heat temperatures.

What do you need to work with a Heat Transfer? All you need is the Heat Transfer, a heat press, and your garment!

How do you apply a heat transfer?

  1. Lay the heat transfer on your garment
  2. Press it with your heat press according to the instructions listed on our website
  3. Peel the backing paper off of your design
  4. Admire your results!  

What types of heat transfers do you carry? When it comes to heat transfer designs we carry them for both adults and children so it is important to check the dimensions of the transfer. The heat transfers also come in a variety of media types from screen printed, to sequins, solar transfer, to rhinestones.

Where can I find your heat transfers? Head to our website we have them categorized by different categories. From sports to weddings to funny to children.

How To Heat Press Bumps & Bulk

Applying transfers, sublimation and HTV to a garment is simple with a heat press. As long as you know how to position your garment.

how to press

When you have a garment with buttons, zippers, pockets, or bulky seams, it can be challenging to position your garment flat on the heat press platen, which is why you would thread the garment. Threading means you put the bottom platen between the shirt so that just one layer of fabric is on the press instead of laying the garment down flat. Doing so helps you create a smooth surface to apply your design!

Want to see threading in action? Watch our past Facebook Live.

Another option besides threading is using a pressing pillow or a perfect pad.

When you use a pressing pillow you insert the pillow into the garment, so that the bulky obstacles sinks into the pillow (for instance a zipper won’t stick out causing printing issues) and eliminate the pressure points creating a smooth area.

Sof-fusion pressing pillows

Whereas when you use a Perfect Pad it raises the printing area to work around the bulky elements. When using the pad it should be inserted directly under the area where the design will go, and not under any zippers, buttons, seams or anything creating an uneven surface because the Perfect Pads purpose is to maintain even pressure.

 

Now that you know how to press bumps and bulk what are you going to press?
