Supacolour Mask Transfer

How to Press Masks Like a Supastar


Set Temperature and Time

  • Cotton 300 – 320F (150-160C)
  • Polyester 290-300F (140-150C)


Load a Test Mask

Lay on the platen so only one layer or smooth out if multilayer – use smallest platen if possible or build up in the center of the press or use a Hat Press to avoid seams.


Set Pressure

  • Manual Press: Tighten dial until the press won’t close. Loosen dial progressively until the press closes. Use less pressure on polyester.
  • Hotronix Hat Press: 8-9.
  • Hotronix and Geo Knight: 7-8
  • Pneumatic Press: 35-40 PSI


Pre Press 5 Seconds (Cotton Only)

Pre press 5 seconds for cotton to release moisture from the garment. No pre press for polyester.


Place Supacolour

Position the transfer on the garment. Lay teflon sheet or parchment paper over the Supacolour.


Press 8-12 Seconds


Peel Immediately

Hot peel immediately from a corner in one smooth motion. Peel with confidence and without hesitation.


Post-Press: 2 Seconds

Use a teflon sheet or parchment to seal the edges of the Supacolour.

  • Always test press on a spoiled mask to dial in your press before pressing your production.
  • Supacolour always gives you spares so you can dial in your press.
  • Supacolour not sticking when you peel? Increase pressure and peel quickly within 2 seconds of lifting press.
  • Still won’t peel easily? Repress for 4 seconds then try from a different corner.
  • These instructions are your default starting point, settings may vary for different garments and presses.
