Load a Test T-shirt
If possible, slip the platen through the garment so there is only one layer of fabric on top. This will improve contact and speed things up! Otherwise, lay the garment on top of the platen, avoiding pockets and zips underneath.
- Manual Press: Tighten dial until the press won’t close. Loosen dial progressively until the press closes.
- Hotronix and Geo Knight: 8-9
- Pneumatic Press: 40-50 PSI
Pre Press: 8-10 Seconds
Prepressing releases moisture from the garment ensuring good contact. Repeat this step until there is no steam.
Position the transfer on the garment. Lay teflon sheet or parchment paper over the Supacolour.
Press 12-15 Seconds
Hot peel immediately from a corner in one smooth motion. Peel with confidence and without hesitation. Hold down tee with your free hand for better control.
Post Press 2-4 Seconds
Use a teflon sheet or parchment to seal the edges of the Supacolour.
- Important Note: Industrial wear transfers have a 6 month shelf life
- Always test press on a spoiled or old garment 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 opening the 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.
