- 12-15 seconds
Load a Test Fleece
If possible, slip the platen through the shirt so there is only one layer of fabric on top. Otherwise, lay shirt on top of the platen. Avoid pockets if possible.
- 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. This is very important when pressing Fleece. Repeat this step if there is no steam.
Position the transfer on the garment. Lay teflon sheet or parchment paper over the Supacolour. Keep print away from pockets and collar.
Press 12-15 Seconds
Hot peel immediately from a corner in one smooth motion. Peel with confidence and without hesitation. Hold down garment 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.
- Always test press on a spoiled or old fleece 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, keep transfer a clear distance from pockets and seams.
- 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.
