How to Press Tees
Load a Test T-Shirt
If possible, slip the platen through the shirt so there is only one layer of fabric on top. This will improve contact and speed things up! Otherwise, lay the tee on top of the platen.
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: 5-8 Seconds
Prepressing releases moisture from the garment ensuring good contact. Repeat this step until there is no steam.
Place Supacolor transfer on the garment. Lay a teflon sheet or parchment paper over the Supacolor.
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 Supacolor.
