All DTF transfers require the use of a commercial grade heat press due to the high, even pressure that is needed for correct application. Home irons will not work.
While not necessary, Teflon sheets or parchment paper can be used as a protective covering when pressing. If you are pressing your DTF transfer without the clear transfer paper (such as a second press) be sure to use a teflon sheet or parchment paper to protect your heat press. Be advised that pressing pillows can negatively effect the application and these should be used at your own risk
Pressing Temperature: 300°F-325°F*
Pressing Time: 20-25 seconds*
Peel: Read the following information carefully.
Our DTF transfer paper is designed to be a hot peel, but can also be peeled warm or cold. In order to be successful with peeling your transfer hot, you will have to have perfected your ideal pressing settings. This can be difficult for some users, especially those who are new to pressing DTF transfers. If you are a beginner, or find that hot peel is not working for you, allow your transfer to cool and then peel the transfer paper. If you see any lifting, lay the transfer paper back down, repress for 10-15 seconds, allow to cool and then peel.
While it is not necessary, you can press for a second time after peeling the paper. If you choose to do this, please ensure that you use parchment paper or a teflon sheet to protect your heat press.
*These settings are recommendations only and will greatly depend on your heat press. If you are not familiar with pressing DTF transfers, we recommend completing a few test presses to ensure the correct temperature, time and pressure for your heat press.
