Heat Press Method Instructions



1. Stretch the sock onto the jig. Smooth it so there are no bunched areas.
2. Use Adhesive Spray or heat tape to secure the transfer to one side of the sock.
3. Place the sock, jig and transfer on protective paper on your heat press, letting the top area of the jig hang off the press.
4. Cover with protective paper and use the settings above to press.
5. Remove the used transfer and flip the sock and jig over and repeat the same instructions to imprint the other side.

Note: Socks decorated with the jig may show a white line on the jig edges. To help with that, it is suggested that when you do the second side, pull the material over the edges a little bit. Grasp the socks along the jig and slightly pull the already sublimated area forward so you can see the line of imprinting all along your jig. Doing the second side should fill the gaps. Experiment until you get the hang of it.
