Heat Press Method Instructions

1. Lay down protective paper on the heat press platen.
2. Lay down your panel image side face up and use Adhesive Spray to attach the transfer.
3. Cover with another sheet of protective paper and press.
4. After removing from the press, immediately turn over the ornament and cool under a heavy weight to minimize warping.

For all Natural Wood edged products, set bleed to .1" to prevent dye from appearing on the sides of the product. Use a Magic Eraser by Mr Clean® to clean up any mistakes on the edging.

Another good way to do it is to apply an outer edge of tan color to each image, that will imprint tan.

OUR INSTRUCTIONS ARE BASED ON USING A DK20S, DK3110 AND/OR A COUNTER TOP CONVECTION OVEN. TIMES AND TEMPERATURES WILL VARY DEPENDING ON WHICH EQUIPMENT YOU USE.
