Heat Press Method Instructions

1. Cover the bottom table of the press with a sheet of protective paper.
2. Place substrate face down on bottom table, cover with protective paper, and pre-press for 20 seconds. Do not skip this step. After cooling, dry any remaining moisture on the substrate.
3. Secure transfer to substrate using Adhesive Spray or Heat Tape.
4. Place substrate face up, with attached transfer face down, on top of protective paper on bottom table.
5. Top with protective paper and press according to time, temperature, and pressure above.

This product will hold up to 30 lbs when:
• Attached to a wall into a stud.
• Hung with #6 or #8 drywall anchors (nails won’t hold the weight).
• Maximum weight on any single coat hook does not exceed 15lbs.
• Children should never use this as a toy.

Application note: During pressing, it is normal for trapped moisture to escape through the substrate’s edge foil. Should the edge foil come loose and flake off after transfer, this is indicative of an excessive amount of moisture within the substrate. In this instance, you will need to prepress (and cool) your substrates twice for 30 seconds each, prior to transfer. If the problem persists, contact Condé for replacement plaques.
