Heat Press Method Instructions

1. Secure transfer to the Mug using PROSPRAY.
2. Wrap the Mug with protective paper. Portions of the Mug that come into direct contact with the DYEWRAP20 will yellow. Take care to smooth any and all wrinkles.
3. Secure the DYEWRAP20 around the Mug. Tighten DYEWRAP20 to finger tight, then give it two more turns using a common wrench.
4. Place into oven and set dwell time to time listed above.

Application notes: Be careful not to use too much pressure, it can wrinkle your transfer - use a protective cover sheet but do not reuse that sheet, it will have ink on it after one use.

Place the base of the Mug in the oven closest to the heat source.

Be sure to wrap the entire area of the substrate with protective paper, there will be a discoloration of the substrate should the wrap come into contact.

Use a fan to cool ceramic mugs or the A6000 Kool Plate. Do not dunk mugs in water. Remove transfer after mug has cooled.

Remove any paper residue with a soft wet cloth or sponge.
