Heat Press Method Instructions

Do NOT mirror or reverse image when printing transfer.

1. Place Nomex Felt Pad on Bottom Table.
2. Cover the Nomex Felt Pad with a sheet of protective paper.
3. Use Heat Tape to attach your transfer to the un-textured side of the Cutting Board.
4. Place the Cutting Board with imaging side face up, textured side down, on top of Nomex Felt Pad and protective paper, on bottom table.
5. Cover it all with a piece of Polypoplin Fabric. and press according to time, temperature, and pressure above.
6. Cool Cutting Board face up, add feet only after board is cool.

Attaching rubber feet: Apply rubber feet to the bottom of the cutting board after it cools. Be sure to clean the application area with alcohol before affixing the feet. The feet should be compressed quite deliberately as this will break open and mix adhesive crystals suspended just behind the surface of the rubber. Do not wash, by hand or dishwasher, for a minimum of 72 hours after application, to allow the adhesive to cure.

Glass cutting boards are to be cleaned with bleach-free detergents only. Do not clean this product using bleach. If you see white paint on the face of the cutting board, scrub it off with a wire brush or a Scotch Brite Pad for Stovetops.

Application note: A wire brush can be used on the uncoated side of glass cutting boards to remove overspray. Do not use the wire brush on the coated side or the edges.
