How To Apply a DTF Transfer To Your Project*


Heat Press Instructions

Pre-Heat your Heat Press to reach 300-320 degrees.

1.  Press your item on the side you will have your design to give it a nice smooth surface.
2.  Place your DTF Transfer in the exact location you want.
Cover your DTF Transfer with Teflon or parchment paper of the same size or larger. This will help avoid your transfer from lifting.
Use your preheated Heat Press at 300-325 degrees to press down with heavy pressure for 15-20 seconds. THESE ARE A COLD PEEL, so once cooled down (about 2-3 minutes, depending on temp of the room, peel off the backing of your DTF transfer.
Do a final press of 7-10 seconds using teflon or parchment paper.

Home Iron Instructions

1.  Set your iron to the highest cotton setting without steam.
2.  Preheat your garment for a few seconds to remove any moisture and wrinkles.
3.  Place the transfer onto the garment in the exact location you want it.
Apply firm and even pressure while moving the iron in a circular motion for about 20-30 seconds. A non-slip silicone pressing mat is extremely helpful in this step.
5.  THESE ARE A COLD PEEL, so allow the transfer to cool down completely.
6.  Take a peek to see if the design has transferred.  If not, repeat steps 4 and 5 until itâ€ÃƒÆ’¢â€Ã…¾Ã‚¢s transferred onto your item.
7.  Do a final press of 7-10 seconds using teflon or parchment paper.
