How To Apply

DTF Transfers

Pre-Press garment for 5 seconds

1st Press: 300 degrees for 10 seconds medium pressure

Peel Cool (rubbing the film with cloth is recommended)

2nd Press: Cover with teflon or parchment paper, 300 degrees for 10 sec, medium pressure.

Note: Firm and even pressure is important for good adhesion, avoid any pocket/seams/buttons/zipper/etc. within the press area

Polyester/Blend Fabric: Lower the temperature 250-285 degrees & shorten time 3-8 seconds, as these fabrics absorb heat at much faster rate.

UV DTF Stickers
