Garment care after application:
Turn inside out.
Wash in cold water (mild detergent if possible)
Remove promptly and dry on low.

*Please note that transfer paper DOES have a shelf life; it lasts about 1 year depending upon storage. It must be kept sealed in a plastic bag. High humidity or dry conditions can shorten its shelf life.

Cotton Transfer Policy: By purchasing you agree that you understand the process for application of our transfers. We will not refund transfer purchases due to user errors. We will however replace defective transfers before they have been applied. We will request photos of such defects to approve these claims and all claims must be handled through your order on the website under returns. These are a no refunds/final sale item with the exception of defects before application.

HEAT PRESS APPLICATION:

*MUST USE A TEFLON SHEET*

1. Set your heat press to 375 degrees.

2. Place the garment on the heat press, and position the transfer with the image facing down.

3. Place Teflon sheet over entire transfer.

4. Press transfer 375 degrees for 30 seconds

5. Peel HOT in an even motion. Immediately stretch the garment from top to bottom and side to side.

These look best after the first one or two washes! Make sure you let your customers know that when supplying a finished product.

HAND IRON APPLICATION:

You will need a hand iron (no steam) & a hard, smooth surface (do not use an ironing board) covered with a pillowcase or smooth textile.

*MUST USE A TEFLON SHEET*

1. Preheat iron to the ‘Linen’ or highest heat setting.

2. Place the garment on the textile covered hard surface and pre-iron to remove wrinkles. Position your transfer face down.

3. Place Teflon sheet over entire transfer.

4. Using 2 hands and heavy pressure, slide the iron up and down (vertically) over the entire image for 90 seconds, then repeat going from left to right (horizontally) for 90 seconds.

5. Peel HOT in an even motion. Immediately stretch the garment from top to bottom and side to side.

These look best after the first one or two washes! Make sure you let your customers know that when supplying a finished product.

*IMPORTANT: Due to variations in garments, heat presses and irons these settings may vary. For best results, test different time/temperature combinations to find one that works best with your garment/heat press combination. Please note, higher temperatures generally require less time to prevent scorching. An insufficient time/temperature combination may hinder the transfer from completely curing to the cotton fibers, thus resulting in wash out.
