How to Press DTF Transfers

*Please note: Since all heat presses vary in terms of temperature and pressure, below are general guidelines.  If this is your first time ordering with us, we do recommend ordering a few extra designs for use in determining optimal temp, time and pressure for your press. A household iron will not work on these transfers.


Pre-Press garment for 5 seconds (prior to applying image), this step helps remove wrinkles and any potential moisture trapped in the fabric.

1st Press: 300-310 degrees for 10-15 seconds medium pressure with image in proper placement.  Each heat press does vary and some experimenting may be necessary for optimal results.

Peel Cold The transfer should cool completely to the touch before removing the film. (rubbing the film with cloth is recommended)

2nd Press: Cover with Teflon (for shiny look) or parchment paper (for matte look), 300-310 degrees for 5-10 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 300-310 degrees & shorten time 3-8 seconds, as these fabrics absorb heat at much faster rate. You can press multiple times if the transfer is not adhering to the fabric.

100% Polyester: Lower the temperature to 250-285 degrees & shorten press time to 3-8 seconds, this fabric can take some tweaking with your press to determine the best time, temp and pressure.  We suggest practicing to determine the proper settings.  You can press multiple times if the transfer is not adhering to the fabric, just allow the fabric time to cool in between.
