Test the Application
Test the application with the sample iron-on we sent you using the application instructions for that specific transfer type. We package the transfer with the equivelent application instructions and tester.
These iron-on transfers are quick and easy to apply. If they are not working well for you, one ore more little adjustments need to be tested until they are perfect.
Lets start with the following check list.
Is the iron you are using heating up to the necessary temperature?
Have you tried a different iron?
Does the iron have a cotton setting? if so please use it.
Is it set to the setting temperature?
Are you applying the correct pressure?
Iron with up and down motion, using downward force regulated as (medium) or (hard). Do not iron from side to side.
Try to press it on evenly, do not stop and try to give every area of the transfer the same equal heat and pressure. More important with larger transfers than the iron platten.
Press/Iron the transfer according to its application setting. You may need to decrease or increase the press time in seconds to get it perfect.
The peel off the transfer paper is important. Be sure to follow the recommended peel of and practice if you need.
If you start to peel off thje transfer paper and the ink is not sticking. STOP. Re-heat and press down the transfer again and increase the settings a little. Heat, press time and pressure.
Ok, give it a try.
