Sublimation Print - Hippopotamus for Christmas
Before placing an order please read the entire listing:
*This is for a sublimation transfer only.
*A heat press is needed to apply the transfer. A home iron will not work.
Garment must be at a minimum 50% polyester and light colored. This will create a vintage look. For bold, bright colors, use a WHITE, 100% polyester shirt. (Image will appear dull on the paper before pressing) You can NOT print on dark colors and/or black.
We offer 2 sizes in prints 8.5x11 or 11x17. In the notes section at checkout please list any special instructions you may have regarding size. Feel free to call us at 205-289-4361 with any questions.
As for the transfer itself, it is printed on premium paper using eco-friendly sublimation inks. Sublimation inks will bind to the polyester fibers when heat pressed.
A heat press is required (not a Cricut Easy Press) to use these transfers.
Set heat press temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Set timer to 45-55 seconds (adjustments may be needed depending on your
Set Pressure at medium.
Put parchment, copy paper or butcher paper inside the garment to ensure the ink does not bleed through the shirt to the back. Do not reuse this same paper, discard after use.
Place transfer face down on garment.
Cover with a second sheet of parchment, copy paper or butcher paper before pressing. Do not reuse this same paper, discard after use.
Press at 400 degrees F for 45-55 seconds with medium pressure.
---> NOTE: Each heat press is different. I recommend testing your press at different pressure/temperature/time settings to determine the best press for you as there are no returns or exchanges!
Remove paper immediately and peel hot. Do not reuse transfer.
****PLEASE NOTE: Sublimation transfers are not able to print white ink. Whenever you see white on the design, it will show as the color of the shirt being used. So, if you want the white on the design to show up as white when pressed, you must use a white shirt.
