Ready To Press Heat Transfers are Great For:

This design can be just about any size, it can utilize all different colors, and it can also feature unique textures and effects. Ugly Duck Printing offers heat transfer for a long list of apparel, jackets, hats, bags and more. You can create just about any design, and Ugly Duck Printing will create your custom heat transfer! Prefect for a DIY project!
If you are looking for a shirt, sweatshirt, bag or any other unique item that stands out and gets attention, heat transfer is a great option. To learn more, contact Ugly Duck Printing today!
1.) Place the textile/substrate on the lower platen of the heat press. Pre-press it for 5-10 seconds to remove any wrinkles or moisture.
2.) Using a finishing sheet or parchment paper for protection, press the transfer following the guidelines below for the suggested temperature setting:
320°F 45 sec. 5 med. pressure
320°F 30 sec. 5 med. pressure
270°F 20 sec. 5 med. pressure
230°F 10 sec. 5 med. pressure
230°F 15 sec. 5 med. pressure °F
3.) Carefully remove the textile/substrate from the heat press and allow to cool before peeling away the A-Film. Only remove the A-Film after it is absolutely cold. Failure to do so may result in a faulty transfer. Start from a corner with the most toner coverage and remove the A-Film in one, rapid motion (like a bandage).
4.) To ensure wash-ability and a matte finish, re-press your textile/substrate with a piece of parchment paper
for 20 seconds and at the same temperature you used from Step 10 above. The pressure should be bumped up to a high pressure (a 8 or 9). To achieve a more shiny finish, use a Teflon sheet instead of parchment paper. To achieve a more textured finish, use the Flexible Finishing Sheet instead of parchment paper.
