How to use Country Gone Crazy’s Printed HTV
We recommend doing a temperature/time test before you get started-especially if this is the first time using this item or if you are applying with an iron.
Heat press vinyl transfer instructions: Manufacturer recommended settings: 314 degrees for no more than 15 seconds.
***Use a Teflon sheet over the transfer. The transfer tape will not completely protect the vinyl from excess heat. Test on a scrap fabric first to figure out your needed time and iron settings since all irons and presses are different.
The cotton setting on an iron is too hot. An average iron cotton setting is around 400 degrees. The polyester or silk setting is usually around 300 degrees. If there is a distressed look, faded, smearing or the pattern looks like the inks are coming up, then the iron is too hot. It is better to start with a low temperature and add time than temperature. The enclosed transfer sheet can often be used twice (or more). Just return it to the backing after the first use.
Directions for heat press: cut pattern/color side up (like an adhesive vinyl decal, do not mirror/reverse image) and weed excess material. Do not cut through the backing. Backing can be thrown away once removed. You will only want to cut through the actual vinyl. Apply the transfer tape that we provided you on top of vinyl design. Squeegee vinyl really well on the front and back to insure that the transfer tape is securely attached. Remove backing and place design on garment, pattern up. Cover with Teflon sheet. Heat press at 314 degrees with medium pressure for no more than 15 seconds. You can press a second time if needed after your design has cooled. Peel the transfer tape off your design while it is still hot or within 5 seconds.
PLEASE NOTE: WHILE AN IRON CAN GET THE JOB DONE, A HEAT PRESS IS THE BEST EQUIPMENT TO APPLY HEAT TRANSFER VINYL.
