A few things to NOTE about sublimation and sublimation transfers:
Sublimation transfers require a HEAT PRESS to be applied. They can not be applied with an iron.
Transfers must be used on a substrate coated for sublimation (mugs,etc.) or fabric with at least 50% polyester. 100% polyester is recommended for best results. The fabric must be white or a light color such as an ash gray. The image will not show up on black or dark colors. Any other colors other than white may alter the colors when pressed.
If you are bleaching the shirt you may use any color shirt. You can sublimation before or after your bleach the shirt. The design WILL NOT bleach away. I recommend looking up Youtube videos on how to bleach.
Also, sublimation does not use white ink therefore if there is white in the design it will become the color of the fabric you apply it to (ie if there is white in the design and you press it to an ash gray shirt, that part would be ash gray)
The colors on the listing may differ from the colors on transfer. The true colors will show once pressed to the substrate.
Garment transfers will have the image reversed, this is because you will be pressing the image face down on your substrate, which will press the image the correct way (right to left)

*** If you would like another size other than what is offered here, please message me PRIOR to checkout. Thank you :)
For T-shirts- Press at 385-400 degrees for 45-60 seconds with medium pressure. Every heat press is different so I recommend getting the “Test” sheet which gives you multiple “test” designs so you can play with different heat settings and record what works best for YOU. For apparel use a 50% or higher poly count and a light colored shirt for best results. **
You will want to place a piece of butcher paper or copy paper inside the shirt, under the shirt and on top of the shirt… in addition to your teflon sheet on top before pressing. This prevents dyes from bleeding through to the back of the shirt or getting on your heat press.
do NOT move the transfer after it has been heat pressed, take it off the shirt in one swoop, dont let it move or you will get something called “Ghosting”
Some people like to use heat transfer tape, others use repositionable sticky spray… do you research! I personally use transfer tape until it's on the heat press, then I carefully take the tape off so that after its pressed I can remove it easily without any tugging (Avoiding ghosting). If you use the adhesive spray, make sure you are using one meant for sublimation and remember to spray LIGHT. Any blotches from the spray can WILL show up when pressed so again, I urge you to do your research
IF YOU ARE GETTING THE PRESSING BOX - You can try ripping the edges of the paper prior to press or reducing your pressure. If you rip the paper edges, do it by hand- do not cut. Ripping makes the edges smoother and will not leave lines in the fabric from the hard edge of the paper.
