• Heat resistant tape or spray adhesive which is preferred
• Oven mitt or heat-resistant gloves (for removing product from heat press)
• Thermal Rubber Mat, 1/16” thick (a thicker mat may require a longer pressing time)
Note: If you did not purchase a transfer support from us, you can make one yourself by cutting
a piece of wood to fit easily inside the lid of each tin.

Step 1: Adjust the Heat Press for height. Do NOT use felt pad on the heat press
For best results, always pre-heat your press.

Step 2: Design & Print Your Transfer
1. Scan and open your image.
2. The gift tins come in different sizes. For best results, the transfers should be slightly larger
than the surface of the lid. You may size the image to bleed off the lid.

Step 3: Transfer the Image
1. Place the press support on a heat press.
2. Pre-adjust the heat press for the correct height.

Transfer Tips, Techniques & Troubleshooting
• If you are printing an image without a bleed, print an outline slightly larger than the size of the tin to help you register the position of the design on the lid.
• Prints light in places:
a. Check your time and temperature. You should be pressing at 385 - 400o F for 1.75 - 2
minutes with a 1/16” thermal rubber mat. Lightness may be caused by too much time or heat
(burnout) as well as too little time or heat. Try adjusting the temp or pressing time.
b. Check your pressure. Your press may have a “cold” or worn spot. Try increasing pressure
and/or moving the tin to the left or right.
c. Make sure your rubber mat is not worn out from previous pressings.
• The outside edges print light:
d. Check to make sure you are using medium pressure.
e. Make sure you have placed the gift tin lid in the center of the press.
f. Make sure you don’t have any felt pad under the press support.
