1. Place the Heat Resistant Felt Pad in your heat press. For best results, 4 layers are recommended. You will need to fold our ¼” thick pad over or have 4 pads. You may have a ½” Nomex pad from Geo Knight. This will suffice.
2. Dampen the 4 corners on the backside of your transfer with a lightly moistened sponge.
3. Place your transfer, face-up, on the Heat Resistant Felt Pads.
4. Place the switch plate, face-down, over the transfer. Make sure it is centered on the image. You can tape it in position at this time if you wish.
5. Close the heat press. Using medium/firm pressure, press at 400o F at correct time. Note: Presses vary. You may need more or less time depending on your press.
Open the press. CAREFUL handling the switch plate, it will be very hot. We recommend using heat resistant gloves.
