  • Always test press on a spoiled or old garment to dial in your press before pressing your production.
  • Supacolour always gives you spares so you can dial in your press.
  • Supacolour not sticking when you peel? Increase pressure and peel quickly within 2 seconds of opening the press.
  • Still won’t peel easily? Repress for 4 seconds then try from a different corner.
