Supacolour Wearable Transfer

How to Press Tees Like a Supastar

(100% Cotton or Blends)


Temperature of Heat Press

Set Temperature & Time

  • 160°C (320°F)
  • 12-15 seconds


Load a Test T-shirt

If possible, slip the platen through the shirt so there is only one layer of fabric on top. This will improve contact and speed things up! Otherwise, lay the tee on top of the platen.


Set Pressure

  • Manual Press: Tighten dial until the press won’t close. Loosen dial progressively until the press closes.
  • Hotronix and Geo Knight: 8-9
  • Pneumatic Press: 40-50 PSI


Pre-Press: 5 – 8 Seconds

Prepressing releases moisture from the garment ensuring good contact. Repeat this step until there is no steam.


Place Supacolour

Place Supacolour transfer on the garment. Lay a teflon sheet or parchment paper over the Supacolour.


Press 12 – 15 Seconds


Peel Immediately

Hot peel immediately from a corner in one smooth motion. Peel with confidence and without hesitation. Hold down tee with your free hand for better control.


Post-Press: 2 – 4 Seconds

Use a teflon sheet or parchment to seal the edges of the Supacolour.

  • Always test press on a spoiled or old tee 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.
  • These instructions are your default starting point, settings may vary for different garments and presses.
