Questions & Answers

Everyone has questions. Tell us yours.

Can I apply heat transfer materials to items that have zippers, buttons, or heavy seams?
Yes. Using a Heat Printing Pillow or Print Perfect Pad will ensure even pressure when working around zippers, buttons, heavy seams, or mesh reversible jerseys.
When I press two-color numbers (pre-cut Thermo-FILM) onto a uniform the top number will come off after a few washes. Is there something I can do to prevent that?
Under-application is the main cause of a foreground falling off of a background. Over-application is not usually the cause. Proper application is: background at 330 degrees for 2 seconds medium pressure, then foreground at 330 degrees for 8-10 seconds at medium pressure.
What is the PMS color of Thermo-FILM?
You can find the Pantone® colors (or PMS color) on the Thermo-FILM® product page.
What product should I use for application to polypropylene bags?
Our recommended heat transfer materials for polypropylene are Premium Plus and Express Print. Both have been tested and approved for successful application by our labs.
Can I heat apply onto sublimated jerseys?
Yes, we recommend doing so using Thermo-FILM® at a reduced temperature. Thermo-FILM will block any dye migration. Thermo-FLOCK® is also a suitable choice.
What product is best for application to sublimated garments?
Thermo-FILM® is the #1 recommended product for blocking dye migration on sports uniforms. Thermo-GRIP® and Thermo-FLOCK® offer superior blocking of dye migration as well.

All have a special adhesive that blocks the dye from penetrating through to the surface of the film or flock fibers.

For full color designs, try Sub Block. It's specifically made to block dye migration from sublimated polyester fabrics.
I order materials by the yard, but the rolls are too long for my GX-24. Did I do something wrong?
You should be using CAD-CUT® heat transfer material with your vinyl cutter. These materials have a clear carrier and the widths are compatible with the GX-24.

Materials By the Yard are rolls that must be hand cut or used with a flatbed cutter. This material does not have a carrier backing and is typically too long for a vinyl cutter.
