Questions & Answers
Everyone has questions. Tell us yours.
My heat press machine starts to heat but then stops. What should I check?
Verify if your machine is in the set temp or set time modes. This could be causing the heat press to stop heating.
Is it important to use the correct pressure when applying designs to garments?
The key to proper application is the correct time, temperature and pressure for the material you are heat applying. If you have too much pressure it may result in strikethrough. Not enough pressure may affect the material's adhesion.
What are some of the indications that I may need a new heat press?
One of the main indicators would be certain areas of the applied design are peeling or not adhering fully to the substrate. When this happens it is usually from having cold spots within your heating element. A Heat Press Test Kit will identify the temperature of the four corners and center of the heat press.
You may also want to verify that you are getting even pressure throughout the platen. You can do this by placing four pieces of paper at each corner and then clamping down the upper platen. You should not be able to pull out the paper easily with the platen clamped down.
Can I use a household iron to apply Stahls' products?
We do not recommend applying any of Stahls' products with a household hand iron. We suggest using a heat press with adjustable pressure settings.
