The beauty of Teflon sheets is that they are meant to protect your heat press. So the good news is your expensive press is still in good shape and you can fix the Teflon sheet! A great feature of sublimation ink is that once it’s re-activated at 375-400 degrees, the ink will lift off. Using either a cotton fabric or even copy paper, place the item onto the Teflon and press for 30 seconds at 375-400 degrees; if there is still ink left, continue and wipe away as quickly as possible once lifting the press each time.
