What can I do to prevent error caused by moisture when sublimating soft substrates?

To eliminate moisture in your soft substrate and eliminate any wrinkles, here are some helpful pointers that should be practiced regularly

  • Keep your paper or fabric in a dry place.
  • Place paper on the raised pedestal bottom of the press and let it dry under the heat platen. Important to note: don’t close the heat platen!
  • Pre-press fabric for 10 seconds before transferring.
  • Use a fresh, non-textured paper towel behind the transfer sheet.
