What settings are recommended for sublimating awards or plaques?

This article is from our older website archives. Some content may not be formatted or attributed properly. Please Contact Us if you feel it needs to be corrected. Thank you.

When working with awards, place in a small swing-away heat press at 385 F for 1:30 to 1:45. Plaques, on the other hand, require less time. For best results, press at 385 F for just 1:05 to 1:10. You may want heat gloves when handling these products on the heat press. Always remember to allow the product to cool before removing the transfer.
