Tips For Heat Printing Footwear
« on: March 05, 2015, 11:38:54 AM »
Decorating a wide range of footwear with your heat press is fast and easy. The shoe platen, one of several specialty platens available from Hotronix®, makes it possible. Here are a few tips for maximizing your success.

* Check to make sure the shoe platen is compatible with your heat press.

* For best results, use a heat transfer material with a pressure-sensitive carrier. The tacky backing will keep the design in place during heat printing. Thermal tape also may be used to hold small designs in place.

* Use a silicone cover sheet to protect the surface of the shoe during heat application.

* When using a silicone cover sheet, add a few seconds to the dwell time for best results.
