Tips / Application

  • Best for large, solid areas of ink.
  • Super White Hot Split has good opacity for fashion apparel, but for an athletic white use Goof Proof® or Polytrans.


Please check transfers carefully before heat-applying. An extra transfer is included for testing.

Pre-Heat Garment

First, place the garment on platen, heat press for 3-5 seconds or until there is no more steam to remove wrinkles and moisture. Ensure there are no obstructions such as buttons, pockets, or seams. If there are, raise only the print area with a Print Perfect Pad.

Position & Press

Place the transfer face down on the garment. Close the heat press and heat for 8-10 seconds.

The recommended time, temperature, and pressure settings are for Stahls' Hotronix® heat press machines. Settings on other heat presses may vary.

  • Time: 8-10 Seconds
  • Temperature: 360°F - 370°F
  • Pressure: medium
  • Peel: hot


Which ink formula should I use?

All three of our products work on cotton, polyester, or a cotton/poly blend. The choice is based on the feel of the product. More information can be found here. • Hot Split has a lighter, softer feel. It also allows you to do more with multi colors. Hot Split gold, yellow, tan and neon ink colors do not work on dark garments. All other ink colors will work on all other colors. • Goof Proof® is your choice for a heavier feel. If using white, gold or yellow ink on a dark garment, we recommend Goof Proof for the heavier feel and opacity. • Polytrans uses the same ink and adhesive as Goof Proof but is best used if you need to apply at a lower temperature. • Use Elasti Prints™ formula for garments that stretch.

What is the shelf life of your transfers?

The transfers have indefinite shelf life when stored in proper conditions. It is not recommended storing them in areas with high humidity or high temperature.

On what types of fabrics can screen printed transfers be applied?

Screen printed transfers can be applied to cotton, polyester, or poly/cotton blends.

I was wondering if I can get Hot Split transfers with something like a photo that isn't just flat colors?

We can make a transfer from a photo, but not Hot Split. For photo replication, we recommend our UltraColor Soft transfer.
