Tips / Application

  • Remove Quick Slip Pad Protector from your heat press before pressing Puff.
  • To apply Puff transfers, thread your garment on heat press to apply to a single layer.


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 5 seconds.

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

  • Peel: hot


Are Puff screen printed transfers available in multi color?

Yes, you can order both Puff colors, white and black, on the same print. These can also be combined with other screen printed transfer colors.

Is it important to use the correct pressure when applying designs to apparel?

The key to proper application is the correct time, temperature and pressure for the material you are heat applying. If you have too much pressure, it may result in strikethrough. Not enough pressure may affect the material's adhesion.
