The photos below highlight the Insta 728 automatic machine with 15’’x 20’’ platen.
Note: When placing a transfer on a mask for heat press application, be sure that you keep a minimum distance of 1/4 inch from the graphic to the seams of the mask. If you are too close to the seams, you will not achieve a solid bond due to inconsistent pressure.
Step by step heat press application with teflon sheet:
- Step 1: Place masks on lower platen and then place transfers in desired locations.
- Step 2: Cover with teflon sheet and then engage the heat press.
- Step 3: When fusing is complete with the Ultima transfer, peel hot.
(Application settings and steps are the same for one mask or six masks.)
