Pressing Temperature Guide for Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) Siser And Thermoflex

General Temperature Guidelines

Typically, for HTV you will be using a temperature between 305°-320°F for 15-20 seconds. I usually use do mine at 323°F for 15 seconds, Peel off the carrier paper, and press for an additional 10 seconds.

However, I am usually working with the ThermoFlex Plus and I have arrived at that process by experimenting with my equipment and materials. You may need to do a little bit of experimenting of your own, but I have created a guide to get you started. Below you will find a table of manufacturers, products, and their recommended heat and press times. I have also included a instructional video at the end to show you my process.
