Heat Pressing imprints a design or graphic directly onto the material, such as a jersey or t-shirt, using transfer paper and a heat press machine.This process uses the application of heat and pressure to ensure a proper transfer. The pattern is printed in sublimating ink on sublimating paper which allows the pattern to transfer.
Basically, a garment is placed in the machine and transfer paper with the design is placed face-down over the shirt. The heating unit is brought down over them for a prescribed time to print the image on the garment.
