Dream Printz and Sublimation Printz

For Dream Printz:

5" Tall Adult Pocket
3.5" Tall Youth Pocket

Dream Printz are a transfer type made using direct to garment printers/inks (real textile inks) which are applied to a clear transfer film. They have a white underbase so they can go on dark colors, and the adhesive to apply them works on full cotton and cotton/poly blended fabrics, like Plastisol screen print transfers. This makes them a very versatile print type that works on many different shirt options. They are very light weight with a soft feel, softer than low heat plastisol screen printz and comparable to high heat soft feel plastisol screen printz.

Dream printz are very easy to apply. Follow the instructions below

Always pre press your shirt for 5 seconds to remove any moisture (this should be done with any kind of shirt transfer application)

Press on high pressure at 305-320 degrees for 8 seconds

Set aside to cool for a moment. When cool to the touch, peel the clear transfer paper

Press again at 305-320 degrees for 8 seconds, with a parchment paper or teflon sheet covering the design for protection (you don' have to cool again before removing the covering on the repress)

For Sublimation Printz:

5" Tall Adult Pocket
3.5" Tall Youth Pocket

Sublimation instructions

If you are new to sublimation please familiarize yourself with the process and application to achieve your desired results. Make sure to practice first.

For application on 50% polyester or higher materials (these DO NOT work on 100% cotton!) 100% white polyester will produce the best color results. You can use shirts that are light in color like: lt gray, tan, pastels, but know your colors will be faded. 50% poly will achieve a more faded vintage look and will lose some color in it's first wash. Do not wash inside out or the lost color may get trapped inside the shirt and stain.

1.Set your heat press to 375-400 degrees. If you find your white shirts yellow at 400, lower your temp. You can rinse in peroxide water mix to help remove any yellowing as well.

Time: 45-60 seconds

Pressure: Medium

2.Place sheets of white copy paper or parchment paper inside your shirt to prevent bleed through.

3.Position your transfer face down (use heat tape if desired) and cover with White copy paper or parchment (not wax paper, un-coated un-dyed parchment paper)

The dye turns into a gas when heated, and is absorbed into the shirt. It can also transfer to and stain the top of your press and the inside/back of your shirt if you do not use the blow out paper inside the shirt and on top of the print.

4.Press 45-60 seconds on med pressure

5.Remove transfer immediately. Don't let the print sit there, and Do not try to close and repress, the print will always shift slightly when you lift the lid and cause a ghosting/double print effect if it's not removed immediately
