My sister is an award winning dog groomer, and recently struck out on her own as self-employed. I’ve made some sweatshirts and T-shirts with her new logo on them but she asked me to make this particular T, and of course I could not refuse!
- f = 28
- v = 300
- mat = 2/3 Aleenes + 1/3 water
- Cut in reverse, glossy side (the carrier) down on mat, tape if needed
- Press at 330-335°F for 17-20 seconds
- Select fonts and create lettering.
- Download free images and trace. Black out for silhouettes only.
- Cut vinyl using the settings above for a Maxx Air. For other models, check the appropriate materials reference guide.
- Place vinyl on T-shirt, use transfer tape to assist in placement as it will not become damaged by the heat nor will it leave residue.
- Place T-shirt with vinyl on heat press. Verify placement. Because the design was so large, I had to leave off the bottom two lines for the first press, then rotated the T-shirt 180°, and then I pressed the bottom two lines.
- Depending on the type of heat press vinyl you’re using, you may have to peel while hot or wait until it cools. Thermoflex Plus is a hot peel so I peeled off the carrier sheet immediately.
I imagine she’s going to want one in every color combination. 🙂
