Gildan  Short Sleeve T-Shirt 

Two colors grey and white and sizes from S - 3x available.

The extra steps involving the FOAMKIT and the instructions below are designed
to eliminate the potential for transfer lines and/or press lines on the
garment. Although these instructions are created to help improve the quality
of the sublimated product small adjustments may be needed for best results.
See instructions below.

Supplies needed:
- sublimatable substrate/apparel
- sublimation transfer
- scratch paper/butcher paper
- repositionable adhesive spray
- heat-resistant foam
- lint roller

Heat press settings:
- temperature - 380 degrees F to 385 degrees F
- dwell time - 45-50 seconds
- pressure - light

Note: The recommended settings above may need adjustments for best results.
Settings will vary depending on the heat press brand and model ink and paper
and atmospheric conditions.

2nd Note: Because the shirts are thinner it is necessary to either "dress"
the press or place a piece of paper inside the shirt to prevent bleed

3rd Note: The maximum size of the artwork should allow no less than 1.5 inches
margin from the edge of the art to the edge of the paper. This allows the
heat-resistant foam to be created larger than the artwork and smaller than the

4th Note: Cut a piece of heat-resistant foam from the FOAMKIT that is slightly
larger than the artwork but smaller than the transfer. Bevel the edges to a 45
degrees angle with a scissors. This helps to achieve a "soft edge."

5th Note: Position the apparel so that any tags inside the collar are not
inside the heat press parameters to prevent any melting issues.

Layer the press from the bottom pad to the top heat platen as follows:
1. scratch paper/butcher paper
2. heat-resistant foam (cut to appropriate size)
3. butcher paper
4. substrate with paper inside (or "dress" the press)
5. transfer
6. scratch paper/butcher paper

1. Adjust the pressure of the press before sublimating the substrates. The
foam should compress no more than 1/4 its original size. The heat platen
should not be touching the bottom pad.
2. Spray the transfer with a light coat of repositionable adhesive spray.
3. Place the heat-resistant foam bevel side up centered onto the heat press.
4. Position the substrate onto the foam and remove wrinkles. If severely
wrinkled a 5 second prepress may be necessary.
5. Use a lint roller to remove debris from the substrate.
6. Place scratch paper or butcher paper over the substrate and let the heat
platen rest on the layers for 5 seconds to remove any fine wrinkles if
necessary and remove scratch paper after. Do not press the substrate.
7. Position the transfer onto the substrate.
8. Place the scratch paper or butcher paper over the transfer.
9. Press the substrate using the appropriate heat dwell and pressure settings
10. After the dwell time is complete lift the heat press carefully remove
scratch/butcher paper and gently roll the transfer from the substrate. Use
heat resistant gloves if necessary - the items will be very hot.

- If the image of the final product appears light increase the pressure
slightly or increase the dwell time slightly (5-10 seconds).
- If there appears to be transfer lines on the garment from the paper or the
press reduce the pressure.
- When sublimating two sides sublimate one side at a time use a fresh
scratch paper or butcher paper under the substrate (on top of the foam) as
well as on top of all the materials (slight degassing can occur when
sublimation dyes are reheated and may transfer onto unwanted areas such as the
foam or the press).
