Once you have set up your artwork on your software it is time to cut. The plotter will do it’s own work. All one will have to do is make sure the heat transfer vinyl will not move out of place which very rarely happens.Once you’ve cut your graphic, weed it just as you would normal vinyl.Weeding the vinyl means removing all the extra heat transfer vinyl left over. You will be able to turn it to the clear liner showing your graphic.
Graphic should read right way. Be sure the heat transfer vinyl side is place down to the garment and not upwards to the heat press. Do not press the heat transfer vinyl upwards facing the heat press. This will result in the vinyl sticking to the heat press and making it hard to remove. Once it is place correctly you will place a Teflon sheet or anything similar. It will help distribute the heat and make sure nothing will stick to the platen. Set temperature, time and pressure.
