iCraft Heat Settings Chart
The right time & temperature really makes a difference! Too long or too hot and your material could warp, melt or burn. And, on the other hand, if your temperature isn't hot enough or if you're not pressing for long enough, you will have trouble getting the material to adhere. We have the heat settings for your home iron and your heat press below, but just keep in mind that everyone's machine is different so use this as a guide and always test new supplies.
