important tips

  • Always use a silicone pad for best results or your 1/8″ foam pad for pre, and main, press, (adjust time and temp if using the foam pad) for post press use only a silicone pad (recommended)
  • Check your patches before placement.
  • Always check your heat press platen with a laser temperature  gun to ensure accurate temps.
  • Store your patches in a cool dry place.
  • Lint roll your hats prior to placement.
  • All tests are done using a Stahls Hotronix 360 IQ Hat press, your settings may vary for any other style hat press. For Patches upper and lower heat is recommended, which is why we use the 360 IQ.
  • Always order a few extra patches as well practice with other hats first to dial in your hat heat press settings
