  • Place your hat on the lower platen of the press, then use the lever on the side of your press to adjust the hook to hold the hat in place during pressing.

  • Put your transfer on the hat in the desired position, use thermo tape if the liner isn’t adhesive!
  • Once your transfer is lined up to your satisfaction, lower the upper platen to clamp shut onto your hat until the magnets connect. When the time is up, your press will automatically open and you can peel your transfer according to the application instructions.
