We at Chemica understand that you want to get the job done as fast as possible, but you also want to have the best results possible. ere are several things you can check when selecting your HTV for the job as well as things you can do while doing the job to help you save time and have awesome results. Here are a few of them: Check the time needed to press the HTV. Some types of HTV are quicker to press than others. Most HTV takes 10-20 seconds to press. At Chemica, any HTV that has "Revolution" in the name takes as little as 5 seconds to press. Pay attention to how you are supposed to peel the HTV. Oftentimes you are supposed to peel the HTV when it's warm or cold. However, some HTV allows you to peel warm. Pay attention to the product specifications to see if this is the case. Use a room temperature surface to cool your design faster. Rub your recently pressed design on a room tempera- ture surface, such as a tabletop, to help cool it before you peel it. Doing this will actu- ally cause the HTV to cool quicker, thus sav- ing you time. GP HOW TO SAVE TIME AND HAVE GREAT RESULTS 1 2 3
