Merica Sublimation transfer - Patriotic
Sizes of designs are printed according to the longest side of the design only, for example, this means if you order a 9in transfer and the image height gets to 9inches before the width get to 9in, then that is how it is printed.
-Any questions feel free to ask.
-Images are printed on 8.5in x 11in paper.
The sublimation transfers ONLY work on a 50% or more POLYESTER garment. 50% to 80% polyester will give your shirt/design a faded/vintage look. For the most vibrant look use 100% polyester. I recommend using 100% polyester shirts for best/most vibrant results. I recommend using 100% polyester shirts for best/ vibrant results.
The transfer must be used on a light-colored fabric such as white/ light gray; pastel colors will work as well. Keep in mind that these transfers WILL NOT print white, therefore whatever color your shirt is will show up as the white areas on the transfer. No white ink is printed onto the transfer. Black fabric will NOT work, LIGHT COLORED FABRICS ONLY.
***Sublimation DOES NOT work on cotton.
The colors on the listing may differ from colors on the transfer. (The transfer may look lighter or darker than the listing.) Once the shirt is pressed it will look similar to image online.
***When you press the transfer onto the fabric the colors may vary depending on monitor settings and will look different from screen to screen!
You will need a heat press to use this transfer.
Instructions will be sent with each order. Adjustments may need to be made depending on your brand heat press and its abilities.
- Preheat press to 400 degrees Fahrenheit or 204 degrees Celsius.

- Use a lint roller to get loose fibers off the garment. (VERY IMPORTANT, DO NOT SKIP!!)
