Times and temperatures list for small format products

We created a time and temperatures table to guide you in the sublimation process to produce small format items :

The following guidelines represent the best, most general instructions we can provide. This information may change as we make continual improvements and refine our processes. Below guidelines are for a swing-away heat press with a Nomex pad. Please remember that heat presses may vary. Please check with your manufacturer for any special concerns.
