- Choose your art (Picture, text, graphic, logo, etc)
- Print your graphic using vision sublimation printing Paper
- Cut the extra part with a scissor.
- Use a second sheet to apply the polymer to your transfer with a heat press machine
- Position your hat and graphic under a heat press
- Heat press for about 30 secs (may vary depending on hat materials)
- Cover your hat with a flexible finishing sheet and give a final press for 30 seconds
- After the pressing process finished,peel the sublimation paper
All in all, this 5–10-minute method is faster than embroidering and heat transfer vinyl, without the need to weed or cut every color of vinyl. It makes the hats a clean finished appearance and ultimately does not feel like a finished product.
