I didn’t know you could get a heat press that big! I cannot help with the settings and so on. But i am curious because i thought that a wide format sublimation printer printed directly to the likes of polyester flag material and was dry when it came out of the printer and just needed to be trimmed or whatever you were going to do with it?
Hi Karen. You can buy direct to textile or dye sublimation which prints onto paper then has to b pressed through the calendar press. I went for a small calendar press as the biggest size of flag I’m going to produce would be 5ft x 3ft plus I’m tight for space in my unit 🙂
After a little research I can help you part of the way with the temperature, in not sure if it changes with different brands of transfer paper, and welcome to the world of textiles, you may want to look at soft home furnishing as it’s a growing market
Thanks for taking the time to reply Graham. I’m really confused about the speed settings… Can you send me the link to that video you found may I can pick up some tips from it. Adkins arent very helpful and their website isn’t great either 😕
