Why B-Flex Pressing Pillows are a Game-Changer for Heat Transfer Vinyl Projects

What's the Issue?
Ever tried pressing a logo onto a button-down shirt or a design onto a zipper hoodie? If yes, you've probably struggled with uneven surfaces. Buttons, zippers, and seams can be a real challenge, making your heat transfer less effective and likely to fail.

The Solution: B-Flex Pressing Pillows
These pillows help in creating a flat surface, ensuring a flawless heat transfer. How? When placed under a garment, elements like buttons or zippers sink into the pillow, providing an even surface for pressing. They also allow you to work around obstacles by using the pillow to raise your pressing area higher than the problem parts.

How to Use B-Flex Pressing Pillows: A Simple Guide

  • Select the Right Size: Before you begin, choose the appropriate pillow size. Use the Large pillow for bigger garments and the Medium for smaller items. You may also fold the pillows to make them fit into smaller places like pockets etc.
  • Position Your Garment: Lay your garment on the heat press machine. Identify areas with buttons, zippers, seams, or any other obstructions.
  • Place the Pillow: Slide the B-Flex Pressing Pillow either inside the garment (if it's something like a shirt) or underneath it. Ensure the area you're pressing is directly over the pillow.
  • Adjust for Pressure: With the pillow in place, you might need to adjust the pressure of your heat press slightly. The pillow adds some height, so ensure the pressure is even but not too forceful.
  • Press as Usual: Now, proceed with your heat pressing. The pressing pillow will ensure that the uneven areas sink into the foam, giving you a flat surface to work on.
  • Check Your Transfer: Once done, lift the heat press, remove the pillow, and check your transfer. It should be smooth and evenly adhered.
  • Clean and Store: After use, check the pressing pillow for any adhesive residue. Clean if necessary and store in a dry place for future use.

Note: Remember, the B-Flex Pressing Pillows can handle high temperatures, but it's always a good practice to ensure you're working within the recommended temperature range.
