    I have the Stahls automatic heat press and purchased opaque and white transfer paper from Best blanks. Not only did my design not print, it stuck to the top of the machine. What did I do wrong? The instructions to the transfer paper says not to mirror but it only seems logical too.

      Hi Demetria,

      Did you allow the machine to sit 30 minutes prior to using the machine and did you have the machine set on the correct temperature per the instructions?

  2. John says

    I’m looking to cut my own patterns,but not sure what cutting machine to get,any suggestions? Also can you put a pattern over another pattern without messing the first one up with more heat? Thank you

    • says

      Hi John,
      To be honest, we have never printed our own designs due to the quality it provides. The best possible quality would be to have designs screen printed. When having designs screen printed this eliminates any cutting that may be required. I’m not sure how it would look if you printed over another pattern. My opinion it probably wouldn’t look right, but it will not hurt to try it and see for yourself.

  3. John says

    My friend has a cutting machine that cuts the vinyl pattern and then he removes the extra vinyl and puts it on a shirt. I don’t think it’s the same as what your doing
    ? He also makes banners,window stickers,can your system do those things. I am going to get into this business ,but I want to make sure I’m getting the right stuff. Thank you for all your advice and help.
