Sublimation 2 sided Bottle Openers
Supplies needed: 
- sublimatable substrate 
- sublimation transfer 
- teflon or scratch paper 
- spray adhesive (3M75) for 2-sided sublimation 
- heat tape for 1-sided sublimation 
- soft paper towel (recommended) 

Heat press settings: 
- temperature - 400 degrees F 
- dwell time - 1:00 minute 
- pressure - medium 

Note: The recommended settings above may need adjustments for best results. 
Settings will vary depending on the heat press brand and model, ink and paper 
and atmospheric conditions. 

2nd Note: The layers of soft paper towel achieve two goals: 1. it helps to 
distribute the pressure evenly throughout the substrate; 2. it helps to trap 
ink that is dispersed outside of the edges of the substrate if there is an 
overprint area or full bleed in the artwork. 

3rd Note: For best results sublimating both sides, it is recommended that 
both sides are sublimated at the same time. Use the double-side template to 
create the artwork. After Printing, fold the transfer in half on the dotted 
line and line up the transfer to both sides of the substrate. 

Layer the press from the bottom pad to the top heat platen as follows: 
1. teflon sheet or scratch paper 
2. 2-3 layers of soft paper towel 
3. transfer 
4. substrate 
5. transfer* 
6. teflon sheet or scratch paper 
*disregard layer 5 if only one side is being sublimated. 

1. Lightly spray the transfer using spray adhesive. 
2. Align the substrate onto the transfer. If sublimating one side only, tape 
two ends of the substrate to the transfer using the heat tape. 
3. Place the transfers and substrate in the press onto the paper towel - 
transfer>substrate>transfer. One-side sublimation - transfer>substrate. 
4. Place the teflon sheet or scratch paper over the transfer and substrate. 
5. Press the items using the settings listed above. 
6. Remove items from the press and transfer from substrate immediately. Use 
heat resistant gloves if necessary - the items will be very hot. 

- If the image of the final product appears light, increase the pressure or 
the dwell time slightly (5-15 seconds). 
- If the image on the final product appears blurred or substrate appears 
yellowed, reduce the dwell time slightly (5-15 seconds). 
- When sublimating a double-sided substrate, sublimate one side, allow to 
cool, and then sublimate the other side. Use a fresh teflon or scratch paper 
under the substrate to eliminate any degassing of the first image onto the 
press or teflon.
