The Difference in Soft and Hard Substrates for Heat-Pressing

The process of heat-pressing to soft and hard substrates is similar. The difference in the direction comes from the substrate when sublimating versus heat-transfer vinyl (HTV), especially when using both to press onto garments (polyester for sublimation). The key is to follow the instructions and settings when heat-applying the transfers.
