Materials Needed

  • Bare sublimatable magnets
  • Heat transfer tape
  • Cloth for cleaning and all-purpose cleaner (rubbing alcohol)

Step One: Preparation

Begin by cleaning the magnets with a cloth and all-purpose cleaner (rubbing alcohol). Next, line up and center the magnet on the transfer and use heat transfer tape to secure it.

Step Two: Pressing

Press the magnets at 400 F using the following times:

Aluminum: 50 seconds

FRP: 1-1:05 minutes

Increase the time if you’re pressing more than one magnet.

Step Three: Post-Pressing

Peel the film off the two-sided tape from the back of the magnet and attach.
