Heat Press Pillows also known as heat transfer pillows or heat printing pillows are non-stick foam inserts used with Heat-Presses during the heat printing process. Heat press pillows are recommended when pressing a garment with zippers, buttons, snaps, collars or thick seams. When used, raised elements of the garment sink down into the pillow, eliminating pressure points and creating a more even pressing surface. Without the Heat Press Pillow, the heating element is unable to make a tight, smooth seal on the Heat-Transfer-Vinyl. They also eliminate any indentation that can appear from the heat press outside edges. To use, place the pillow inside or underneath the garment, adjust your heat press using the knob atop the upper platen to accommodate the new thicker pressing surface and begin pressing. Heat press pillows are reusable. This pillow is 5.5 inches by 22 inches and 6mm thick. It also is available in a 12-by-14-square size and a 5.5-by-5.5-square size. Improve the final result of vinyl applications to backpacks, hats, hoodies, reversible mesh jerseys, baby onesies, and any garment with raised surfaces, using a Heat Press Pillow. Do I need a Heat Press Pillow or Protective-Cover-Sheet? If your garment has raised surfaces like zippers, buttons, or thick seams, you will need a Heat-Press-Pillow to ensure equal pressure when applying Heat-Transfer-Vinyl. If your garment does not have raised surfaces, but you will be creating a multilayered Heat-Transfer-Vinyl design or adding Hot-Fix-Rhinestones on top of vinyl, you will need a Protective-Cover-Sheet.
