There are three basic elements when setting your heat press to get good results…. 
TIME, TEMPERATURE and PRESSURE. When these three elements are balanced properly you will get professional quality results every time. This is not hard to do.
Paper does not peel easily or remains stuck after pressing
This transfer process was not completed. One of the three elements has been set too low. 
Start by making sure the pressure is set properly (Machine should “Snap shut firmly”). Pressure should be set: Medium/heavy.
If the pressure is OK, try increasing either the temperature or the time duration. 
See instruction sheet for recommended times and temperatures for specific products/fabrics being pressed. 
(Most common time settings on our transfer papers for mouse pads, t-shirts, caps, etc are 3-5 seconds)

Make sure you are printing on the coated side of the paper.
The back of the transfer paper has printing on it!
