They have become a signature accessory for some individuals. The rising demand enabled a lot of development for hats. In that case, why not show your creativity and print your design on your hat? It will cost much less than what it would take buying a branded cap. This article will guide you to heat press a hat without using industrial heat pressing machinery.


Step 1
The first step is to make a desirable design. You can make the design using a graphic designing software, or download a design from the internet. Be sure to observe the calibrations. The measurements of the design should match with the hat.
Print the design onto a heat transfer vinyl. Alternatively, you can make the design using an electronic cutting machine. It allows you to design and cut according to your pattern.

Take the cutting board and lay the design on it. Then cut the design using a weeding tool and cut out the vinyl parts that you don’t want appearing on the design. Make sure you mirror the design. As it will be placed on the reverse side on the heat press machine, make it comes from the right side.
Step 3
Check the heat settings on the cap press machine; make sure it’s okay. Place the cap on the heat press and use a handle to secure it. You can stretch the cap to make it fit well on the curved frame of the tool. Place a career sheet onto the design.
Step 4
Now place the final design onto the press machine and position it precisely. Pull down the heated panel onto the cap. The digital display will count down the time.
Step 5
Lift the heat panel when the display shows 00, and peel off the sheet. The hat should have the print fixed onto it properly.
