Heat Resistant gloves are required to handle this item as it is extremely hot once it has been sublimated.

Clam Pressing Instructions:

Tip: We recommend using a smooth thin silicone matt under the slate to help even out pressure distribution and orientating the slate facedown so that the slate is pressing in to your print/transfer

Tips and Tricks

Slates are a natural product rather than manufactured so variance between slates is unavoidable, please find a few tips below to help you deal with these.

Slates must be heated through to at least room temp before going in the press to avoid the risk of thermal shock causing cracks.

Pre-press the slates for a short amount of time before adding your print (5-15 seconds) this can help eliminate any residue of moisture held in the porous rock slate as well as reduce the factor of the slate dropping the press temperature when introduced.

It is recommended to press this product face down so the coated area and print are being pressed into the foam press bed on the bottom and it is heated through from the back, this can help even out pressure distribution.

Polyester fabric (which can be found on our website) is the recommended top cover for the slates as this also helps further out pressure distribution.

Slates will be extremely hot and will remain so for quite a long time when they come out of the press, be sure to have your heat-resistant gloves at the ready.
