Give me an “H!”
Give me an “O!”
Give me an “H!”
Give me an “O!”
Give me an “H!”
Give me an “O!”
 
What does that spell?

Kris Kringle knows, and so do all the elves on his cheerleading squad. They love “Coack K” so much, in fact, that they had these jackets made. With a few simple heat transfer material designs, he can show how proud he is of all his elves and they can show how much they love their jolly old coach as they spread holiday cheer(s).

A jacket like this would also be a great way for grandparents, day care providers, teachers, and anybody else with little “elves” to show their pride.

See how to make your own below.

Application Instructions for “Coach K’s Elves” Design

Heat Press Settings (CAD-CUT Glitter Flake)
Temperature: 320° F
Pressure: Firm (#9 on Hotronix® heat presses)

Tip-StockingTip: Use a heat printing pillow inserted into the garment to create even pressure when working around heavy seams, buttons and zippers. Adjust heat press pressure with the garment and inserted pillow on the heat press.
 
• Place the garment on the lower platen of the heat press and heat press it for 10 seconds to remove moisture and wrinkles. (This only needs to be done once per garment).
 
• Remove the liner from the names
 
• Using scissors, cut apart names and trim the carrier as necessary to fit all pieces on the garment
 
• Position the names sticky-side-down on the garment in desired locations
 
• Cover all designs with a non-stick cover sheet
 
• Apply for 10-15 seconds
 
• Rub the heat eraser over the cover sheet until all names are COLD
 
Tip-StockingTip: To speed production time while decorating multiple items, set aside item after application to cool while heat applying the rest.
 
 
• Peel the clear carrier
 

Application Instructions for Scattered Names and String Lights
 
Heat Press Settings for CAD-CUT® Fashion-FILM®
Temperature: 320°F
Pressure: Medium (#7 on Hotronix® heat presses)
 
Tip-StockingTip: If you have already applied the Glitter Flake names, position the garment so that the area with the already applied names will not be in contact with the heat again. This can be achieved by raising the new heat application area with the heat printing pillow or using a quick change heat press platen.
 
• Remove the liner from the designs
 
• Using scissors, cut apart bulbs and trim the carrier as necessary to fit all pieces on the garment without overlapping
 
• Position the designs sticky-side-down on the garment in desired locations
 
• Cover all designs with a non-stick cover sheet
 
• Apply for 15 seconds
