STEP 1: Trim excess blank paper from non-mirrored, printed transfers to leave 2” of white space around your cutting-board-shaped, full-bleed graphic. This makes it easier for the transfer paper and image to conform to the slightly-beveled edges of the cutting board. Use at least 1/8” bleed on each side to better ensure your graphic hits all edges. STEP 2: Set towel/pad centered on the bottom platen of your open heat press. Then place 1 sheet of blowout paper on top of the towel/pad. STEP 3: Lay your trimmed transfer image side up (last chance to make sure you did not mirror print the transfer.) STEP 4: Place cutting board coated side down facing the transfer. STEP 5: Take your time aligning the cutting board to your graphic. Secure two of the transfer’s edges to the top of the cutting board using small pieces of heat tape. STEP 6: On the top, place over the cutting board 1 sheet of blow-out paper larger than the board.
