***For 12" Non-Tempered Glass use the least amount of pressure your press will allow. We press one at a time using a clamshell press loosened to the point that we can use just a fingertip to lower the press top.

When transferring large murals (anything larger than 2’X3’) we recommend you add 1-2 minutes to your transfer times.

Imaging Glass Tiles with SingleStep White Backing
Our SingleStep white backing is sub-through, eliminating the need for coating the back of the tile after sublimation.

1. Apply transfer to back of glass (smooth, white side). Do NOT reverse the image when printing
2. Place tile in press face up, smooth side down into rubber pad or Nomex felt.

Increase the transfer times if you are pressing multiple tiles.
