How to Heat Press on Neoprene Can Coolers
This tutorial will show you how to press HTV on neoprene can coolers.
Neoprene Can Coolers are fairly inexpensive and make a great beginner HTV project. They come in lots of different colors and are perfect for party favors!
Resize to fit the neoprene can cooler (approx. 3") and cut out the design from HTV.
Set your heat press to 305 degrees F.
While it is warming up, place the neoprene can cooler on the lower platen and perform a "test press."
This does the double duty of allowing you to make adjustments to the heat press's pressure, and to "pre press" the neoprene can cooler .
When the heat press has reached temperature, place the HTV design onto the neoprene can cooler. You can press multiple can coolers at once!
Cover with a cover sheet or piece of parchment paper, and press.
If you only have one color in your design, press the Siser Easyweed for 10 - 15 seconds.
Remove the carrier sheet warm.
If you have multiple colors/layers of HTV, press the first for 2 seconds.
Remove the carrier sheet and place the second layer.
Cover with parchment and press for 2 seconds.
Repeat these steps with each layer.
On the last layer, press it for 2 seconds, remove the carrier sheet, cover with parchment and press for about 10 seconds.
And just like that - custom neoprene can coolers!
These are so fun to personalize!
