Do I have to use an EasyPress Mat with my EasyPress?
Using an EasyPress Mat is ideal, but it’s easy enough to create the right iron-on environment for your transfers using items you probably already have at home.
What to look for
A firm, flat surface for your foundation. A waist-high table is perfect.
Great examples you have at home: craft table, kitchen table, wood table, butcher block, marble or wood cutting board.
A suitable protective mat/layer. The layer on top of your foundation must be heat-resistant, have good insulation properties, and wick moisture.
The ideal example you likely have at home: a fluffy cotton bath towel with even texture (no embedded patterns), folded so it’s about 3 inches thick. View this chart of recommended settings when using a folded towel.
What to avoid:
Ironing board. It has an uneven surface and it’s not solid or sturdy enough to allow for gentle pressure.
Corrugated cardboard. When pressed, it creates an uneven surface.
Silicone baking mats/aluminum foil. Neither provide insulation and both get dangerously hot.
