Lift corner of the pad/liner to check your flowers. They will feel papery when dry, should be somewhat stiff and will not droop when lifted. Flowers petals which are not dry enough will pucker and center moisture may leach into (and discolor) the petals. Keep log for each type of flower you press. This will give you a starting guide for the next time you press the same flower. The pressing time for the same flower may vary from one day to the next due to changing moisture content. After you have had a bit of practice you will better be able to judge pressing times and you will be able to tell quite easily if more pressing is needed.
You can even do without glue for some projects, such as tags and bookmarks, by laying out your design on your paper and then very carefully laying clear contact paper over your project piece and trimming off the excess.
Never leave a press in your microwave unattended. The pads are wool and will emit a bad odor when scorching. Should you smell this odor, open your microwave door immediately. Use caution removing the press as it may be hot. Our presses are meant for adults and children should not use them without supervision. That being said, when directions are followed, burning pads is not a normal occurrence. Should you burn your liners and pads, you may easily order replacements on here or from any of our retailers.

Microfleur products purchased online at microfleur.com or from an Authorized Retailer are genuine, factory-new and carry the Microfleur limited warranty. Make sure you are buying a genuine Microfleur product. Microfleur only sells its products directly or through Authorized Retailers. In order to ensure you receive the highest quality care and service, do not purchase Microfleur products from an unauthorized seller. Items purchased from unauthorized resellers do not qualify for warranty and customer service fulfilled by Microfleur as it is uncertain if these goods are genuine. These sellers are not authorized to sell our products. We must enforce this in order to protect our customers and Authorized Dealers, ensure the quality of our products, and protect our brand image.
Why is this important?
When you purchase from an Authorized Retailer, you are purchasing from one of our retail partners — which means you will get the quality, service, and post-purchase support that you expect with a Microfleur product. When you purchase from our website, you know you are getting product from a trusted source – direct from the manufacturer. Microfleur can only honor warranty requests if the product is purchased either directly from Microfleur or from one of our Authorized Dealers.
Buying from unauthorized dealers can be risky. Some 3rd party sellers on Amazon, retailers, websites, and online auctions who are not authorized dealers may sell Microfleur products that are used, refurbished, counterfeit, stolen, defective or have defaced, missing or altered serial numbers and/or product labels. These products carry no warranty from Microfleur. Only Authorized Dealers can uphold the Microfleur quality, offer replacements, and provide customer service. Protect yourself by purchasing from an Authorized Retailer. If you are not sure if someone is an Authorized Retailer, please contact Microfleur at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to tell you.
