Important Notice:

Before you start a production run, we recommend that you perform pressing and wash tests on all your materials.

Important note for double-sided textile printing:
When transferring to both the front and the back side of a T-Shirt, you should always put the T-Shirt over the lower plate of your heat press. So that, only one side is treated with the heat and pressure from the press. This is to prevent the already transferred side of the T-Shirt from being re -pressed.

If your T-Shirt turns yellow: Placing a piece of fabric over the T-Shirt during the transfer process will prevent this from happening.


Application Settings for Photographs on Cotton:

  • Cut around the edge of the image.
  • Place the shirt and the transfer media with the printed side facing down on the press.
  • Separate the transfer immediately using a Slow, Low & Fluid Motion. If you see toner residue on the paper, wait a few seconds for the toner to cool before continuing the separation process. CAUTION! If the toner cools too much, the transfer will not work.
  • Press together for 30 Seconds with 5 bar (72.5 psi) Maximum Pressure at 180°C (356°F).

Application Settings for Photographs on Polyester:

  • Cut around the edge of the image.
  • Place the shirt and the transfer media with the printed side facing down on the press.
  • Separate the transfer immediately using a Slow, Low & Fluid Motion. If you see toner residue on the paper, wait a few seconds for the toner to cool before continuing the separation process. CAUTION! If the toner cools too much, the transfer will not work.
  • Press together for 30 Seconds with 5 bar (72.5 psi) Maximum Pressure at 150°C (302°F).

Application Settings for Vectorized Images on Cotton:

  • Place the shirt and the transfer media with the printed side facing down on the press.
  • Press together for 15 Seconds with 0.5 bar (7.25 psi) Lowest Pressure setting at 180°C (356°F).
  • Cover with a sheet of Glossy or Matt Finishing Economy & Re-press for a further 30 Seconds using 5 bar (72.5 psi) Maximum Pressure at 180°C (356°F).
  • Separate the transfer gently using a Slow, Low & Fluid Motion. If you see toner residue on the paper, you can cool the toner by rubbing the transfer for a few seconds more. CAUTION! If the toner cools too much, the transfer will not work.
  • Rub the transfer vigorously with a piece of cloth for 5 Seconds (without removing the T-Shirt from the press).
  • Re-press for a further 5 Seconds with 3 bar (43.5 psi) Medium Pressure at 180°C (356°F).

Application Settings for Vectorized Images on Polyester:

  • Place the shirt and the transfer media with the printed side facing down on the press.
  • Press together for 10-15 Seconds with 4 bar (58 psi) High Pressure at 150°C (302°F).
  • Cover with a sheet of Glossy or Matt Finishing Economy & Re-press: Automatic Press: 20 Seconds with 5 bar (72.5 psi) High Pressure at 150°C (302°F) or Manual Press: 30 Seconds with Maximum Pressure at 150°C (302°F).
  • Separate the transfer immediately using a Slow, Low & Fluid Motion. Note: If you see toner residue on the paper, you can cool the toner by rubbing the transfer for a few seconds with a piece of cloth. CAUTION! If the toner cools too much, the transfer will not work.

Washability:

  • Up to 40°C (Cold Wash Cycle).

Iron Settings:

  • Cover the design with Baking or Silicone Paper before Ironing.

Important Notice:

  • If, in spite of everything, the background is still transferred in certain areas, you can use a fresh sheet of paper, in a further pressing operation!
  • If the toner can not be completely transferred, increasing the pressure or the transfer time will prevent this.
  • If a background is transferred, reducing the transfer time or the pressure, will prevent this!
  • The waiting period is very important – please do not separate the media too early or too late!
  • Place the fabric completely flat on the work surface. Please ensure that no buttons, seams or collars are on the work surface. If this is not possible, you should put the shirt over the lower plate, so that only the transferrable side is affected by the heat and pressure from the press.
  • Image Gradients & Transparency’s should not be less than 70%. Light transparency‘s within designs are unpredictable when transferred to textiles!
  • Cover the design with Baking or Silicone Paper before Ironing.
