  • Print Mode: Use the Virtuoso Print Manage and the FOREVER Profile for printing with SAWGRASS SG400/800.
  • Image Style: Only for full-tone vector graphics. Not suitable for photographs and light colours

Transfer Process:

  • Preheat your heat press. Make sure that the metal plate underneath the rubber mat is also hot.
  • Place the textile on your lower plate and pre-press it for 5 seconds.
  • Place the transfer paper onto the textile.
  • Press for 20-30 seconds.
  • Remove the transfer paper after 2 seconds. (Never take the T-Shirt off the press before the transfer paper has been peeled off.)
  • For better washability put a sheet of Matt Finish Economy or Glossy Finish with the glossy side face down onto your design and press again for 30 seconds with high pressure.
  • Stretch the t-shirt after removing the silicone paper as long as the shirt is hot. This leads to a softer touch.

Important:

Important Notice:

Before starting mass production, we recommend making transfer and washing test with all materials.

Important advice for double-sided printing on textiles:
T-Shirts for a double-sided print(frontside & backside), have to be put over the lower heat plate. In this case, only one side will be treated with heat and you avoid that the applicated design from the other side will be pressed out again.

If your T-shirt is yellowing, lay a piece of fleece onto it during the transfer process.
