Suitable printer inks
First time users are often unsure if their home (or business) Inkjet printer has suitable inks to allow the paper to work. This concern is unfounded, as normal inks will work just fine. The secret to the transfer process lies in the paper rather than the ink so there is no preference as to which printer or which ink you use as long as you are using an Inkjet printer.
The difference between light and dark transfer paper
It is vital that you choose the right paper for the colour of the substrate you are printing on. In general terms, images printed image on Light Transfer Paper will provide a vibrant and accurate image on white and light coloured fabric. Ink is translucent and is not visible unless it is laid on a white or very light coloured background.
Dark fabrics require the Dark Transfer Paper which a white background that is transferred with the ink and blocks out the colour of the substrate from coming through the ink. Subsequently, suitable images tend to be block images or images that the white areas can be easily cut away as they will appear on the shirt once the transfer process is complete.
Washing the garment
Durability of the transfer will depend on how well the actual transfer process was done and how well you do to maintain and wash the garment based on some simple instructions.
When washing we recommend that you turn the garment inside out so the image or text do not rub against the machine or other garments. Next you should select a 40 degree wash with a full spin cycle. Most fabrics can exceed 15 washes and an average seems to stand on 20 washes. It is important to note that washing detergents that contain bleach will cause the image to fade prematurely.
Avoid common mistakes
Mistakes when using iron on transfer paper are frustrating and can be expensive. The most common mistakes to avoid are:
– Printing on the non coated side of the sheet – Ironing the image or text on an uneven or not solid surface (use a table or worktop). – Using an iron which is not hot enough – Not ironing long enough – Not applying enough pressure while ironing
