The most popular product use transfer paper were T-shirt printing, photo cushion and many other garments/fabrics.  However, if heat transfer printing is not your thing, we strongly advices you to read below guidelines before start:

Guidelines for using transfer paper:

  1. Heat – The transfer paper relies on sufficient heat to be applied so that the image separates from the paper and moves onto the substrate. Domestic Irons of 1400w minimum and above are best for domestic application. (Do not use Steam)
  2. Pressure – The more the merrier (but don’t cause and injury to yourself or your equipment). Pressure is the parameter that makes sure that the image does not only transfer but also stays there for ever
  3. Surface – Needs to be solid and sturdy. Work tops lined with another t shirt are great, ironing boards are banned!
  4. Flat Substrates – T-Shirts are flat so no problems but if you are printing other items make sure that they are flat and crease free. Remember that the iron or heat press are very flat and any indentations on the substrate will not receive heat and pressure to transfer.

Transfer Paper for Dark Based and Light Based Fabric

There are two different types of T-shirt transfer paper.

06

If you are transferring a design onto white, gray or another light colored fabric, you can use standard T-shirt transfer paper. However, if you are printing a design to transfer to black, navy, or other dark colored fabric, you must use
T-shirt transfer paper designed for dark colors (dark based transfer paper).

Also, keep in mind that on dark fabrics, black outlines of clip art images and black lettering will not show up, so modify your design according to the color fabric that will receive it.

Once you have your design printed to the T-shirt transfer paper and the ink has dried, you will be ready to apply the design to your T-shirt or other article.

Transferring the design involves cutting around the outside edges of the final image and ironing on.

20

Different manufacturers have different detailed instructions for transfer, including heat settings and length of time for heat application, but all you need for any brand of paper is a standard household iron.

Simply follow the directions provided with the paper, including application of the design and washing of the article.

Problem You Might Faces When Using Heat Transfer Paper and How to Deal With It

There are 2 situations you will frequently face when you’re doing heat transfer printing. This is always happening after printing an image using an inkjet printer:

  1. When using heat transfer paper for light fabrics, the film become transparent
  2. When using heat transfer paper for dark fabrics, the film becomes opaque white

06

The main reason why this happens is because an inkjet printer can’t be used to print white ink.  This is why the light color are fully utilize photo that you print onto the light photo. For instance, when you prints on a pink shirt, your white image will  turn to pink.  This also applied when you print on an off white shirt whereby the white will be off-white. Same goes when you are using regular printer paper on a color image.  You may see a white square with your image on it when you used it on dark colored shirts.

01Honestly, white square around an image is not looking good at all.  Due to this reason, we would love to suggest a few tips to eliminate this “trouble”

  1. Try to design your image with a frame around it.  For example, if you want to heat transfer a picture that is a triangle shape you could add the picture with a square frame around it.  In this case, after you print the design on the transfer paper, you may easily cut the unwanted white square.
  2. You can also take a sharp knife and use it to trim around the outline of the image. Anyhow, this technique might require more time and efforts.  But don’t worry, they will always worth it!
  3. Another step you can use is by investing on a cutting plotter so that you can manage to get contour cut around the printed image.  Using cutting plotter to cut your transfer paper will save a lot of time and energy.  It’s also giving you a nice and neat image compared if you cut it manually.
