Ready to Press Transfer: Stop Playing Me I'm Not Them
TRANSFER TO THE MATERIAL
Tape all four corners of the transfer (A-Foil) with a heat resistant tape. Reason: While opening the press or removing the textile from your press, it may happen that the corners of the A-Foil lift from the fabric. This leads to undesired hot-peeling and to incomplete and faulty edges. It is important to repress the transfer properly to soften the touch and increase the washability for 5-10 sec. For a matte look press two times for 30 seconds and for a shiny look press only once.
YOU NEED A HEAT PRESS to press this transfer. A house iron or circuit press will not work for the image to transfer.
***Press Instructions: (Do Not Teflon use Parchment Paper)***
Cotton: 320F – 45 sec -5 med. Pressure
Polyester: 270F – 20 sec -5 med. pressure
Blend Fabric: 320F – 30 sec -5 med pressure
Book Covers: 230F - 15 sec – 5 med. pressure
Remove any excess transfer that has white adhesive, so it won’t appear on finish garment. If adhesive is on the garment, use transfer tape to remove it while hot.
AFTER THE PRESS PROCESS
Peel the A-Foil when absolutely cold. Reason: If you remove the A-Foil while still warm, it will lead to an incomplete and faulty transfer.
Start from a corner with the most toner coverage and remove the A-Film in one, rapid motion (like a bandage).
To ensure wash-ability and a matte finish, re-press with a piece of parchment paper for 20 seconds at the same temperature. The pressure should be bumped up to a high pressure (8 or 9). To achieve a shiny finish use a Teflon sheet instead of parchment paper.
Up to 40°C (cold wash cycle). Do not use fabric softener or liquid detergent. Do not tumble dry.
Please store the unprinted media away from dust, moisture, and heat. The printed A-Foils can often be stored for several months, when not scratched or bent. The married transfers can also be stored for longer, when protected from dust, moisture, heat, scratches, and bending. We do recommend storing them in a box or in sealable zip-lock bags.
