How to use Heat Transfer (Dark Textile)

 

Heat Transfer Paper, is used by hobbyists and professionals to personalize items by transferring designs, images and text onto fabriic surfaces, such as t-shirts, hoodies, bags, denim, pillows. This transfer paper is specially coated to work with home or office Inkjet Printers and transfers onto the surface using an iron or heat press, resulting in a durable and vibrant image on your chosen textile.

 

It is great for creating custom apparel with unique designs, logos and images, or creating personalized gifts for friends and family, as well as quilts, banners and fabric art.

 

Instructions

 

There are two types of Heat Transfer available.

  • Light Textile (Clear): for white and light coloured surfaces.
  • Dark Textile (White): for dark coloured suraces.

 

These instructions are for Dark Textile.

 

Materials Needed:

  • Inkjet Printer
  • Scissors, Craft Knife or Cutting Machine.
  • Iron or Heat Press
  • Ironing board (ideally a hard surface for ironing).

 

Step 1: Print

Heat Transfer Paper Dark Textile does not need to be mirrored.

 

 

Make sure your Printer Settings have been set accordingly:

 

PAPER TYPE: Premium Glossy Paper, Label Paper (175g or more) / Thick Paper / Decal Paper.

Maximum Photo Resolution.

 

We advise you to use the manual feed in your printer (not the paper tray).

Print on the glossy side of the transfer paper.

 

Step 2: Cut

 

Cut out the image using Scissors, a Craft Knife, or Cutting Machine.

If you are using the dark textile version, then any edges left around the image will leave a white outline, so you may want to cut closer depending on your desired result.

 

Step 3: Prepare

 

Iron the surface to remove any wrinkles, and make sure there is no dirt or hairs that would get stuck inside the transfer.
Then, place the image face down in your desired location.

 

Creases and uneven surfaces will affect the quality of the transfer.

 

Step 4: Iron

 

Place the silicon sheet on top to protect the image during the transfer.

 

Iron by applying pressure on one side of the iron. Try to keep the pressure consistent while you move around the iron to cover the surface evenly.

 

A hard surface is recommended for the best transfer quality.

 

Step 5: Peel

 

Peel off the backing, to reveal your transferred image.

 

Finished!

 

It is recommended to stretch the image after transferring.
This will prevent it from stiffening later on.

 

 

Washing

Wait 1-2 days after transfer before washing.

Turn the clothes inside out to avoid discoloration.
Avoid using bleach, fabric softener or similar.

 

Ironing

Never iron without the silicon sheet protecting the transfer.
Direct contact with the iron can damage the image.

 

Storage

Store the remaining papers in a dark cool place.
Preferrably under 60°C (140°F).
