What is the difference between Sublimation Paper and Heat Transfer Paper?
Heat transfer paper is applicable to heat transfer, on which images can be printed using normal home printers by heating and pressuring in order to transfer the image onto media. Heat transfer paper can accept a wider range of ink types, such as with pigment ink, solvent ink such as home / office inkjet ink, laser ink etc. Heat transfer paper is usually transferred onto cotton.
Instruction for using Neenah 3G dark opaque papers:
Print image on the paper with the correct orientation on the blank, white side of the paper. Do not mirror the image. Remember to cut and trim along the edge of the design without leaving any white paper. Leaving a margin around the image will result in a white printed border around your printed image.
- After cutting, remove excess background material if needed.
- Gently separate the design from the grid backing paper and peel the rest of the design by hand like peeling a sticker.
Heat Press (Recommended By GE Digital Imaging)
- Heat your press to about 350F° / 176 Degree C
- Place the printed image facing you/upwards in the desired position on the fabric.
- Cover the transfer image with a Teflon cover. If not covered, the paper could potentially melt and damage your heat press machine.
- Press for 30 seconds and release the heatpress. Take out your substrate (t-shirt, pillow case etc)
- COLD Peel: allow transfer to completely cool before removing the cover sheet.
Hand Iron (NOT RECOMMENDED)
- Ensure that the garment is placed on a hard surface and not on an ironing board. Place a pillow case or T-shirt between your hard surface and your garment.
- Adjust iron at the highest setting and make sure the steam is turned OFF.
- Place heat transfer paper with the image facing upward in the desired position on fabric.
- Cover image with silicone paper to avoid the paper melting into the iron.
- Hold the iron with both hands and apply your full body weight for maximum pressure. Iron each area of the image for at least 45 to 55 seconds for a full transfer, making sure to completely lift the iron when moving to a new area/position. Continue this process until the entire sheet, including corners and edges, have been covered.
- COLD peel: allow transfer to completely cool before removing the cover sheet.
