Because we want to offer you the best options for digital printing onto DARK apparel, check out SingleJet Opaque heat transfer paper for use with recommended HP and Epson inkjet printers.
This paper is simple to use; basically, an image is printed right reading, the edges of the design are trimmed, the vinyl surface is peeled off, the design is placed in position on the shirt and heat pressed.
These are the steps: Place the black shirt on the platen, cover w/parchment paper, and press shirt for a few seconds to remove moisture and wrinkles.
Remove parchment paper.
Peel coating off of the backing paper. Position design on the shirt where desired. Cover with parchment paper and press for 25 seconds at 375 degrees F with a good quality heat press. We used the RTSW 1620 Heat press w/digital controls.
Let the shirt cool to the touch. Cold peel parchment paper from the design. And, that’s it!
Aside from dramatic and vibrant color on black and dark apparel and fabrics, additional features of SingleJet Opaque heat transfer paper are that it offers a great bond to fabric and has excellent washability characteristics.
We so appreciate your interest in all our digital transfer systems and wish you much success in your printing endeavors. If you have questions, please call our Customer Service Specialist at 651-686-5027 x 4 or Greg at x 2. We’re here to help!
