Hot Peel Transfers
Hot peel transfers offers a no hand feel print and a screen printed look. Even nicer and softer than screen printing.
Hot peel transfers comes in two options : vintage and opaque. The difference between the two types is that the classic transfers are underbased with white layer to achieve more opacity.
Hot peel transfers are suitable to be applied on 100% cotton and 50-50 cotton-poly garments.
One of the important features is that hot peel transfers gives great durability and high stretchability performance.
If you are looking for a screen printed look alike, this transfer is perfect for you!
Hot peel transfers application
It’s important to remove all moisture from the garment before pressing the transfer. Moisture will absorb the ink and make you colors look dull or faded. Heat press your garment and look for fume coming out. If there is fume, this is moisture evaporating.
We suggest pressing your hot peel transfers at 375F.
Use a temperature laser gun to make sure that the heat platen is at the right temperature.
*Please note : you can go lower with your temperature when printing on 50/50 items. We suggest to not go lower than 350F
We suggest pressing your transfers for 7-12 seconds. Time varies depending on your heat press and pressure. Our tests are made on a Stahls Hotronix Heat press. We press them for 12 seconds
Adjust your heat press for medium-hard pressure. Do not go too tight as it will make the colors look faded on darker garments.
Step 2 :
Remove any teflon or parchemin paper on the top of the heat press. Extra layers of paper will block the heat.
Step 3 :
Place the transfer in the desired position and heat press it.
Step 4 :
Once the timer runs out, slowly open the heat press. Opening the heat press too fast will result in partial split of the transfer. You want to open it slowly so the pressure of the heat press does not lift the transfer too early.
Step 5 :
It’s a hot peel paper, so you need to peel the transfer right away. We suggest waiting 2 seconds before peeling the transfers. That way, more ink will be deposit on the garment.
Step 6 :
Peel the paper slowly in an even direction.
Step 7 :
You can always re-press the transfer with a teflon or parchemin paper for 5 seconds to increase it durability.
