FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

– 1 day for single color transfers

– 4 Days for two colors transfers

– 5-7 Days for multi colors transfers

Multi color transfers are usually printed using the CMYK method. We separate your design in four layers, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. For dark garments a white base is printed over the whole image to give more opacity. We can also print your design using the simulated process. 

– All transfers are shipped from Montréal, Canada.

– Every transfer is screen printed. This means for each printed color a separate screen is made. Setup fees includes the following : 

  • Printing your design on a transparent sheet
  • Burning the screen
  • Setup the screen on the printing machine
  • Mixing the custom color
  • Testing prior to production
  • Reclaiming the screen

– Every transfer is screen printed using plastisol ink. We prefer using Wilflex and Union inks. Different combinations are used to produce different transfer types. 

Cold peel paper : 
– Excellent opacity
– Athletic transfers
– Semi-gloss finish
– Rubbery feel
– Mostly used to print neck labels and transfers for fleeces.
– Wait 30 secondes before peeling.

Hot peel paper:
– Good opacity, we use special coated paper that leaves 99% of the ink on the garment and not so much on the paper.
– No feel print, smooth, even nicer than direct screen printing.
– Perfect stretching and wash resistance.
– Peel immediately after pressing.

– Before starting to press the transfers you must understand the process. When we screen print directly on to the garments, we place them on a conveyor belt to cure the ink after printing. Plastisol ink is completely cured when the whole design reaches 325 degrees F. To achieve that, we cure the ink for 30 seconds at around 365-370 degrees in the belt. You must understand that there are multiple layers of printed ink, while the top layer reaches 325 degrees. the bottom layer may be at 300 degrees only.

 

Perhaps while printing transfers, we semi-cure the ink on the paper at around 250 degrees. That way the ink become gelled, like a sort of vinyl. The final cure is happening when you will be applying transfers on your  garments. We suggest to heat you heat press at 375 degrees to make sure the whole transfer will adhere properly to the garment at a medium heavy pressure. You can always lower your temperature to a minimum of 325 degrees. In that case we suggest to repress the transfers once peeled with a teflon sheet to make sure it will stretch and last longer. *Too much pressure or temperature can make the transfer lose opacity.

Troubleshooting

Have you ordered athletic or classic transfers? Vintage transfers have less opacity.

Too much press time, temperature  or pressure on the heat press can be decrease the opacity.

– Fabric very thin.
– Uneven heat on the platten.
– Make sure you don’t use teflon or parchemin paper.

– Repress using a teflon sheet.

– Image too close to the edge

– Image is not the highest point on the garment.
If it still not working, try to peel your transfer from the paper, it should peel easily. If it doesn’t peel, contact us at [email protected]

– Remove moisture from fabric

– Delay before peeling (hot peel)

– Cool spot on platen

Not enough pressure.
Not enough pressing time.
Temperature too low.

Avoid high heat while washing or drying. Wash in cold water, garment inside out.

Avoid stretching your garment as soon as it gets out of the heat press. The garment keeps the heat for some minutes and while stretching it hot, the transfer will maintain this stretched look and crack faster.
Transfers sit on top of the fabric, they are generally less stretchable than direct screen printing.
