How To Use Laser Transfer Paper

Laser printers use an electrical charge, attracting toner particles to a transfer roller. These are then pressed onto a piece of paper, while heat and pressure from the fuser unit permanently fix the image onto the page. This method differs slightly for light and dark garments. Take a look at our guide to laser transfer printing on dark garments below. For other use cases, simply contact us on 01332 85 50 85 or email [email protected] for advice.

1. Print the A paper on the frosted side with white ink on, using the recommended print settings.

2. Place the A paper print side up onto the heat press and place the B paper glue side down on top and press with medium pressure for 90-120 seconds at 150-160°C. Always use a silicone sheet on the top and bottom of the heat press to protect the heat plate.

 

3. Once pressed, leaving the paper on the heat press, carefully peel the papers apart whilst hot in a smooth, steady motion.

4. Place your garment on the heat press. Trim the edges off the paper to remove any excess glue.

5. Position the transfer on the garment and press for 30 seconds on a medium pressure at 150-160°C.

6. Once pressed, take the garment off the heat press to allow for it to cool down. Peel the transfer cold.

7. Return the garment to the heat press, cover with a silicone sheet and re-press for 30 seconds at 150-160°C.

8. Your garment is ready!

1. Will my design look low quality using vinyl?

A common assumption with vinyl is that they end up looking cheap. However, if you use high quality materials, such as those we provide, this is not an issue.

 

2. Will the vinyl crack or fade?

Your garments should last a good amount of time without the design fading or cracking. We provide high-quality vinyls and paper to prolong durability.

 

3. Can I use dark and light garments for transfer printing?

Yes this method is fine for either. The key thing to remember with dark colours is that the garments will feel thicker than the white ones whereas the fabric that is going to be used for whiter garments is going to be thinner since it is transparent.
